The conditional pick in Monday's trade would see Winnipeg's fourth-round selection in 2022 go to NY if the Jets with the Stanley Cup this spring.

"It was kind of a good way to end my time as a Sen, and I probably felt more comfortable because I was in this building (rather) than had we gone somewhere else".
