Jokerit GM Jarmo Kekäläinen says about Winchester that there aren't many players available like Winchester who could have signed a NHL contract but weren't happy with the terms of the offered contract and decided to play in Europe instead.

So I can only speculate that Jesse negotiated with Ottawa but didn't get a contract he was happy with.
It wouldn't have to be Ottawa, per se.
