Not a bad pickup, although he's been waived before.

Wright could become a prototypical fourth line center -- no offense but good defensively.

But if he doesn't work out in WPG, the Jets maybe stuck with him since his two-year contract is structured in a way, that in his second year, Wright makes the same dollars whether he plays in the NHL or AHL.

Does this mean the Islanders didn't put in a claim? They have the higher priority, right?

I don't agree with that. Unless his offense has vanished since his time with Tampa at least.

He is never going to be a big scorer. But he could be a decent 3rd line centre. Pool noodle needed to put on some weight when he was with Tampa but was decent defensively (playing on the PK in the NHL at 19), but did show flashes of his scoring touch, especially in the AHL.

Always wondered what the hell Tampa saw in this kid to keep him in the NHL at 19. 48 of his 49 NHL games were when he was 19. Don't think he'll ever be much of a scorer but hopefully he works out as a checker for Winnipeg.

I'll always have a soft spot for the pool noodle.
