WINNIPEG - Before this summer is over, fans of the Winnipeg Jets will find out what general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff really thinks of his core group.

Along with nine pending unrestricted free agents, the Jets have another nine restricted free agents, among them are three important building blocks.

At the top of that list is defenceman Zach Bogosian and joining him are forwards Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little.

Captain Andrew Ladd, left-winger Evander Kane, goalie Ondrej Pavelec and defencemen Toby Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien are the only players under contract through 2015-16.

Soon they'll soon have company.

Bogosian is a powerful skater, moves the puck well and is a physical force who played against the opposition's top line all season long. He also has a booming shot and the potential to see his offensive output increase in the seasons to come.
