    Niku determined to stick with Jets

    Sami Niku apologized Friday after disclosing he doesn’t read the papers and, thus, wasn’t rattled by rumours suggesting the Winnipeg Jets might just trade him away. "I’m sorry. I don’t personally read anything about me or what’s going on," the 24-year-old defenceman said during an afternoon phone chat.

    With two-year deal, Harkins could be here to stay

    The 23-year-old forward signed a two-year contract with the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday that will pay him US$725,000 per season. It’s a one-way deal, unlike his previous entry-level pact that included a tiny fraction of that salary in the minors. Now, he’ll make the full pay regardless of where he plays.
