Training camp hasn’t started, and already Devin Setoguchi is leaving a good impression on his new Winnipeg Jets teammates.

As reported by the Winnipeg Free Press, Setoguchi was part of a skate with Zach Bogosian and Mark Stuart on Friday. His skills – particularly his shot – were a source of conversation with the Jets’ defensemen.

“Yeah, he’s fun to watch,” Stuart told the Winnipeg Free Press.

“Just his shot, you can tell he’s a goal-scorer. I’m excited to have his offence.”

The 26-year-old Setoguchi was acquired by the Jets in a trade with the Minnesota Wild in July. He spent the past two seasons with the Wild, scoring 13 goals and 27 points in 48 regular season games during the lockout-shortened campaign.

He has one year remaining on a three-year contract that pays him a total of $9 million, and is an annual cap hit of $3 million.

Setoguchi is previously a first-round, eighth overall pick of the San Jose Sharks from the 2005 NHL Draft.

    See how fun he is when he goes on a 35 game stretch without scoring a goal.

    As a Wild fan, I was bummed to hear that he got traded. Best of luck Guch!!

      Why?

      Good value trade for a very inconsistent forward…. Fair deal for both clubs but I’d rather see zucker / nino play

      • credible316 - Sep 1, 2013 at 2:01 AM

        Because he was a good player. He was/is getting more gritty and physical and can score. I’m not saying he’s a first line guy and he should never had been. He’s a solid second liner and I think he will go on to be more successful. I just think we gave up on him too early, but I guess that’s why I’m behind the keyboard and not behind the GM desk.

        so if the Wild gave up on him too early, what did San Jose do then???

        or maybe, both teams were smart for shipping him because he didn’t help the club win as much as other assets may in the future.

        Seto is what he is, nothing special. He would be a great 3rd line winger on a great team… 2nd liner on an average club.

        glad he was traded.
