BANFF, Alta. — The Winnipeg Jets are set for the new season.

Their final roster decisions appear to have been made, and though not announced, defenceman Zach Redmond is not on the ice with the team at its practice at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre.

On that last choice to get the roster to the required 23-man maximum by this afternoon, Redmond’s play was not likely a determining factor. His contract, a two-way deal, simply makes it easier for him to go to the AHL, however temporarily.

Also today, defenceman Adam Pardy and centre Patrice Cormier are reported to have cleared NHL waivers. They were placed on the waiver list Sunday.

All three players are likely to report to the St. John’s IceCaps.

The trimming leaves the Jets with 14 forwards (as of today it appears Matt Halischuk and Anthony Peluso are the extras) and seven defencemen (Paul Postma is likely in the seventh slot).

Byfuglien’s return to duty today ends, for now, any question that he might have been seriously injured Friday night in Saskatoon when he fell legs-first into the boards late in the game.

After trying briefly, Byfuglien was not part of Sunday’s practice.

The Jets meet the Edmonton Oilers in Game No. 1 of the season Tuesday night at Rexall Place.
