Report: Byfuglien mulling future amid personal leave from Jets

Dustin Byfuglien is contemplating his options while on personal leave from the Winnipeg Jets, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie, who adds that there's no timetable for a decision.

The club announced last Friday that the veteran defenseman had been granted a leave of absence. While the reason and timetable weren't disclosed, head coach Paul Maurice said at the time that the blue-liner was "going to be fine," and it was "nothing sinister."

Byfuglien, 34, is entering the fourth year of the five-year, $38-million pact he inked with the Jets in February 2016.
