Though Kyle Connor's intent is still to negotiate and sign a contract with the Winnipeg Jets, some teams reached out to the winger's camp Wednesday on the first day of the restricted free-agent speaking period, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

Connor, a pending RFA, buried 34 goals and produced 66 points while playing all 82 games in his second full campaign with Winnipeg.

The 22-year-old notched 31 goals and 57 points while appearing in 76 regular-season contests in 2017-18.

Connor is coming off his entry-level contract, which carried a cap hit of $925,000. The Jets drafted him 17th overall in 2015.

The window for teams to speak with RFAs from other clubs opened Wednesday morning at midnight.

Winnipeg has five RFAs to sign this summer, including Connor and fellow 30-goal scorer Patrik Laine, according to CapFriendly.
