Analysis:

This was a no-brainer signing for the Winnipeg Jets.  Nogier will undoubtedly be a leader on the Manitoba Moose if there is an AHL season.  Nogier is definitely not out of the running for a roster spot on the Jets although he will be in tough.  The product of Saskatoon has played a handful of games (eleven) for the big club and for the most part, has been pretty decent.  

Final Thoughts:

Nogier is a good solid defenceman that plays a simple game and provides good organisational depth for the Winnipeg Jets
