There are only so many spots on a full-time roster sheet for defencemen and more than enough candidates suitable for the job. Paul Postma is among those hopeful blueliners fighting for a spot on next seasonís Winnipeg Jets lineup.
Postma, 23, signed a new one-year, one-way NHL deal with the Winnipeg Jets on July 13th, 2012. He was a seventh round (205th overall) selection in 2007 by the Atlanta Thrashers and signed a three-year entry-level contract in April of 2009. This new contract being a one-way means that if he is unsuccessful making the Jetsí lineup, he will have to clear waivers to be sent down to the AHL.
