There has been a lot of talk about Mark Scheifele's future and what will happen to him. Still, the team’s general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has resolved all doubts. “Yeah, I do,” the team’s general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff on Tuesday said at the 2022 Adidas NHL Scouting Combine, as quoted by NHL.com.
“My exit interview with Mark went well. Again, it was an emotional time for everybody. We asked [our players] to wear their emotions in the exits, and I think they were very productive”.
Mark Scheifele's future: I have to think about my career
The team is not playing as expected this season, and that is why many are thinking about what will happen to Mark Scheifele.
Scheifele revealed that he will make the final decision in the summer. There is a lot of success behind him with the club, but we will see if some difficult moments within the team lead him to change the club “Obviously I love it here,” Scheifele said.
“It’s been the only place I know. I obviously think there are a lot of big questions to be asked this offseason about where the team’s going and what’s all going to happen. … I’d love to be in Winnipeg, but I also have to see where this is all going and what direction this team is going in, and I guess we’ll see this summer."
There are many who will be involved in this decision. Agents will of course look for the best option for him, but the family has their preferences, and that is why Scheifele will have the difficult task of making the right decision.
“I have to think about my career and what’s going to be best for me. I have to talk to my agents and everyone in my family and stuff like that and figure out what I really want”.
