Kovacevic was waived by the Jets on Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Kovacevic only drew into four games with Winnipeg last season, going scoreless over that span, so he was always expected to begin the 2022-23 campaign in the minors. The 2017 third-round pick picked up 30 points through 62 AHL appearances in 2021-22.
