An attorney for Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien says it appears his client will be going to trial in a boating while impaired case in Minnesota. Attorney Mitch Robinson said Thursday that he and a prosecutor were ''miles apart,'' and unable to agree. The next hearing is April 19, and Robinson anticipates the case will go to trial in June. Byfuglien is accused of boating while intoxicated and other charges stemming from an Aug. 31 incident on Lake Minnetonka. He was stopped because the boat's navigational lights weren't on. Byfuglien, a Minnesota native, was on the Chicago Blackhawks team that won the Stanley Cup in 2010. He was traded to the Atlanta Thrashers in a salary dump, and the franchise was relocated to Winnipeg in the offseason.
