Winnipeg Jets training camp starts tomorrow with medicals and physicals but if you can’t wait that long, here are some late night hockey stories to wet your appetite.

For those who haven’t seen this yet, Capgeek.com has complete NHL Salary Cap Depth Charts available on their site.

Here is the depth chart for the Winnipeg Jets (Zach Bogosian’s contract included)

Winnipeg Jets News:

Winnipeg Jets: The hottest ticket in town. The Globe and Mail’s Roy McGregor writes about something that Winnipeg Jets hockey know already by now: Having a Winnipeg Jets ticket in your hand is equivalent to having solid gold in your hand. Hat tip to Chuck Duboff, friend and fan of Illegal Curve, who gets mentioned in this article.

Winnipeg Sun: Scheifele makes outstanding first impression. Ken Wiebe is 100% correct here. Scheifele was arguably the best player in the Young Stars tournament and count me in as someone who believe’s Scheifele’s future looks very, very bright.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets’ Sol evolving into solid player. The 6’6”, 240 lb. tower of power moves pretty well and I was rather impressed with his play in Penticton.

Around the NHL:

The Dallas Stars to be sold to Vancouver businessman. I have a feeling that there are going to be more than a couple new National Hockey League owners in the months and years to come. Hello Phoenix. 

New Jersey Devils bring back Petr Sykora. Great to read that the Devils have offered Petr Sykora a tryout with the team. I would say that Sykora has a decent shot at making the team.
