Breaking News – Winnipeg Jets Release Eight from Training Camp

The Winnipeg Jets today announced they have released the following eight players from training camp. Players will report to the following teams where indicated.  Austen Brassard – Bellville Bulls(OHL), Mike Kirkpatrick – St. John’s IceCaps (AHL), Levko Koper, Adam Lowry – Swift Current Broncos (WHL), Kendal McFaull – Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL), Sebastian Owuya – Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL), Ivan Telegin – Barrie Colts (OHL) and Zach Yuen – Tri-City Americans (WHL)

Winnipeg Free Press:  Noel making plans for cutdown.   Not surprising that the Jets are going to reduce their roster to a more manageable number.

Winnipeg Free Press:  He’s an overnight sensation but a voice of reason.  It’s a good thing that Hawerchuk is voicing his opinion as I’m not sure anyone else could curb the enthusiasm of the Jets fans and not get a harsh reaction.  (well Ducky and IC’s own Richard Pollock who will have a post on Scheifele at 10 am today).

Winnipeg Free Press:  Postma skating on bubble.  As Ryan covered in yesterday’s On the Farm column, there just isn’t going to be room for this young Jets prospect barring injury.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets revved up.  The fans will be buzzing for the entire season.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets love Mellchiroi’s upside.  These young prospects should be happy that they aren’t being rushed to the NHL.  A lot of them need the seasoning of another season in jr before they are ready to make an impact.  Long term development for the franchise will see the benefit.

Portage Online:  Local Jets player flying high after first win.  Portage la Prairie’s Troy Bodie talks about playing in his first Jets game.

CBC:  Winnipeg Jets are a true Hollywood story.  This is a story not yet finished.  While many Jets fans feel the happy ending (Jets return) has occurred, the true end is a parade which ends at Portage and Main and Winnipeg celebrating its first Stanley Cup victory.  (of course it might take a few years for that to happen, but we can wait).

Winnipeg Sun:  Scheifele’s a keeper.  I think that it is premature to start making emotional decisions and IC’s Richard Pollock will have a post at 10 am today further to that point.

Globe and Mail:  Keep fourth line on the bench.  If you haven’t bookmarked Roy MacGregor’s column in the Globe and Mail, you are missing out.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets debut to include party at Forks.  It is the meeting place in the city and an appropriate spot for Jets fans who will miss out on watching the game at the MTS Centre.

IceCaps News:

CBC:  St. John’s IceCaps jerseys revealedI like the jerseys.  Clearly very similar to what the Jets are wearing.  What are your thoughts on them?

    By “clearly very similar” to the Jets’ jersey, I figure you actually mean “the same”?  The jersey design works far better for the IceCaps then it does for the Jets, though.

    The Jets primary logo looks better as a shoulder patch.
