Sportsnet: Off-season outlook for Winnipeg. Another assessment of where the Jets are and what needs to get done.
Winnipeg Free Press: Bogosian too important an asset to let slip away. No question the Jets need to get Bogosian signed to a long term deal. And while fans would like to see this done asap, it might still be awhile before it gets done.
Winnipeg Sun: True North opens its Shark Club gaming centre. If you are looking for a place to watch the game in style check out this new facility in the heart of downtown.
TSN: Evander Kane interview on Mike Richards in the Morning (audio). The Jets forward spoke with Toronto radio yesterday. According to the review they covered “It was a tough year for the Winnipeg Jets not only narrowly missing out on the playoffs but also a South East division title. Playing in a hockey hotbed such as Winnipeg has its pros & cons, but the atmosphere at the arena is completely different from Atlanta. It should be interesting to see how the Jets stack up in the Midwest division next year.”
