Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: All this month we wanted to bring to your attention the Pass it Forward program which provides help to youth in Winnipeg who wish to play hockey but require aid in getting the necessary equipment. The program is in it’s 5th year, they have a website, an active twitter feed @PassItForwardca, and they are giving away a autographed game used stick. Be sure to check it out.
CBC: Kane in penalty box over unpaid tickets. Obviously ability to pay the tickets wasn’t the issue, but nonetheless the young sniper forgot to pay for his driving infractions.
Winnipeg Free Press: ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’. Most would say that based on last season we haven’t seen much from Olli Jokinen but as I’ve said numerous times I expect him to bounce back from the disappointment of last year.
Winnipeg Free Press: Slideshow from practice on Wednesday. For those unable to make it down to the IcePlex check out some pictures from inside practice.
Winnipeg Sun: Prospect Jussi Olkinuora hopes to move quickly up the depth chart. As a fan all you can hope is that the added depth will continue to push the guys who are ahead of these young guns in the roster.
Jets official site: Individual Ticket random draw. Throw your name into the draw and you might earn the chance to get some Jets tickets. In additional ticket news according to Senior Director of Corporate Communications Scott Brown, pre-season tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and will be available through Ticketmaster.
Globe and Mail: Brian Burke discussing deal to join Flames front office. Gonna be some truculence in Cow Town if this turns out to be true.
Edmonton Journal: Oilers look for Ales Hemsky to play ‘big part’ in any turnaround. Having to have a presser to quash the rumours is an interesting way to handle things by MacT.
Globe and Mail: Contract talks with Sedin brothers could be complicated. Things could be quite interesting in Vancouver as they try and get these deals done.
