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.
Winnipeg Free Press: Pre-season an abstract painting. Paul is correct in suggesting that the final score doesn’t matter. While you always want to see your team win, the importance of the game are for evaluation of the talent.
Winnipeg Free Press: This Frolik thing could work. A player with adaptability is a nice piece for any club to have.
Winnipeg Free Press: Notebook. Lots of players in camp. Peluso’s fighting. Seeing new division mates. Samson’s nerves.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets on right track going with youth. Still pretty clear that the youth are going to need some more seasoning and you can expect that the Jets will start by making some cuts in the next day or so. Ted also writes about the challenges facing Paul Postma and a rusty 1st line.
Winnipeg Sun: White makes case for blue-line job. Will be interesting to see how the defence position shakes out with an over abundance of D-men in camp.
Winnipeg Sun: Hard-working Halischuk impresses Jets faithful. Showed some nice touch as he accelerated on the breakaway and scored the lone goal for Winnipeg in the loss.
Global News: Fans optimistic about season, downtown business hope to cash in. It is a time of plenty for Jets fans and businesses who are full of enthusiasm as the young season gets underway.
