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:  Questions remain, but Jets team of 2013-14 is coming togetherEd looks at what we know but has been re-confirmed, what we’ve learned and what remains undecided.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Zinger has his finger on JetsYou have to wonder how many people outside of Winnipeg even know that he was once the equipment manager with the Manitoba Moose?.  While he remains humble he continues to find success with the organization he has been loyal to almost his entire career.

Winnipeg Sun:  Joining the PardyHe had a bit of a rocky start in the game against the Senators but the Pardy is just getting started (that is never going to get old) as coach Noel gets more comfortable with using the defensively minded Newfoundland native in his roster.
