Winnipeg Free Press: Kane appears unfazed by recent dry spell. Jets fans have to hope that the young gun will break out of his slump soon as they need his scoring in order to get this ship on track.
Winnipeg Free Press: Career advancement. Another waiver wire pickup that seems to be working out quite well for GM Kevin Cheveldayoff.
Winnipeg Free Press: D getting healthier, happier. If there wasn’t so much fallout from the #HelmetPardy the buzz for Jacob Trouba and Mark Stuart engaging in a regular practice would have been a lot more significant.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets slow out of gate in practice, can’t do same against Blackhawks. These Hawks will eat you up and spit you out if you take them too lightly. No slow starts tonight or the Jets will be way, way behind the eight ball.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets treat rookie Mark Scheifele with kid gloves. Which is why you had to think that some time in the AHL would have served the 2011 first round pick well. Having said that you can understand the need the Jets had for keeping him up with the big club.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets throw cold beer on helmet-wearing fans. Paul offers his take on the nixing of the #HelmetPardy.

Illegal Curve: Jets players post-practice audio. Hear from Jacob Trouba, Evander Kane, Andrew Ladd and Mark Stuart.
Opposition (Hawks) news:
