Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Stay tuned for more sights, sounds and video from last night’s Skills Competition which we will post later this morning.
Winnipeg Free Press: Kids help Jets forget woes at skills competition. The Jets really were accessible to their fans as they took down the glass in the boards and the players interacted and signed autographs all evening long.
Winnipeg Free Press: He’s got their attention. Sounds like Lipon is playing quite well on the Rock.
Winnipeg Sun: Peluso surprises by besting Byfuglien in Jets hardest shot competition. Of all the events last night I think many in the crowd assumed that Buff had the hardest shot contest in the bag. However, somewhat unexpectedly, Anthony Peluso landed the heaviest blow (to the puck and not a face) registering a shot over 103 mph.
Winnipeg Sun: Do the Winnipeg Jets have a goaltending controversy? Al Montoya has definitely done enough to justify more starts but I’m not sure we have a controversy just yet.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets are Fuelled by Patience in third year of existence. What is the answer? Should fans be gathering in a mob with pitchforks or is patience acceptable if the end game can be seen?
Winnipeg Sun: Notes from the Road. Ken gives you a glimpse at his thoughts from the road in this comprehensive piece.
