Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: Due to last night’s Jets/Canucks game NHL Mid-Week goes tonight on TSN 1290 Winnipeg from 6 pm to 8 pm discussing all the latest Winnipeg Jets and NHL news from across the league. Guests: Andrew Gross (Bergen Record) and Mike Colligan (NHL analyst at Forbes SportsMoney and Pittsburgh Penguins correspondent at The Hockey Writers).
Winnipeg Free Press: Slater says he meant no harm. As he said post-game he isn’t that type of player and he genuinely felt he got the worst of the hit. Felt that Kesler bailed out at last second to avoid contact.
Winnipeg Free Press: It would be a different story if Scheifele were healthy. We see the value of a centre each and every time someone else is playing in that 2C role. The Jets just don’t have the depth to replace someone like Scheifele.
Winnipeg Sun: Another blow for Jets in shootout loss to Canucks. Ken breaks down the action from the 3-2 SO loss to the Canucks.
Winnipeg Sun: Snapshots. Paul breaks down the Canucks win, looks at the Canucks diving, nastiness in the game, Kane shooting blanks, Tortorella fielding questions, importance of centres over wingers and old-school face off rules.
Winnipeg Sun: Dry spell finally over for Canucks’ Burrows. The former member of the Manitoba Moose didn’t get the cheers he used to get when playing here in the AHL but he will take his first two goals of the season just as well.
Winnipeg Sun: John Tavares gives jersey to young Islanders fan mocked at MTS Centre. Nice conclusion to the story for the young Islanders fan.
