Winnipeg Sun:  Paul Maurice back for moreHe left his mark on the team to conclude the 2013/14 season and you know that coach Maurice is relishing the opportunity to whip these players into shape (literally) next season.

Winnipeg Sun:  Maurice, Scheifele join Team CanadaA young Jets story from Winnipeg to Minsk as Mark Scheifele gets to play some meaningful hockey to end his year after suffering a knee injury back on March 4th against the Islanders.  He will be joined by his coach who it was announced will be an assistant coach with Team Canada.  Coach Maurice will also get a look at Jets on other teams including Trouba and Hellebuyck on Team USA and Olli Jokinen with Finland (although that is not yet confirmed).
Scheifele heads to room

Winnipeg Sun:  Ondrej Pavelec will remain Jets’ No. 1 netminderIt has become a topic that makes pundits outside our market take note and get their twitter sarcasm readyAs I said on air last night the fact is that the GM and coach are not going to say anything to undercut their goalie at this time.  Does this mean they don’t have reservations?  Of course not but just don’t expect them to air their dirty laundry in the media.
