Winnipeg Jets Practice Report
Most of the Jets were back on the ice at the MTS Centre following a harrowing win over the Wild on Sunday as they get ready for a date with the Flyers on Tuesday night. According to Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg the only guys missing are Blake Wheeler, Chris Thorburn and Mark Stuart while emergency recall Nelson Nogier was on the ice for practice. Jason Bell of the Winnipeg Free Press indicated that Jacob Trouba was skating in a yellow non-contact uniform.
Nelson Nogier: On getting the call up. Who did he call? What was his parents reaction like? How does he assess his year so far? What does he need to work on to improve his game? On the change from Junior to the AHL game. What were the nerves like today? Did playing in the Memorial Cup help him prepare? Playing a more significant role with the Moose with all the recalls? Handling the next 24 hours. What are the biggest strengths to his game?
Brian Strait: What was it like to get back into the NHL? Sense of relief after getting the phone call to come up? What did he think of his game overall? What is it like to see Nelson Nogier get the recall? How did he feel about his pairing with Josh Morrissey went?
Coach Maurice: Injury updates? What does he know about Nogier? What has he liked about Mathieu Perreault’s game the last two or three weeks? On Perreault being a -10. Will he share his goaltending plan for this week?
