Posted by David Minuk in Daily Papers,Winnipeg Jets on April 18, 2017 — No Comments

Note:  Both the Jets and Moose are done in terms of team availability following yesterday’s end of season media session with the Moose.  But with the upcoming expansion draft as well as the Entry Draft in Chicago at the end of June we will have plenty of fresh content as well as reflections on the 2016-17 seasons of both the Jets and Moose.

Jets news:

None.  (Will have something up on site at 11 am).

Moose news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Team battled to the finish.  (Paywall).  Quite literally in this case as the team played spoiler against the defending champs in Cleveland.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Moose season’s success not entirely measured by win-loss record.  (Paywall).  Plenty of prospect development which is the mantra of the organization.

Global News:  End of season tough for Manitoba Moose veterans.  It isn’t easy as the seasons pass you by and you keep missing the playoffs.  There were certainly some gains by the young players.

Global News:  Darren Kramer handed 3 game suspension.  While he won’t like having to sit for three games next season you got the sense that his teammates appreciated the effort that he put forth in the defence of Patrice Cormier.

Moose audio:

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  We finished the season the right way.   Head coach Pascal Vincent joined Rick Ralph to recap the Moose season.

Illegal Curve:  Moose coach Pascal Vincent end of season press conference.  The Moose bench boss spoke for over 21 minutes on a wide range of topics including assessing his first season as Manitoba coach, his players, his development as a coach and more.

Illegal Curve:  Moose players 2016-17 end of season interviews.  We chatted with 14 players including Cormier, Roslovic, Connor, Comrie, De Leo, Lemieux, Harkins, Kichton, Nogier, Czuczhman, Kramer, Strait, Howden and Lipon.
