Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  The time is now for Jets brass to produce.  Plenty of bold talk and it will be very interesting to see what it all looks like when it gets on the ice.  

Winnipeg Free Press:  Recovering defenceman likely to play at least one game in weekend tourney.  (Paywall).  This is good news for the prospect as he gets to test out how the healing process has gone.

Winnipeg Free Press:  New deals for Jets GM Chevy, head coach Maurice mere formality.  (Paywall).  There was plenty of chatter this summer as to why the deals hadn’t yet been announced but now both have shiny new contracts in their pockets as they look to help the franchise take next step (or two) forward.

Sportsnet:  Paul Maurice says Mark Scheifele will be Jets’ captain someday.  This really shouldn’t be much of a surprise to anyone who follows the Jets.

Sportsnet:  Time is now for Jets to prove patience pays off.  This fan base has patiently waited throughout this build process for the team to turn the corner and this season many expect this team to take a big leap forward.

TSN:  Maurice: Myers, Enstrom healthy entering camp.  A healthy defensive squad for the entirety of the season is going to be as critical as any factor for this Jets team to have success.
