Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  McKenzie not short on motivation.  Ken writes about another forward coming from the Winterhawks system who is big on talent while small in stature.  Article also touches on goalie Mikhail Berdin, defenceman Antoine Crete-Belzile and Tucker Poolman.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jamie Phillips working his way up goalie ladder.  He made a nice jump from the ECHL last season to the AHL.  But as Ken writes there will be a lot of competition next season.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Sutter looks to forge his own path on ice.  (Paywall).  Another player who is still chasing the dream.
