Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers
Note: The Jets picked up a 7-4 win over the visiting Golden Knights last night which means that Winnipeg is tied atop the NHL with the Lighting for most points in the league. The team is unbeaten at Bell MTS Place in their last nine games (8-0-1). The team was scheduled to practice today but will instead hold a media availability which you can catch in the Winnipeg Jets Practice Report. They take on the Senators tomorrow at 6 pm.
Note II: It was a November to remember for the Manitoba Moose as they went 12-2-0-0 and ended it yesterday when it was announced that Jack Roslovic and Michael Hutchinson were announced as the winners of the CCM/AHL Player and Goaltender of the Month for November respectively. The Moose have a re-match with the Monsters tonight at Bell MTS Place as they look to pick up their ninth straight win. We will have complete coverage for Illegal Curve.
Note III: Tune in (and even join us on site as we will be at Polo Park for the Toy Mountain drive) on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am for the Illegal Curve Hockey Show kicking off three hours of Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose and NHL hockey talk.
Winnipeg Sun: Laine gets boost he needed. Whenever he talks confidence he seems to go on a good run so perhaps their is some method to his process. Ken recaps the game.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets use big third period to beat Golden Knights. (Paywall). Quite the comeback for the Jets after getting off to a quick start. Used a big 3rd period to quash a very fast Vegas team.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets climb atop Western Conference with 7-4 win over Golden Knights. (Paywall). Not sure how many people would have predicted that this would be the case to start December.
Winnipeg Free Press: Laine looking to shift into a higher gear. (Paywall). With 12 goals in 26 games it hasn’t been a complete disaster for the sophomore but he knows that he is capable of still getting to that next level.
Sportsnet: As the Jets’ defence and goaltending improves, what’s their weakness? Right now it is all coming up Millhouse for this Winnipeg team.
theScore: It’s time to give Cheveldayoff some credit for Jets’ success. Much like his team following a win I suspect the Jets GM isn’t patting himself on the back just yet as a good record in November won’t be remembered come June.
Illegal Curve: Elliotte Friedman talks Jacob Trouba and the Winnipeg Jets. Hockey insider for Sportsnet Elliotte Friedman was on Boomer & Warrener on Sportsnet 960 today and the topic of the Winnipeg Jets came up and specifically Jacob Trouba.
