The Jets kick of 2018 with a game against the Avalanche in Colorado as they look to keep up the momentum they closed out 2017 with in their win against the Oilers.  Coach Maurice indicated that Connor Hellebuyck will start and that Dustin Byfuglien could play if he came back this morning “feeling strong”.

Morning skate notes:
