Winnipeg Jets Practice Report
The Jets got to Chicago on Tuesday night after the win in Buffalo and had a day off on Wednesday. Today, they are back on the ice as they prepare for back-to-back games against the Hawks on Friday and the Wild on Saturday.
According to Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg “Adam Lowry & Brandon Tanev are in a non contact jerseys” and below are the lines the Jets are rolling today in practice.
Goalie for tomorrow:
Coach Maurice confirms that Connor Hellebuyck gets the start against the Hawks.
Neither Adam Lowry nor Brandon Tanev will be a player against Chicago according to coach Maurice who added “We will re-visit it for Minny but again unless they feel they are at 95 for Minny, we will hold them out.”
Lines & D Pairs:
Coach Maurice: On Wheeler/Hellebuyck getting selected for the All-Star game. Status of Lowry/Tanev. Why is Mathieu Perreault “easy” to play with? When is it like to the team when a guy like Perreault works so hard? On today’s practice. Getting a chance to watch Hawks/Wild face off. Looking at the video of the 3rd period in Buffalo. Did he have to say much about the 3rd to his players? Hellebuyck starts?
