Note: Tune in for three hours of Winnipeg Jets and NHL hockey talk on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg. Today’s show starts at 12 noon.
Note II: The big news on Friday was that Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff had inked a pair of RFAs in Logan Shaw and CJ Suess to one-year deals.
Winnipeg Free Press: Classic Jets descend on Winnipeg to revisit 1979 Avco Cup win. The team that helped put the city on the map and paved the way for NHL hockey is celebrating a major milestone.
TSN: Trouba, Zaitsev talk heating up. Nothing really new here about the Jets right side top pairing D man. He remains number two on the trade bait board with “multiple teams interested” in acquiring his services.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets captain, wife throw support behind CancerCare fundraiser. Missed this story from the other day. Always good when players can use their celebrity for a good cause.
Jets official site: Q&A with Director of High Performance, Dr. Craig Slaunwhite. If you have questions about the combine they are probably answered via this Q&A.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
