Since the last round of moves the Jets have just reduced the training camp roster by a couple of players (assigning Kostalek on Wednesday and Comrie today) which leaves Winnipeg with the following 29 players:
Goalies: Hellebuyck and Mason (2)
Defencmen: Poolman, Kulikov, Chiarot, Trouba, Byfuglien, Enstrom, Morrissey and Myers (8)
Forwards: Dano, Lipon, Spacek, Copp, Tanev, Hendricks, Matthias, Lowry, Little, Petan, Wheeler, Ehlers, Laine, Armia, Lemieux, Roslovic, Scheifele, Connor and Perreault (19)
Coach Maurice indicated following the skate today at IcePlex (around 1:01 mark of his scrum) that he doesn’t anticipate making any more moves until Sunday or Monday. So the team will practice again at the IcePlex on Friday and Saturday before the playing group heads to Calgary for the final pre-season game.
According to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet “NHL teams must submit their cap-compliant opening night rosters by 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday.”. Who will be on that Jets final 23 man roster? Stay tuned to find out.
