End of Manitoba Moose 2023-24 Season media availability | Captain Jimmy Oligny

We hear from the captain of the Moose as he closes out his sixth season in Manitoba (third with a ‘C’).

Moose captain Jimmy Oligny was ready to put a frustrating 2022-23 season behind him after an offseason injury kept him out of the lineup until January of 2023. He was limited to just 17 games with Manitoba. He signed a one-year contract with the AHL club of Winnipeg back on July 5th, 2023 ready to get his third season as captain and sixth overall in Manitoba underway.

Unfortunately for the Quebec product he played just 17 games in 2023-24 before an injury in early November forced him to leave a game. Five days later we learned that Oligny would require surgery and would miss “months”.  Three weeks after that we asked for an update and head coach Mark Morrison indicated that his captain’s season was likely over as it would take six months plus for his rehab.

We spoke with Jimmy about his run in Manitoba, working to get back on the ice, frustration with dealing with a second straight season with a major injury, resiliency of his team which went from last in AHL to a playoff spot, his future and more.
