Winnipeg Free Press: McCambridge moves up, grateful. Sounds like he learned a lot from Jets coach Claude Noel, and hopefully that translates to success in his new role.
The Telegram: A man with a plan. It does say a lot about McCambridge that he was willing to leave the opportunity to be an NHL assistant coach, to take on the responsibility of head coaching in the AHL.
NBC Sports: Jets announce their new logo is almost complete, but won’t be released anytime soon. At least we know they will have to reveal it before the 1st exhibition game, so we’re somewhere within a month of seeing the new jersey/logo.
Around the NHL:
Edmonton Journal: Good reasons for province to support arena. David Staples makes the case for the Province to help out with funding a new Oilers arena using the past example of Manitoba with the MTS Centre.
The initial investment by the city of Winnipeg and the province of Manitoba in the MTS Centre, the new home of the Jets, will amount to $165 million over 20 years when you add up tax breaks and rebates, VLT revenue, and a $40-million upfront investment, reports Colin Craig of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation.
Toronto Star: Crosby back on the ice. Good news for Pens fans as well as Jets fans who hope to see number 87 when Pittsburgh comes to town for the 2nd regular season game at the MTS Centre in October.
Columbus Dispatch: Replacing Huselius top priority for Blue Jackets. Add Columbus to the list of team`s looking for a top 6 forward.
Kansas City Star: Sprint Center doing fine without NHL or NBA. Doesn’t seem like K.C. is too hard pressed to get an anchor tenant for their arena.
