The Jets honoured the Ukrainian U25 Team here in Winnipeg before the game. Standing O from the fans here in Canada Life for the kids who are touring western Canada as part of the Hockey Can’t Stop Tour.

It seemed, based on a two minute span before the midpoint of the 1st that it was going to be the kind of game for Kyle Connor that he was going to win someone at least 100K and possibly a million.

Pierre-Luc Dubois on pace for close to 60 assists this season. His career high is 34.

Not exactly the guy you’d think would be a shorthanded specialist but Dylan DeMelo has three goals for the Jets between last season and this one and two of them are shorthanded goals. Interestingly, DeMelo has two goals in 36 games for the Jets this season. He had one goal in his previous 187 games (last three seasons).

Kyle Connor with the fifth Jets hat trick of the season (fourth of his career, second of season).
