This is the last Central Division game for awhile for the Jets who play within their division just twice in the first 17 games of the season (Minnesota Wild two days ago and Hawks tonight). The Hawks are winless in their first two games of the season.
AM Skate Notes:
The Jets cancelled morning skate. There will be a media availability at 3:30 pm so any lineup news will come out at that time. For now the lineup is simply based on last game versus Minnesota.
Coach Maurice confirms that Ville Heinola comes out and Carl Dahlstrom draws in.
Jets projected lines, D pairs and goalies:
Coach Maurice: Any roster changes? Reasons for the move. Hellebuyck starts? On the groove Hellebuyck is in. On the goalie plan. Any update on Bryan Little? What has he liked about Roslovic’s game? On Adam Lowry’s line. On the stretch to start the season. Learning on how the players respond. What did he like about Dahlstrom’s game? Any chance David Gustafsson gets in?
Puck drop is at 7:00 pm CDT. Be sure to head over to illegalcurve.com following the game for a recap of the action which includes post-game audio from the Jets room as well as from Coach Maurice.
