It will be a big night in the desert as the Coyotes are retiring Shane Doan’s jersey. A draft pick of the original Jets 1.0 back in 1995 he played his rookie season in Winnipeg before the team relocated to Arizona. He played a total of 21 professional seasons.
We learned yesterday courtesy of Jets practice the rough timeline of Dustin Byfuglien’s recovery and that Blake Wheeler/Dmitry Kulikov, who missed skate yesterday, are both expected to play tonight. We also learned that Laurent Brossoit gets the start in net. For now the projected lines listed below is simply based on the last game.
Jets cancelled morning skate.
