The Jets are fresh off a 4-0 win last night in St. Louis. The team flew into Dallas last night as they finish off this short road trip. Aside from the win over their division rival the big news last night was a report that Vegas retained salary on Derick Brassard to keep him away from Jets.
No word yet if coach Maurice will give Connor Hellebuyck his eleventh straight start tonight or if he will give Michael Hutchinson his second NHL game this season.
Morning skate notes:
No skate for the Jets.
Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports that it will be Michael Hutchinson in net.

Coach Maurice: Who is the starting goalie? On Hellebuyck’s play. Has he seen any sign of fatigue from Hellebuyck? Any other changes to the lineup? Play of Hutchinson. Biggest challenge for Hutchinson? What is he expecting from the Stars? Is he expecting Cheveldayoff to make any trades for veteran help?
