Manitoba Moose Practice Report

Third and final day of practice before the weekend set of games.

The Moose hit the ice for the third straight day although today practice moved to hockey for all centre as they continue to ramp up ahead of their upcoming weekend set with the Wild which could help them clinch a playoff spot.

New face:

Before practice got underway there was some news as the Moose announced they had signed Jets 2023 7th rounder Connor Levis to an ATO. This will give the Winnipeg prospect an opportunity to continue his development now that his season in the WHL with Vancouver is over.

Skate news:

There was plenty going on today including the first appearance of Moose captain Jimmy Oligny with his teammates since he suffered a season-ending injury after just eight regular season games. His smile was ear-to-ear during the time he was on the ice. Additionally, there was the new face in Connor Levis wearing number 38 and skating alongside Colby Barlow and Daniel Torgersson. Speaking of Barlow it appears he’s giving his beard a fresh start ahead of playoffs as he was freshly shaven today at skate.

Playoff watch:

Manitoba sits nine points up on Chicago and 10 up on Iowa for the 5th and final playoff spot in the Central although the Wolves have a game in hand on both the Moose and Wild. They are also just five points back of 4th place Texas so there is still lots to play for as the season winds down and they have just four games left.

4. Stars 70 points (4 games remaining)
5. Moose 65 points (5 games remaining)
6. Wolves 56 points (6 games remaining)
7. Wild 55 points (5 games remaining).

Up next:

The Moose take on the Wild tomorrow at Canada Life Centre with puck drop at 2 PM CDT.
