Jets news:

Metro News:  Jets’ playoff quest to be questioned in November Coach Maurice has spent some time talking about the young players who don’t know any better (i.e. the usual grind of an NHL schedule) and this month that is going to be put to the test.  It is a similar schedule to last November (more away than home games) and this Jets crew are looking for a better result than this time last year (4-9-1) in the eleventh month.

Winnipeg Sun:  Six veterans out of the Jets’ lineup tonightLuckily for Winnipeg they have “veterans” like Marko Dano and Andrew Copp to insert in place of the guys who will be missing.

Copp at practice

Winnipeg Free Press:  Maurice adds Dano to new Jets recipe in D.C.  (Paywall).  He has looked good with the Moose since he was assigned there by the Jets and it will be interesting to see if he (and Copp) can show the Jets bench boss what they need to to help secure a spot on this team for awhile.
