Jets news:

Global News: Too many injuries could alter Jets’ direction. It really depends. If it is one of the bigger name players then yes that could derail things for Winnipeg. There have been players like veteran forward Sam Gagner who has been moved up. But there are also plenty of role players currently with the Moose (F: Malott, Stenlund, Reichel. D: Chisholm, Gawanke) that could be ready for an opportunity if it presented itself without the organizational need to look elsewhere.
