Illegal Curve: Jets/Leafs Lineup pdf.
Toronto Star: Kyle Wellwood at home with Jets. Apparently Wellwood picked up some russian when he played in the KHL, which helps with his two russian speaking linemates.
Toronto Sun: Beyak and the Jets return to Toronto. We really enjoy the job that Dennis has done.
Toronto Sun: Set for Jets? Feels more like the Thrashers. When Reimer hears the “Go Jets Go” chants at the ACC, he will start to feel that nostalgia.
TSN: Jets’ Scheifele hoping to force team’s hand. Wouldn’t that be a nice surprise for the team.
TSN: Jets start Pavelec against Remier. Should be a good goalie battle tonight. Guessing folks in Morweena, Manitoba will have some divided loyalty. Munz has tonight’s expected lines.
Globe and Mail: The return of the Jets sideshow hits Toronto. Mirtle earlier tweeted that he had never seen a show like this before:
The Jets dressing room was a complete zoo today. More media than possibly ever in the visiting room.
Toronto Sun: Gardiner in lineup as Leafs host Jets. Jets rookie Mark Scheifele won’t be the only rookie with something to prove tonight.
NHL.com: Jets blue-line could be tested. Defencemen Ron Hainsey and Mark Stuart were both hurt against Pittsburgh (although Stuart returned to play in 3rd) but I am looking forward to watching Meech become the first Manitoban to play for the Jets.
Flint Journal: Lapeer’s Jim Slater tied for team lead in goals for Winnipeg Jets. Had a good conversation with Slater of the GST line about the similarities between living in Winnipeg and Michigan.
ChrisD: Local athletic therapists gloating working for the Jets. Working with an NHL team in your home province is a special experience and one these guys are quite proud of.
