The Jets had to make one more move today to have a 23 man roster ahead of the 4 pm CT deadline and with Andrew Copp proving to be healthy the team has assigned Kyle Connor to the Manitoba Moose. This gives the Jets a 23 man roster with Matt Hendricks being placed on the injured reserve.
While Kyle Connor certainly has more skill than some of the players left with the Jets the writing was on the wall the last couple of days with him skating as the extra forward. Of course, the move to the Moose will give him the opportunity to continue to hone his game and if he is able to continue doing what he did last season with Manitoba, it will only be a matter of time before he is up with the big club.
As always stay tuned for the latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news by keeping it locked to illegalcurve.com and on social media including Twitter | Facebook | Instagram. And you can follow me on twitter as well (@icdave).
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
