The Jets practiced at Rexall Place in advance of tonight’s game against the Oilers. Coach Noel met with the media prior to puck drop.
Coach Noel – Does he need to say more to get his troops motivated? Does he expect Stuart to be a player? Big difference heading into the Christmas break with a win vs. a loss. What’s the plan with the goalie (Pavelec). What went into that decision? What would he do if a Jets fans tossed a Jets jersey on the ice at MTS? Consistency talk. How much has Mark Scheifele’s game grown since his first game this season at Rexall? Could he be a number one centre in this league? Challenge the Oilers present.
