If you’re watching the Jets game as they take on the Islanders on Long Island and are wondering where Josh Morrissey is the team indicated:

Considering the state of the Jets back end any time spent without 44 is bad news for Winnipeg.  With Morrissey out it means Carl Dahlstrom, whom the Jets picked up off waivers, gets to make his debut.  He is wearing number 23.


Post-game coach Maurice indicated that Morrissey got dinged up in warm up. Said it was precautionary. Called it day-to-day. Added that Morrissey collided with another player.

After 20 minutes of play in Edmonton the Jets find themselves down 1-0 to the Oilers.

But the big news was that Dan Robertson is now "officially" the new play by play voice of Winnipeg on TSN.

What are your initial thoughts?

The Jets lines to kick off game 1 of the pre-season against the Oilers:

Perfetti - Dubois - Reichel
Harkins - Stenlund - Maenalanen
Malott - Lucius - Appleton
Toninato - Gustafsson - Eyssimont

Stanley - DeMelo
Capobianco - Kovacevic
Chisholm - Gawanke
