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:
INJURY UPDATE: D – Josh Morrissey will not play in tonight’s game due to an upper body injury sustained during the pre-game warm up.

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.
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.
