No word if he asked Ben Chiarot (2016-19), Keaton Ellerby (2014-15) or Derek Meech (2012-13) but the Jets announced that defenceman Dmitry Kulikov has switched his number from 5 to number 7 for the 2019-20 season. He wore 7 when playing in Russia, 7 when he played for the Panthers (his first NHL team) and 77 for his one season in Buffalo.  With Chiarot off in Montreal Kulikov will assume his preferred number.

Another day of training camp in the books in Winnipeg as some Jets prepare to head to Montreal for the third pre-season game on Thursday.

The Jets playing group for tomorrow's game in Montreal is set and most skated together so the lines and D pairs can be "reasonably" inferred.
