Winnipeg Free Press: Silent wars. The true competition at training camp is the one for those bottom spots which usually has the most competition.
Winnipeg Free Press: Dynamic Dane a happy guy. Not bad for a young guy drafted this summer to be thrown onto a line with two of the Jets leaders.
Winnipeg Sun: Tangradi ready to grind for roster spot with Jets. The Jets could use someone with his tools but can he put it all together on a consistent basis? That is a questions he’s been getting his entire career.
Winnipeg Sun: Rookie Nik Ehlers to skate on line with Ladd and Little against Wild. The rookies are certainly being given plenty of opportunities to leave their mark as Ehlers and Lowry play their third games of the pre-season.
CBC: With bag of awards, Jets goaltending prospect Hellebuyck awaits his turn. Goalies tend to develop a tad more slowly but fans I’m sure would like to see this prospect in between the pipes for some game action soon.
