The Hockey News: Before I made it – Johnny Oduya. Interesting story about his progression in hockey.
New York Times: Jets’ team records go all the way back to Atlanta. Winnipeg fans still want to talk Selanne breaking Bossy’d record and Hawechuk winning the Calder but truth is the records to compare against belong to the Thrashers.

New York Post: One wander hosts another. Lots of former Thrashers on this time although many aren’t expected to play against their former team.
