Winnipeg Free Press: Blue-liner Myers is a big deal (Paywall). Will be very interesting to watch what a full season with the big defenceman will be like for Winnipeg.
Winnipeg Free Press: Things a bit different now, says Burmistrov (Paywall). Interesting comment from the former and now current Jet on the composition of the team and how it is a lot of the same players but at the same time feels different.
Winnipeg Free Press: Comrie can afford to wait (Paywall). Fact is goalies take longer to develop anyways and with a number of goalies ahead of him on the depth chart there is no rush on the young netminder.
Winnipeg Free Press: Jets bring intensity to scrimmage at training camp (Paywall). Plenty of physical battles as guys brought up the intensity level on day 3.
Winnipeg Sun: A new Burmistrov. Plenty of fans are excited to see the talented centre return to the fold. He sure sounds ready to go now that he is reacquainted with the Jets.
Winnipeg Sun: Tempers flare at intense Jets scrimmage. Even when practicing hockey can be intense and occasionally it spills over into a little battle.
MyToba: Maurice looking at the playbook half-full. With a number of prospects fighting for available spots the Jets bench boss likes what he has seen to date.
MyToba: Can new NHL rules help the Jets lock more wins? Any time you can get away from the shootout it is a positive thing for the game.
Day 3 of Training Camp audio:
Illegal Curve: Coach Maurice. Intensity of scrimmage. Wheeler’s leading on the ice. His thoughts on some players. Getting ready for games. Will Tyler Myers be used in pre-season? Myers/Stafford knowing the Jets system. When will they start cutting down on the numbers? No Ladd today? What does he tell the prospects who are down on the depth chart?
Illegal Curve: Player scrums. Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford and Alexander Burmistrov.
