Winnipeg Sun:  Little comes up big.  There was some angst as the Jets top centre was without a point in his first three games of the season along with Jacob Trouba and Tobias Enstrom.  (Adam Pardy is also on that list but he has only played one game).  Little quickly capitalized on both the PK and PP against the Rangers and quelled some of the concern over his offensive game.
