Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Dane dynamic once again.  (Paywall).  He has two (nice) goals in his last three games and he seems to have rediscovered his creativity.  While he still sometimes tries a junior trick or two it is clear that his coach is trusting him more and more as the season progresses.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Tired Jets gut out big win.  (Paywall).  It truly was an impressive performance by a team that desperately needed a clean two points against a central division opponent.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets gut out 1-0 win over Wild despite playing with makeshift lineup.  They began the night nine points back of Minnesota but managed to narrow that to seven with the victory.  They are also closer to Colorado and Nashville (coincidentally the two teams they play next).  Perhaps, similar to last season, the adversity is what this team needed to turn around their fortunes.

Sportsnet:  Hellebuyck makes 24 saves, Jets shut out Wild.  The rookie netminder has now won 11 NHL games and posted two shutouts since being called up by the Moose.  His save % now sits at .931 (4th in NHL) with a GAA of 2.00 (3rd in NHL).

CBC:  Cheveldayoff’s big gamble with Byfuglien.  Never really pegged the Jets GM as a gambling man.  Interesting column on the potential scenarios for the way this Byfuglien situation could end up.

Minneapolis Star Tribune:  Wheeler helps extend Wild’s home misery vs. lesser teams.  The local boy struck again. Read about the game from an opposition beat writer.
