Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Tim’s Notebook.  (Paywall).  Some notes on Morrissey, Scheifele and Jets home record.

Winnipeg Sun:  Teams competing for best tank.  You could hear the disdain of the concept in Drew Stafford’s voice when the topic was broached yesterday following skate.  While fans are excited at the prospect of a top pick players don’t care about anything past the current season.  That’s just their reality.

Winnipeg Sun:  Byfuglien pumped about Jets’ future, World Cup.  When you get the big man speaking candidly he can say quite a bit.  He was in one of those moods yesterday.

CBC:  5 Things to Watch.  Montreal limps into Winnipeg Saturday night to end their four game road trip.  Article includes: 1)  Sharp shooting Scheifele. 2) Dynamic Dane.  3) P.K. Subban.  4) Priceless.  5)  Jets special teams.

CBC:  Scheifele eager to lead the Winnipeg Jets youth movement.  Scheifele has spoken about growing as a player and part of that is recognition that he has to go up against other top centres in the NHL in order to grow as a player.

Illegal Curve:  Nikolaj Ehlers out indefinitely with eye injury.  Expecting further news today from the Jets coach on the length of time that the Jets rookie will be out of the lineup.

Illegal Curve:  Anthony Peluso out with upper body injury.  Jets bench boss said that the top pugilist on Winnipeg will likely be out 3-4 weeks as a best case scenario.

Illegal Curve:  Jets Practice Report.  A look at who was missing from practice yesterday at the MTS Centre.  Also has audio from Dustin Byfuglien and Drew Stafford.

Jets audio:

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Hustler and Lawless.  The guys discuss whether Jacob Trouba is a part of the future for the Jets.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice scrum.  Update on missing players (Peluso, Ehlers, Trouba).  On the growth of Mark Scheifele.  Clarification on Ehlers injury.  Lucky to be wearing a visor!  Why wouldn’t the Jets call up Connor Hellebuyck? On Hellebuyck’s number?  Has he made a decision on a forward recall?  Has he ever hesitated playing Scheifele at centre?  On Peluso’s injury.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  The Big Show.  Color analyst Shane Hnidy joined the guys to talk about Jacob Trouba’s game, the team’s inability to close out in the third and Mark Scheifele’s evolution into a potential number one centre in the NHL.

Moose news:

Illegal Curve:  Josh Morrissey recalled.  With uncertainty surrounding Jacob Trouba (who coach Maurice said was probable for tonight’s game) the Jets recalled Morrissey from the Moose.

Illegal Curve:  JC Lipon recalled.  He was getting ready for a pair of games in Texas but with news that Anthony Peluso and Nikolaj Ehlers were out the Jets called JC Lipon back to Winnipeg.

Prospect news:

Illegal Curve:  Kyle Connor’s point streak hits 20 games; continues to lead NCAA in scoring.  It wasn’t all bad news yesterday for Jets fans.  Hobey Baker seems to be a lock for the Jets 2015 1st round pick whose point streak continues at 20 games.
