Winnipeg Free Press:  Losing ways could lead to brighter days for Jets.  (Paywall).  Scott writes about the rivalry between the Jets and Oilers and all the entails in the past, present and future.

TSN:  Odds are Matthews heading north to Canada.  No Eric Lindros type situation from the sounds of it which should make the fan bases in Canada quite happy.  Bob also writes about Jets 2015 1st round pick Kyle Connor and what might happen with him.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Hustler and Lawless.  Head coach Paul Maurice sits down with the guys for an extended interview about the 2015-16 season. Maurice discusses the development of players like Mark Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers, the performance of goaltending and special teams, and why he’s delayed naming a captain.

Moose news:

Illegal Curve:  Moose escape Heat, win 3-2.  Recap includes plays of game, injury notes & post-game audio (Coach McCambridge, John Albert & Jake Baker).  Moose hang on for the win to sweep two game series with Stockton Heat.  Russ gives you his recap of last night’s game.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Although they play for the AHL’s second worst team, Hellebuyck and Comrie remain prime NHL prospects.  (Paywall).  In my mind there isn’t a better goaltending duo in the NHL than these two prospects.
