Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Jets and Moose news.

Note:  The Moose wrapped up their practice schedule in Winnipeg yesterday and will spend today traveling to Texas for their final two road contests of the AHL season.  They take on the Rampage tomorrow night with puck drop at 7:30 pm.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Scout racking up air miles.  The focus of Jets fans (and the scouting department) for some time has been the draft at the end of June in Buffalo.  Sounds like Mark Hillier is certainly gaining some serious frequent flyer miles.

Metro News:  Jets season wasnt all doom and gloom.  While the end result wasn’t very good there were some bright individual spots for the team.

Illegal Curve:  Which Winnipeg Jets are playing in the World Championship in Russia?  A look at the guys who have committed to playing next month, those who have declined and those who have yet to be asked but could make their respective home country squads.

Jets official site:  Prospect Report.  Some updates on Brendan Lemieux, Michael Spacek and Scott Kosmachuk as well as the latest numbers on a bunch of the other prospects in the system.

Michael Spacek

CBC:  Review of the Jets season.  (Video).  For our French readers former NHLer and current TSN 1290 analyst J.P. Vigier gives his assessment of the Jets season in Francais.

Jets audio:

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Hustler and Lawless.  GM Kevin Cheveldayoff joins the guys to review a season that ended without the playoffs.  Runs 40 minutes.

TSN 1290 Winnipeg:  Hustler and Lawless.  Bryan Little joins the guys to discuss his season that ended in injury. Little says he was nearly ready to return to play and had been skating with the team, discusses the job Mark Scheifele did in his place, and expects strong competition at training camp.

Manitoba Moose:

Winnipeg Free Press:  A positive spin on losing.  (Paywall).  As I’ve been saying for quite some time now while as a collective this season hasn’t been a good one for this group, individually a number of players have made big strides.  See a different side of prospect Josh Morrissey.  He didn’t want to talk about it throughout the year which is a testament to the character of the young prospect.
