Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Jets and Moose news.

Note:  Today is the final day of Winnipeg Jets Development Camp at the IcePlex.  All the prospects will hit the ice at 10:30 am.  Be sure to follow along on twitter @illegalcurve and instagram as I will be down at the rink for the final skate.

Breaking News:  The Jets have agreed to a four year contract extension for Mathieu Perreault who was previously only signed on for one more season (2016-17).  Our post contains reaction from GM Kevin Cheveldayoff as well as head coach Paul Maurice.

Jets news:

Sportsnet:  Jets’ window of opportunity opening sooner than later.  Plan the parade earlier than 2019 apparently.  Still many things need to go right but the boost of the second overall pick definitely accelerates the Jets plans.

Winnipeg Free Press:  From long shot to a project.  (Paywall).  Every team hopes they are the team that is able to mine some gold within the draft.  Should be a big year for Appleton in East Lansing.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets prospect making adjustments on and off the ice.  (Paywall).  Spacek is a prospect many are keeping their eye on as his development path continues this year.

Winnipeg Sun:  Prospect impresses at development camp.  Ken provides some insight on prospect Eric Foley.

Moose official site:  Mentors lead the way.  Prospect Nelson Nogier is the latest feature of Mitch’s blog.

Sportsnet:  NHL Off-Season Power Rankings: Who is improving most?  The Jets may not have made the playoffs last season but the folks over at Sportsnet think that this past draft has bumped them to the top 10.

Macleans:  Len Kropioski is an optimistic Winnipeg Jets fan.  Fans always enjoy reading about one of their favourite people inside the MTS Centre and will be happy to read that he has signed up for another five seasons of Jets hockey.

Illegal Curve:  Notes from the IcePlex.  Quick thoughts on Lemieux, Connor, Roslovic, Foley, Blomqvist, Spacek, Poolman, Cederholm, Niku & Harkins.

Jets audio:

Illegal Curve:  Group A scrums.  Plenty to hear from prospects Jansen Harkins and Brendan Lemieux including Lemieux’s comment about his battle during Wednesday’s scrimmage against Nelson Nogier “he was wearing the wrong colour jersey I guess”.
