Note:  The Jets are back in Winnipeg and will hit the ice at 12 noon for today’s training camp skate.  What will day 15 of training camp bring?   Keep it locked to and on social media including Twitter| Facebook | Instagram for the latest Jets news.

Note II:   The Moose will have their final practice in Winnipeg of the week as they get ready to head south to North Dakota for a pair of games over the weekend against the Iowa Wild.  They will be on the ice at the IcePlex at 11 am.

Afternoon Jets news:

Sportsnet:  Jets can’t afford to let Jacob Trouba push them around.  It was an interesting game of chicken played between the two sides in silence and it will be interesting to see what happens as we get closer and closer to that December 1st deadline.

Winnipeg Sun:  Nine forwards competing for two spots on Jets.  I broke out my abacus and the numbers don’t look very good for seven of those guys.  However it does translate well for fans who want to see the most competitive roster that this team has had to kick off an NHL season since the team came to Winnipeg in 2011-12.

Winnipeg Sun:  Laine adjusting to NHL life.  One could almost say he’s learning to live life in the fast laine….that’s right.  I went there.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Power play fizzles, McDavid sizzles.  (Paywall).  If you don’t win the Stanley Cup finals as a result of a good pre-season game or two, I guess similarly you don’t fail to make the post-season because you lose a game or two.

Edmonton Journal:  Connor McDavid scores twice as Oilers down Jets 5-2.  Read about last night’s game from an Oilers beat writer’s perspective.

Oilers 5 Jets 2:

Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice post-game scrum.  Includes a Third period breakdown.  Did they have the advantage?  Any reason why?  Getting started for regular season.  More clarity for the last few spots.  On Tanev’s play.  Thoughts on McDavid.  What does he say to Hellebuyck after that one?  Assessing Patrik Laine’s camp.
