Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  The Jets look to start December by finishing off this home stand a perfect 3-0 as they face the Edmonton Oilers tonight at 7 pm.  The Jets got some welcome news as Tobias Enstrom is back from Sweden, the injury prognosis on Marko Dano was better than expected and Mathieu Perreault has declared himself ready to play.  We will have to wait until morning skate to see what the Jets bench boss decides to do about his lineup as yesterday was an optional practice.  Keep it locked to for pre and post game and on social media including via Twitter | Facebook | Instagram.

Note II:  The Moose capped of their three game road trip in Rockford last night with a seven round shootout win after Brendan Lemieux was the only player on either team to score once OT ended.   They have now won three games in a row (all against Central division opponents) and sit 3rd in the division.  They will have the day off today before they get ready for back-to-back matinees against the Texas Stars on Saturday and Sunday at the MTS Centre.  Jack Roslovic was hot on the road scoring three goals and adding two assists to get his points total to 15 in 19 games for the rookie who lead Manitoba in scoring.
