Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  The second last game before New Years for the Jets will be tonight at the MTS Centre as they welcome the Blue Jackets to town.  Columbus is riding a 13 game winning streak which the Jets will try to quash so they can keep their more modest two game win streak alive and run it to the challenging (for them) three wins in a row.  As always be sure to keep it locked to for pre and post game news and on social media including via Twitter | Facebook | Instagram.

Note II:  The Moose will also hit the ice for a second consecutive day of practice at the MTS IcePlex.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Five keys to Jets vs. Blue JacketsKen has clearly got his lap top working and his list includes: 1) 7th time’s a charm? 2) Cleaning it up vs. East. 3) D is for discipline. 4) Keep the secondary scoring, coming. 5) Watch out for Werenski.  And the big matchup for Ken is Mark Scheifele vs. Brandon Dubinsky.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets’ suffering Stafford seeks scoring surge.  (Paywall).  When it comes to secondary scoring the Jets need it big time and all eyes (including his own) are on #12 these days.

Columbus Dispatch:  After sloppy win, a renewed emphasis on checking.  Learn about the team that the Jets will be facing tonight.

TSN:  Trouba getting comfortable on right side.  With Myers being status quo (see link below) it is probably good that the Jets top pick in 2012 is feeling good these days.
