Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Young-gun goalies aren’t saving Jets.  This was supposed to be the year that one of the heir apparent would seize the reigns and become the #1 goalie for Winnipeg.

Winnipeg Sun:  Trouba logging major minutes.  With Tyler Myers not looking like he is going to be back anytime soon, it continues to be the opportunity that Jacob Trouba wanted.  Clearly this Jets team needs what this dynamic young player can bring on a nightly basis.

Winnipeg Sun:  Five keys to Jets vs. Islanders.  Ken’s list includes: 1) Bounce back ability. 2) Keep streaking. 3) Build on solid showing. 4) Powerful stuff. 5) Welcome back (again) and Ken’s big matchup is Nikolaj Ehlers vs Travis Hamonic.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets have two No. 2’s between pipes.  (Paywall).  Coach Maurice wasn’t exactly defending his goalies who have allowed the fifth most goals against in the NHL.

TSN:  Scheifele and Trouba star in The Nutcracker. (Video).  Jacob Trouba and Mark Scheifele took their day off to star in The Nutcracker with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. The Jets stars hope they can use the experience to springboard their acting careers and get them a role in Pitch Perfect 3.

Illegal Curve:  Jets Injury Report.  Updates on Marko Dano and Tyler Myers.

Illegal Curve:  Jets Practice Report.  A look at the players who hit the ice for practice as well as audio from Adam Lowry and Coach Maurice.

Moose news:

Illegal Curve:  Checkers triple jump the Moose with 3-2 OT win.  Includes a quick recap and post-game audio from Brandon Tanev, Kyle Connor and Coach Vincent.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Moose stumble in extra time.  (Paywall).  Mike brings you inside the MTS Centre for his recap of the game last night.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Name difficult to pronounce, offensive surge hard to explain.  (Paywall).  Kevin Czuczman has certainly raised some eyebrows with his game this season.

Illegal Curve:  Moose make some roster moves.  They lost Andrew Copp to the Jets and then Manitoba made four moves to get down to a more manageable number.
