Note: Jets rookie sensation Patrik Laine who had a good showing last night in the Skills Competition, will play this afternoon at 2:30 pm CT.
Note II: The Moose ended their six game road trip last night with a win over the Checkers to go an even three wins and three losses while away from Manitoba. Eric Comrie started all six road games. Chase De Leo left the game and did not return yesterday. The team will have a few days off as the AHL All-Star games gets underway in Allentown, PA on Sunday. Centre and top scorer Jack Roslovic will make his way to the game as Manitoba’s representative.
Sportsnet: Matthews, Laine, McDavid earning respect amongst established elites. Lots of praise for these young bucks and Winnipeg is fortunate to have one of these top young players in the fold.
NHL.com: Laine earns Central two points at Skills Competition. While his accuracy shooting was better in Winnipeg his hardest shot went up a notch in La La land.
