Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news.

Note:  The Jets were off on Saturday following a pair of back-to-back games on the road Thursday and Friday night.  We will have to wait to see how Mark Scheifele is after he took a bad hit from Boone Jenner in Columbus.  They hit the ice at 9:30 am for morning skate.  Update:  Check out the latest in our pre-game report.

Note II:  The Moose are off today following a pair of games this weekend against Belleville.  Last night Manitoba dropped a 3-2 decision in OT despite looking like they’d earn the split.
