Note: The Jets had an optional skate on Sunday at the IcePlex although there may have been more players talking than there were skating. Today they are back in action at 10:30 am with a morning skate at Bell MTS Place and the Jets pre-game report will bring you up to speed. Stay tuned throughout the day for any and all Jets news and updates before the 7 pm puck drop via Twitter |Facebook | Instagram.
Note II: The Moose season ended on Friday and on Sunday they held their wrap up day. We spoke to a number of players as well as coach Vincent to get their thoughts on the 2017-18 campaign. While most players will head home for the summer to begin preparation for the next season a few may see their season extended for the remainder of the Jets playoff run. A player like Nic Petan is healthy and is someone I could see being brought up, while Mason Appleton, Sami Niku and Brendan Lemieux are all dealing with injuries of some sort (which may not necessarily preclude them from being called up just for the experience).
