Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose news and audio.

Note:  It was a busy practice for the Jets on Saturday although the big news was that they have lost Dmitry Kulikov for at least a month after he sustained an upper-body injury on Friday night.  Today the team will skate at 9:30 am for morning skate as they prepare for the Devils before puck drop at 6 pm.

Note II:  The Moose played the Griffins last night in a goal and fight filled affair that saw the home side kicked it old school on retro jersey night to pick up a 6-2 win which concluded the four-game home stand.  They left this morning for Texas and will play four straight away from Bell MTS Place starting with a school day game Tuesday morning at 10:30 am against the Rampage.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  Five keys to Jets vs Devils.  Ken’s big matchup is Nikolaj Ehlers vs Kyle Palmieri. His five keys are: 1) Wheeler leading the charge. 2) Moving on up. 3) Watch the MVP. 4) Who is no. 1? 5) The rebound.

NBC Sports:  It’s time to stop labeling Blake Wheeler as underratedAs I said on yesterday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show (which coincidentally you can listen to below) I think it largely has to do with the fact that Wheeler plays in Winnipeg.
