Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  As if the Jets infirmary wasn’t already full, two more players are dealing with something as Andrew Copp was ruled out in the AM and Josh Morrissey was a late scratch ahead of last night’s game in Brooklyn.  Despite a patchwork blueline they pulled off the 3-1 win over the Islanders which meant a three-game sweep of their east coast road trip.  Today they are off so we won’t have any health updates until Thursday practice.

Note II:  It has been three days since the Moose last played and there has been quite a lot of lineup turnover as they continue to deal with injury and recalls.  Tonight they look for a measure of revenge on the Condors after they were handed a 4-0 loss on Saturday night in Bakersfield.  Puck drop goes at 8:30 pm with the pre-game show starting at 8:15 pm on TSN 1290 Winnipeg.

Note III:  Tune into a slightly extended version of NHL This Week on TSN 1290 Winnipeg as the show will start at 6 pm and run for 2 hours and 15 minutes to take you right to the start of the Moose pre-game show.  Plenty of Winnipeg Jets and NHL talk to come so tune in here.
