Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets returned to Winnipeg last night after completing their two-game road trip with a 4-3 shootout win over the Bruins in Boston thanks in large part to the play of Connor Hellebuyck in net and Kyle Connor who contributed two goals and the shootout winner.  Today the Jets were scheduled to practice but likely couldn’t get their vehicles started due to this polar winter so practice was cancelled.  Instead they will hit the ice tomorrow morning for AM skate ahead of their game against the Blue Jackets.

Note II:  Today is the final day for the Moose to enjoy some AHL All-Star rest and relaxation before the team resumes their road trip.  They’re got three games remaining beginning with a re-match against the Admirals in Milwaukee who beat the Moose 8-2 last Saturday.

Note III:  Fans of junior hockey here in Winnipeg finally got confirmation of the news which was made official on Tuesday that the Kootenay Ice are relocating to Winnipeg for the 2019-20 season.

Note IV:  Tune in for two hours of NHL hockey talk tonight courtesy of NHL This Week on TSN Radio 1290 starting at 7 pm CT.
