Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets begin a four-game road trip out east with a contest in Columbus as they take on a new look Blue Jackets team that wasn’t quite as active as Winnipeg in terms of additions at the deadline last Monday but the team that made the most waves around the NHL with trades a few days prior to the deadline.  Columbus retained UFAs Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky as well as added Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel from Ottawa to help push this team over the edge.  Of course they got pumped 4-0 by the Oilers yesterday so they may be a bit snarly when Winnipeg rolls into town.  Morning skate gets underway at 10:30 AM CT and our pre-game report will have all the latest news and audio.

Note II:  While the Jets were off the ice on Saturday there was still some team news as the league announced that Adam Lowry had been suspended two games for his high-stick on Filip Forsberg this past Friday.

Note III:  The Moose return from their six-game road trip today having gone 2-4-0-0-0 and sit four points outside a playoff spot after they lost last night 4-0 to the Senators in Belleville.  They will have to hope that like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz once said ‘There’s no place like home’ because they will play six straight contests here in Winnipeg at Bell MTS Place.  And that comment has been true for Manitoba who have been almost unbeatable here in the ‘Peg going 12-1-0-1 in their last 14 home games and have already tied the record for most home wins (18) with 10 games remaining.
