Note: After a few days off the grid to re-charge the batteries I am back and here is a recap of the latest Jets news as we get ready to close out August and kick start the final bit of “slow time” before the season gets underway.
Note II: Jets added some depth today announcing they have signed forward Gabriel Bourque who spent last season playing 55 games for the Avalanche.
Winnipeg Free Press: Wheeler already all-in for season. (Paywall). Mike McIntyre adds his thoughts on the upcoming season for the Jets captain.
NHL.com: Pionk eager to take on bigger role with Jets. That’s probably a good thing because with the Jets losses on D Pionk will certainly get a chance to prove himself with the Jets this upcoming season.
TSN 690 Montreal: Jets management will be patient with their RFAs. Former NHL defenceman Aaron Ward joined Simon Tsalikis and Joey Alfieri to discuss the entire RFA situation and what the next move will be for the team and players during their negotiations.
Sportsnet: Sportsnet Today. When asked about a situation that hasn’t received enough attention Jeff Marek said it is the situation between the Jets and Patrik Laine’s camp. Starts at the four minute mark and runs a couple of minutes.
Jets official site: Ground Control. NHL.com’s Senior Fantasy Hockey writer and Good Friend of IC, Pete Jensen, joins the podcast to talk Jets and fantasy hockey strategy heading into the 2019-20 season.

I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
