Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest Jets and Moose news, video and audio.

Note:  The Jets got some bad news ahead of their game against the Ducks on Tuesday as Patrik Laine was ruled out of the game with a lower-body injury and was listed as day-to-day by his coach.  His absence and lack of a recall from the Moose meant the Jets went 11 forwards and 7 defenceman against the Ducks.  The game started well for Winnipeg but a topsy-turvy 2nd period cost them the lead and ultimately the game as they dropped game one of the three game road trip by a final score of 7-4.  The Jets are off today but will be back on the ice on Thursday for practice in San Jose.

Note II:  Unlike the Jets the Moose got some good news on Tuesday as Sami Niku traded in his non-contact uniform for a regular one at practice.  Today the team is off but like the Jets they will be back on the ice on Thursday for a practice as they get ready for a pair of afternoon games this weekend at Bell MTS Place against the Griffins.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun:  After 13 games, it seems this is pretty much what Jets are going to look like all seasonIt all adds up to the Jets collectively to the need to have 33 back in the lineup or at least some sort of resolution on that front.  It has hamstrung this team and you wonder how much longer they can go without it being resolved.  Of course with all the injuries with their Central division rivals right now it may allow the Jets to keep pace.
