Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  It was a busy Monday in Jets land with news that Tucker Poolman is day-to-day although based on practice it sounds like the Jets could get Nathan Beaulieu back for tonight’s game against New Jersey.  It is an optional morning skate at 10:30 AM along with a media availability so be sure to check back for the Pre-game Report.  Puck drop is at 7 PM.

Note II:  Another twist to the Dustin Byfuglien saga according to Darren Dreger who yesterday indicated that the NHLPA continues to gather information and that it is likely a grievance will be filed by the PA once the matter has been fully reviewed.

Note III:  The Moose are in Milwaukee today and will practice at 12:30 PM as they get set for tomorrow’s school day game against the Admirals which gets underway at 10:30 AM.  The Moose got CJ Suess back as he was assigned yesterday and it was announced that Jansen Harkins was the CCM/AHL Player of the Week after putting up one goal and seven assists this past weekend.
