Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets will try to leave last night’s 4-0 loss to the Avalanche in the past after a successful homestand saw them go 2-1-1.  It was their first regulation loss in November and first loss to a central division opponent (although they haven’t played very many to this point in the season).  Today they are scheduled to practice at 11:00 AM at Bell MTS Place and will then leave for Florida as they get set to take on the Panthers tomorrow night.  Still a question as to whether they may take an extra forward for the trip (Update:  They recalled Michael Spacek).  Stay tuned for the Practice Report.

Note II:  The Moose had a day of practice on Tuesday as they look to keep their hot streak going.  They started this four-game homestand on Monday with a 4-1 win over the Stars and they will look for the sweep in the re-match this evening.  Morning skate gets going at 10:00 AM and then puck drop is at 7 pm.

Winnipeg Free Press:  Goalie stones Jets in first NHL game.  (Paywall).  Unfortunately the folks back in Sweden wouldn’t have known when the day began that Werner would be making his NHL debut but by now they will know that the pride of Mariestad had a hell of a good start to his NHL career.

Winnipeg Free Press:  MacKinnon, Makar help depleted Avs squad bury Jets 4-0.  (Paywall).  These two were simply sensational with MacKinnon getting points on all four goals and Makar scoring once and hitting iron at least twice.  Hard to believe this Avs team is as injured as they are.  Werner makes 40 saves in debut, Avalanche shut out Jets.   Don’t look now but the Avs have now won three straight after enduring a bit of a losing streak in a topsy-turvy central division.
