Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets played one of their best games of the season last night as they dismantled the Dallas Stars 5-1 at Bell MTS Place to kick off a home and home series with their central division rival.  They are 17-10-1 on the season and currently sitting in 2nd spot in the central.  It was a busy morning ahead of their practice scheduled for 12 pm as they claimed centre Nick Shore off waiver from the Leafs and placed Dmitry Kulikov on IR.  They also reassigned Michael Spacek to the Manitoba Moose.   Be sure to check the Practice Report for the latest news and audio.

Note II:  Coach Maurice may have provided some insight into a timeline for injured centre Bryan Little.

Note III:  The Moose dropped their game in Rockport 4-2 last night which means they ended their seven game road trip 3-4-0-0 and are 12-12-0-0 (they are one of just three teams in the AHL that don’t have an OT or SOL this season).  Sami Niku missed his third straight game as he deals with an upper-body injury he suffered in Milwaukee last Wednesday.  With an assist in the loss Jansen Harkins took over sole possession of top spot in the AHL scoring race. He has six goals 22 assists for 28 points in 24 games for the Moose. I cannot call him the forgotten member of Jets 2015 draft class anymore.
