Note: The Jets kicked off this short two-game homestand yesterday afternoon with a 3-2 win over the Ducks. It was a game that saw 2011 1st round Winnipeg draft pick Mark Scheifele score twice including the game winner which also happened to be his 400th point in the NHL. The Jets will practice today at 11 AM at the IcePlex as they get set to welcome former Jets/Moose and now Wings goalie Eric Comrie along with his Detroit teammates to town on Tuesday night. Check back for the Practice Report for the latest news and audio.
Note II: The Moose were off on Sunday following a weekend split here in Winnipeg against the Wolves. They will practice today at 11 AM at the IcePlex before they take off on Tuesday for a five-game road trip which begins in Texas.
Winnipeg Sun: Ehlers-Getzlaf bout riled Jets’ bench with mixed emotions. It really was a Rocky vs Drago type situation which could have ended very badly.

Winnipeg Sun: Scheifele hits milestone as Jets feast on Ducks. He became just the fourth member of his 2011 draft class to hit the 400 point mark.
Winnipeg Sun: Unheralded Poolman not unnoticed anymore. When Moose bench boss Pascal Vincent said to me last year that he looked like a guy in the wrong league about Poolman in the AHL he wasn’t wrong. The East Grand Forks product has nicely transitioned to the NHL.
Winnipeg Free Press: Ehlers maturing and ‘thinking like a shooter’. (Paywall). And now he is adding fighter to his repertoire to boot.
