Note: This is day seven since the NHL and AHL hit the pause button on their respective 2019-20 seasons.
The Athletic Winnipeg: Recovered from heart condition, Jets’ Mark Letestu not ready for retirement. (Paywall). Ken had a chance to catch up with the veteran forward from Elk Point, Alberta who says he wants to keep playing hockey.
Winnipeg Free Press: Frozen Four to frozen lake. The Jets will happily see this Minnesota born defenceman, who loves to fish, switch to Lake Winnipeg (or Lake Manitoba) just as quickly as they can get his name signed to a contract. Of course that still requires Samberg to declare that he is turning pro. Once he does his adviser becomes an agent and can nail down the details for a contract between his client and the Jets. Mike McIntyre caught up with the Jets 2017 2nd rounder who was enjoying some social isolation on Lake of the Woods.
TSN: Some NHL players propose August-September to finish season. Personally I think it is a terrible move to have playoff hockey in July and August although we had mixed reaction from folks who were commenting on our Instagram page. Where do you fall on this subject?
