Note: This is day 96 since the NHL hit the pause button on the 2019-20 season.
Note II: We remain on pandemic hiatus so no Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg but we did record another IC CurveCast last week. We were joined by Andrew “Hustlerama” Paterson from TSN 1290 Winnipeg to talk Jets/Flames play-in series. You can listen/watch here.
Illegal Curve: Jets sign Kristian Reichel to a two-year deal. It isn’t a surprise to me that Reichel earned himself this contract with the Jets as I wrote in my column about the Moose season concluding due to the pandemic “One player who certainly earned himself another contract is Kristian Reichel who was a Jets Development Camp invitee in 2018 and has subsequently signed with the Moose twice.”.
TSN: Who is the most intriguing player to watch against the Flames? Which Jets player has the most intrigue around them heading into the matchup against the Flames? Which depth forward for Winnipeg could make an impact in the series? Could Sami Niku see any game action against Calgary? Sara Orlesky is joined by Brian Munz to discuss.
Sportsnet: Vegas will be NHL hub city for Stanley Cup Playoffs when play resumes. One down, one to go.
