Note: We hope you’ll join us for three hours of the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg talking about the Jets and looking around the NHL starting at 9 AM which you can listen to here.
The Athletic Winnipeg: Cole Perfetti sits atop ranking of Jets prospects, a list low on high-end talent. (Paywall). Nathan Smith at the nine spot caught me by surprise but the prospect from Florida playing in Minnesota could be a player to watch.
Winnipeg Free Press: Leafs a Cup contender? (Paywall). Mike evaluates the seven Canadian teams.
theScore: 6 intriguing players who could still get traded this offseason. While Patrik Laine is obviously on this list the Jets also are listed as a team that is seen as a potential landing spots for some of the other players on this list.
Sport24: Interview with Mikhail Berdin. You’ll need to use Google translate unless you speak Russian. Of course you’ll get beauty translations like this “We buried this ax of war, now everything is fine” about some previous thing that happened in Russia. I knew that Andrei Chibisov and Berdin became close last season in Winnipeg but it’s clear these two remain very close.
Illegal Curve: One-on-one chat with CJ Suess. Had a chance to catch up with the Jets 2014 5th rounder to talk about his new contract, training during this unusual offseason, getting a taste of the NHL and more.
