Note: We finished off our series with Jets 2018 2nd rounder David Gustafsson on Monday. In our concluding post we looked back with him at his first year pro in Winnipeg, his current season in his hometown of Tingsryd and looked ahead to the upcoming Jets season. You can read it here.
Note II: Also on Monday we put out our latest Jets Overseas Prospect (or player under contract to Winnipeg) Report which was updated to reflect Mikhail Berdin making his first start since November 16th and David Gustafsson missing his third straight game. You can read that here.
Note III: A blast from the past last night as Teemu Selanne was rocking the reverse retro Jets jersey. However despite the good will the Finnish Flash garners it wasn’t enough to get folks on board with the new look.
Note IV: From prospects who are playing to one who hasn’t played a game since March, I will be speaking to Jets 2017 3rd rounder Jonathan Kovacevic this morning. Stay tuned for that.
The Athletic Winnipeg: Jets fan survey 2.0: Faith in Patrik Laine remains, Cole Perfetti earns praise. (Paywall). Murat asked questions and fans reacted in a significant manner.

Sportsnet: For Jets’ defence to improve, stability and internal growth will be key. Ken isn’t hitting the panic button over the Jets backend.
