Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest Jets and Moose news, video and audio.

Note:  All three Jets prospects (Ville Heinola, Henri Nikkanen and Cole Perfetti ) at the World Juniors tournament were in action on Sunday. While none of the trio found the scoreboard on Sunday in their teams wins, Heinola had a huge impact on the game playing over 25 minutes while doing things like this and that.

Note II:  Normally we’d publish our overseas prospect report this morning but as a number of players are playing tonight (which is essentially this afternoon in Winnipeg).  You can read it here.

Note III: Some Sunday afternoon news as former Jets forward Mark Letestu has retired.  Perhaps his biggest Jets highlight goes to his mustard munching which seemed to create quite a buzz during the 2019-20 pre-season.
