Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets completed their three game road trip out east in style courtesy of a 4-1 win over the Senators last night to improve them to 3-1-0 on the season. They flew back to Winnipeg last night and are scheduled to hold an optional practice here today at 1 pm with media availability getting going at 12 noon as they get ready to kick off seven straight at home starting with these same Senators they’ve beaten the last two games on Saturday night.  Stay tuned for the Practice Report.

Note II:  The Moose will know their schedule today as the AHL is planning a reveal. Of course unlike normal seasons this year will look largely like last season’s schedule against Chicago who Manitoba was slated to play 12 times. This season it will be 12 games each against team (Belleville, Laval and Toronto) in the All-Canadian Division.  We will have that for you today at 11 AM CT. Update:  The AHL revealed all division schedules EXCEPT the All-Canadian one today which mean you’ll have to stay tuned.
