Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets held a practice on Friday which briefly saw Pierre-Luc Dubois be a part of it before he left.  Coach Paul Maurice indicated that something tightened up but he thought he was “probable” for today’s afternoon contest against Ottawa.  No morning skate which mean we will have to wait for warm up to see what the lineup will look like.  Puck drop is at 2 PM.

Note II:  The Moose got two big additions on Friday as the Jets announced they had reassigned Dylan Samberg and Ville Heinola from the taxi squad to their AHL affiliate.  This certainly gives Manitoba an embarrassment of prospect riches on the blueline.  Check out yesterday’s Practice Report.  They are back on the ice today as they get ready for Monday’s season/home opener against the Marlies.

Note III:  As we have done every Saturday for the last 12 years we will welcome you to Illegal Curve Hockey Show but for the first time in over a decade it will not be on TSN 1290 Winnipeg as the station was dealt a death blow by Bell Media during the week. As always we will be chatting all about the Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose and taking a look around the NHL this morning starting at 9:00 a.m. CT. Today’s guests include Andrew ‘Hustler’ Paterson, James Duthie and Jeff O’Neil.  You’ll be able to watch via YouTube live here.  If you cannot watch live you will still be able to get the show via Podcast.

Ottawa Sun:  Hogberg hungry to rediscover his game as he takes Senators’ net from injured Matt MurraySomething tells me he is going to get his chance today when he faces the Jets later today.

ESPN:  Jets prospect Cole Perfetti’s 34 days of isolation: ‘I’m like a quarantine professional now’What a relief it is going to be for these guys once they can get some normality back in their lives with actual hockey to play on Monday.  The Jets prospect has certainly gotten his fill of isolation the last few months.
