Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note:  The Jets practiced on Monday in Toronto as they got ready for their first game of this three-game series against the Leafs. We learned that the plan is to use the same lineup as they had in the last game against Montreal.  As the best plans of mice and men can change be sure to stay tuned for the pre-game report to get the 411 on the lineup as well as today’s media availability.  Puck drop is at 6 PM CST.

Note II:  The Moose played their first ever home game at the IcePlex last night as they welcomed the Stockton Heat to town for the first time since April of 2019.  It was a wild game that ended 6-5 in OT and was one of the more unique games I’ve ever covered.  They are scheduled to practice today as they get set for a re-match with the Heat on Wednesday.

Note III:  Jets 2016 3rd rounder Luke Green, who had been reassigned 12 days ago from the Moose to Sport Vaasa in Liiiga, has terminated his contract with the Finnish club for personal reasons.

Winnipeg Sun: Leafs series a stress-test for construction of JetsThe Jets may not want to use “litmus test” or “measuring stick games” but it is quite obvious that the next three games for Winnipeg are gonna be significant.  Can they thrust themselves into the conversation for top spot in the north or will they be relegated to battling for spots 2-4.
