Note: The Jets are scheduled to hit the ice today for practice as they get ready to kick off a seven-game homestand here in Winnipeg which starts with the Stars tomorrow night. Stay tuned for the Practice Report which includes the news that Mark Scheifele is out of the NHL’s covid-19 protocol and practicing.
Note II: Mark Chipman and Kevin Cheveldayoff were to hold a media availability this afternoon but it has subsequently been pushed to tomorrow as the Jets co-owner is ill.
Note III: The Moose three-game win streak came to an end on Sunday as they went up against the Wild in a re-match which saw Iowa goalie Dereck Baribeau stand tell in net and if not for a Cole Perfetti no doubter late in the 3rd should likely have had a shutout. Manitoba is off today and will practice for a few days here in Winnipeg before they leave for Milwaukee on Thursday where they will start a six-game road trip on Friday.
