Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets were traveling back from BC on Saturday so no updates from them on captain Blake Wheeler. Insider Elliotte Friedman did talk about the situation last night on HNIC but didn’t really have much more than “it does sound like the Jets are bracing for a lengthy absence”. The team is off today so no updates are expected until tomorrow.

Note II: Chalk up another win for the Moose as they swept their weekend series with the Griffins after yesterday’s 3-2 win and improved to 15-7-1 on the season (2nd in Central). They’ve won six of last seven and are putting the Win in Winnipeg (9-2-0-0 at Canada Life).

Note III: Good luck to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as they go for their second straight Grey Cup when they take on the Ticats in Hamilton later today. Lots of Manitobans will be cheering for the blue and gold.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Jets have gotten by without Wheeler once already this season, have tools to repeat the process. Not gonna be easy but opportunity knocks for players who want it and as Scott outlines the team has had success this season without their captain so they’ll need to rediscover what they did well earlier in the year.

Sportsnet: With Wheeler out, Jets need cumulative effort to replace his production. While this isn’t ideal this will be an opportunity for one or two players to step up and seize a role with the Jets.
