Note: The Jets held their final practice in Winnipeg on Saturday morning which was a quick one and which saw Evgeny Svechnikov shed his non-contact jersey, although he won’t be a player in the game today. We also know Cole Perfetti isn’t expected to be a player against Vegas. The expectation is Andrew Copp will draw back into the lineup but with no morning skate we will have to see if warm ups (around 2:30 pm) reveal any changes. Puck drop is at 3 PM CT and after the game we want you to join us on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show.
Note II: The Moose are also back in action this afternoon as they welcome the Wild to town for an afternoon contest. Iowa was the last team Manitoba played before their schedule was essentially paused before the Christmas break. They did lose one of their goalies on Saturday as the Jets added 2017 6th rounder Arvid Holm to the taxi squad for insurance. Puck drop is at 2 PM.
