Note II: After two days off the Moose return to the ice for practice as they prepare for eight games in Winnipeg. They got a reinforcement with the reassignment of Johnny Kovacevic on Tuesday.
Star Tribune: Wild-Jets rivalry to resume as Marcus Foligno’s suspension ends. The Winnipeg game against Chicago on Monday wasn’t even over and we were seeing comments from Minnesota on twitter like this one via Michael Russo of The Athletic who had this quote from Jordan Greenway “It’s going to be fun. We owe ‘em. They better be ready.”
Sportsnet: Lack of balanced attack derailing Jets’ search for consistency. Sometimes it comes down to the simple answer and for this Jets team it is that they do not score enough goals to win. They rank 26th in the NHL at 5 on 5 goals for. That just isn’t good enough.
Official AHL site: Moose’s Meireles running with opportunity. He has been a nice find in a season full of nice surprises for the Jets farm team.
