Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets practiced on Thursday following a tough loss on Wednesday and if they want to salvage their season (however remote that chance is at around 1%) they have to start tonight against Western Conference leading Colorado. They also flipped prospects with Dylan Samberg coming up to the NHL and Ville Heinola heading to the AHL. Morning skate gets underway at 10:30 AM CT so stay tuned for the pre-game report to get the full 411 ahead of the game against the Avalanche. Puck drop is at 7 PM CDT and following the final buzzer we want you to join the conversation on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show.

Note II: The Moose are in Milwaukee where they will have a re-match against the Admirals after picking up a 3-2 win in their first game of this road trip. If the playoffs started today it would be a 1st round meeting between these two teams who have already met 10 times this season (Manitoba won six of ten). This is the 11th of 12 meetings with puck drop at 7 pm.

Global News: Jets failing to live up to lofty expectations. Last summer with an augmented D group, a solid forward core and a Vezina winning goalie it seemed like the world was their oyster. Not so much approaching 10 months later as a team that was seen by minimum as a playoff team is likely to miss the 2022 post-season.
