Note: With the Jets, Moose and Ice all now in offseason mode our notes section will be consolidated.
The Athletic Winnipeg: What the Winnipeg Jets can learn from each NHL conference finalist. (Paywall). The NHL is a copycat league so Murat does his best to figure out what the local NHL club can stand to learn from the four remaining teams in the playoffs.
The Hockey News: Cole Perfetti – Loose from the Moose. The 2020 1st rounder could have used some playoff seasoning (and conversely the Moose could have used him) but for a clause in the CBA which wouldn’t allow him to be assigned for Calder Cup playoffs. Despite this he will have an excellent opportunity next season.
Sportsnet: 32 Thoughts. Jeff Marek spoke about Pierre-Luc Dubois and Elliotte Friedman mentioned a new name in connection with Winnipeg (if they don’t get Trotz).
Illegal Curve Hockey: Saturday Podcast. Topics from yesterday’s show included: Jets coaching search (nothing new with Barry Trotz, is Scott Arniel a lock to return to Winnipeg as associate/assistant coach, other potential head coaching candidates). Kevin Cheveldayoff’s comments about Mark Scheifele at NHL Combine in Buffalo. Jets signing 2020 6th rounder Tyrel Bauer. Guests included Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun and former NHL goalie and current analyst on TSN/RDS Marty Biron.
