Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets made a claim off waivers on Monday grabbing Swedish winger Axel Jonsson-Fjallby from the Capitals. Now they were required to submit their 23-man roster to the NHL and for now this claim isn’t impacting them as he requires a work visa. They also assigned Ville Heinola to the Moose (see below). In addition to all the roster news the team did hit the ice for their first skate in a few days as they enjoy some R&R in Banff. More practicing today in Banff at 11 AM CDT and also the official 23 man-roster will be released so stay tuned for all of that.

Note II: The Moose reduced their roster to 36 on Monday as they cut six players on PTOs but did add Jansen Harkins as the 2015 2nd rounder cleared waivers. They would end the day with 37 players at training camp as the Jets also assigned Ville Heinola to their AHL affiliate.

Jets news:

CBC: Jets aim to ramp up speed, aggressiveness as new NHL season loom. The buy in from the team sees high so we shall see how they put theory into practice soon enough.

Global News: Jets fans ranked 12th-most dedicated in NHL, according to Ontario-based survey. And third most amongst the Canadian teams.

Sportsnet: In sending Heinola to minors, Jets recognize his play is still more risk than reward. It is always an interesting topic of conversation as to whether you should allow a prospect some growing pains in the NHL vs AHL where a mistake isn’t magnified by 1000%. I can recall days watching the Moose when a rookie would make an error but rather than being stapled to the bench which often happens in the NHL they were tossed back into the fire to learn. If the organization feels there is still a need for development, then the AHL is a good place for that.
