Note: The Jets have themselves a bit of a streak having won their last two games to close out 2022 which puts them 2nd in the Central and has given them some breathing room while they wait for their laundry list of skating wounded to return. Schedule for this week isn’t yet set but expectation is they will practice today as they prepare to kickoff 2023 with three games at home starting with the Flames on Tuesday. Be sure to check back for the Practice Report and perhaps an injury update as well.
Note II: The Moose will practice today in Winnipeg before they head out east where they will play their next six games starting in Quebec against Laval on Wednesday.
Note III: The Ice swept their two-game series with the Blades this past weekend which is a good thing for the top team in the Eastern Conference with Red Deer nipping at their heels in the 2nd spot. Next up they’ll play the 2nd place in the Western Conference Portland on Sunday. May feel like a home game for the Winterhawks who have seven Manitobans on their roster.
