Jets news:

Global News: Morrissey’s leadership on display in Jets’ comeback victory. Seems to be a topic du jour. Kelly chimes in on number 44.

Winnipeg Free Press: Morrissey born to lead. (Paywall). He is a natural leader, respected by his teammates, can handle media in tough situations and is committed to the city until at least the 2027-28 season (which is longer than anyone else on the team).

Sportsnet: 32 Thoughts. Nothing too exciting in here about the Jets. In thought 5 he mentions Morrissey and being named next captain and in thought 28 he spoke about Connor Hellebuyck and who he doesn’t like around his crease.

Sportsnet: Scout’s Analysis: How the Winnipeg Jets should approach trade deadline. An interesting read with an assessment of the current Jets team and some players that could be of interest (and what a potential trade might involve).

Winnipeg Sun: Josh Morrissey leading Jets on and off the ice. Folks will be talking about that Morrissey goal celebration for the rest of this season and beyond. For a mild mannered guy like him it was quite the reaction, which as we discussed after the game was defining for both his team and the fans.

The Athletic Winnipeg: Jets’ Josh Morrissey is showing why he’s captain material. (Paywall). While I personally was of the opinion that 44 should be the next captain of this team prior to this season starting, the fortunate part for the Jets is they have a number of players who could step up and wear the ‘C’. Murat details why Morrissey would be a good choice for the third captain of the Jets 2.0.

Jets video:

The Chris Johnston Show: Could the Jets make a big splash on or before the trade deadline? Chris Johnston and Julian McKenzie were chatting on the CJ Show and answering fans questions.

Jets prospect news:

Daily Faceoff:  Winnipeg Jets’ Chaz Lucius making the WHL look silly. It is exactly the sort of boost a 19 year old kid without a lot of hockey under his belt the last few years due to injury, needed.
