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

Note: The Jets concluded their short, two-game homestand with a 3-2 shootout win over the Kraken last night as they were the final team in the NHL to play a shootout this season. Impressively they secured their 34th win of the season in game 54 which took them until gam 73 last season. They are scheduled to practice today at 11 AM before they head out on the road for four games. It is always possible they punt practice and take off for Columbus but if practice proceeds then check back for the Practice Report.

Note II: While the Moose were off on Tuesday there was some news as Axel Jonsson-Fjällby cleared waivers and was later assigned by the Jets to their AHL affiliate. His assignment gives Manitoba a tremendous amount of depth. The team lost goalie Arvid Holm to the parent club as he was recalled on an emergency basis due to Connor Hellebuyck being under the weather and we shall have to wait and see which goalie heads out on the road with Winnipeg. The Moose are in action against the Wild tonight in Winnipeg as they kick off eight straight at home. Puck drop is at 7 PM CST.

Note III: The Eastern Conference leading Ice will conclude their homestand with a visit from the Broncos. This will be your last chance to see the top team in the east as they head out on the road for ten games after tonight’s contest. Puck drop is at 7:05 PM CST.
