Note: The Jets practiced in Winnipeg on Wednesday before they took off for their four-game road trip. The good news for the club is that Connor Hellebuyck was feeling well enough to travel although Jets assistant coach Brad Lauer isn’t as he deals with back issues which means they are pressing Moose assistant coach Eric Dubois into service. With it being a gameday all eyes will be on morning skate which gets underway at 10:30 AM CST. All the relevant news will be posted in the pre-game report so check back for that. Puck drop is at 6:00 PM CST.

With the victory they improve to 25-16-3-2 and sit third in the Central Division. They are off today.
