Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets didn’t have a very good day on Sunday as they lost for the third straight time as the Islanders left Winnipeg with a 4-0 victory in their back pocket. They have just one win in their last five games and yesterday they slipped from tied for 2nd in the Central down to the first wild card spot. In fact had the Kraken defeated the Leafs (they didn’t) Winnipeg would have slipped to the second wild card spot. As it is they sit just five points up on the Flames who are in 9th place. Of course they are also just three points back of 1st place Dallas so important to remember that. The Jets are scheduled to practice and may have newest Jet Nino Niederreiter along for the skate. Be sure to check back for the Practice Report.

Note II: The Moose were off on Sunday after they finished sweeping the Admirals on Saturday afternoon. They are off today although some players will be visiting one lucky Manitoba family for the backyard rink contest this afternoon.

Note III: The Ice were in Edmonton yesterday where they demolished the Oil Kings 8-1 which was their 10th win in-a-row. Conor Geekie (Coyotes) and Zach Benson (2023 draft eligible) each had a hat trick (Benson also had three assists and sits 2nd in WHL scoring). These two teams have a re-match tomorrow morning in the capital of Alberta.

Jets news:

Sportsnet: After third straight loss, Jets must find urgency level to get back in division race. The frustration is evident from this Jets team as they are mired in this malaise of losing right now. But as illustrated above they aren’t that far back so if they can get back to form they aren’t that far from flipping the script and changing the narrative about this team.

Winnipeg Sun: Staggering Jets welcome Nino Niederreiter with open arms. Just some of the ways that Rick Bowness described the newest addition included: “That’s going to be a big boost”, “He makes our top six better”, “He’s hard to play against. We need that right now.” and “He’s a big guy. When he’s going, he’s hard to handle.”.

Winnipeg Sun: Forget another trade, Jets need heart transplant. After being embarrassed by the defending Stanley Cup champs on Friday the expectation was Winnipeg would start the game on time. They didn’t.  They had one shot in the first 20 minutes of the game. 

Winnipeg Free Press: Niederrmeiter can’t get here fast enough. (Paywall). One reason Jets fans will like Nino Niederreiter is he has a preference to shoot the puck. Given the inordinate amount of passing this team seems intent on doing that will be a nice change of pace.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets slip-sliding away. (Paywall). ‘Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are’. Well, now they are no longer just in the rear view mirror for Winnipeg.

NY Post: Islanders overwhelm Jets for convincing win before trade deadline. Be sure to check out the game recap from a writer that covers the Jets opponent.
