Winnipeg Free Press: Adrenaline rush for Ladd. Peggers’ aren’t used to seeing NHL players out and about in Winnipeg (unless it is summer), so for the next year (or five) the novelty of same will leave both the players and fans a bit dazzled.
Winnipeg NHL Site: Ask a Jet. A new feature that allows fans the opportunity to pose their questions to Winnipeg Jets players, coaches, staff and management. The first up for fans is Andew Ladd, so get your questions in by August 29th.
Winnipeg Sun: Ladd excited to be back in town – albeit briefly. The Jets made a very good move in securing him for the long term.
The Barrie Examiner: Colts camp all ready for kick-start. Barrie looks like a Jr. Jets team, with a couple of their prospects playing under the watchful eye of former Jets 1.0 great Dale Hawerchuk.
Winnipeg Free Press: We’re begging you Mr. Bettman, no Nickleback. Ouch a lot of hate being thrown at the Cdn act. Having said that, I’ve never been a fan of them either. Why don’t we have the local Weakerthans perform………oh wait.
After the jump is Winnipeg interested in Kyle Wellwood, the 204 area code is the place to be and up close and personal with the Jets Bryan Little. In ‘Around the NHL’ news Langenbrunner finds a new home/role, Magnus Paajarvi jump to the NHL and Fenway Park to host another outdoor hockey game.
True Hockey: Wellwood hopes to return to San Jose, Winnipeg interested? He can continue to “hold out” (if this rumour is accurate) on the Jets while he waits for a call that is apparently not coming from the Sharks, but he would be better off coming to the Peg’ and working hard this season.
Winnipeg Free Press: Area 204 rocking nation. While I am someone who has always loved living in Winnipeg, with the Bombers rolling the Jets season less than a month away (wow) and summer continuing like it won’t ever end, it is time people in the Peg’ acknowledged that there really hasn’t ever been a better summer in this city.
Winnipeg Free Press: Up close and personal with Bryan Little. The player picked by Jets goalie Chris Mason on the IC Radio show a week or so ago, to have a breakout season this year.
Around the NHL:
St. Louis Today: Langenbrunner finds new home, new role with Blues. Hard working player that the Blues are hoping will use his veteran leadership to help develop their younger players.
Edmonton Journal: Magnus Paajarvi jumped the pond in a single bound in 2010-11. Should be exciting for Oilers fans to watch this young gun as he continues to develop this season.
Patriot-Ledger: Fenway Park to host Hockey East double header. While the outdoor game is becoming a bit more commonplace than it was when the Cold War between Michigan State University and the University of Michigan back in 2001 began the practice of outdoor games, to play at Fenway is a very cool venue.
