Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets looked like they were gonna be big winners in Vegas after 20 minutes of play in game 2 but hockey games are 60 minute affairs and eventually the top seeded Golden Knights got going and took over control of the game. They would dominate for most of the final 40 taking game 2 by a final score of 5-2 to even the series 1-1. The team returns back to Winnipeg today and are off.

Note II: The Moose were off on Thursday as they continue to rest up ahead of their playoff series with the Admirals. They are scheduled to practice today.

Note III: The Ice are back in Winnipeg after they earned themselves a split in Moose Jaw courtesy of an OT winner in game 4. They will prepare for game 5 which goes tomorrow night.

Note IV: Last night in the OHL Jets 2022 7th rounder Domenic DiVincentiis and his North Bay Battalion won in double OT to even their series 2-2. Jets 2022 3rd rounder Danny Zhilkin and his Kitchener Rangers are out, losing in 5 games to London. Perhaps the next place we see him is with Moose garb.
