Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets dealt with the news that Nikolaj Ehlers was still not medically cleared to play in game 3 and then lost Josh Morrissey after he played just 1:14 of the 1st period. Despite the above and falling behind 4-1 heading into the final frame, the Jets put on a 3rd period clinic as they fought their way to push for OT before they lost in double OT. They are currently scheduled to practice this morning although it’s possible they cancel given the game went so much longer than expected. If they hold a practice stay tuned for the Practice Report.

Note II: After two straight days of practice the Moose are off today.

Note III: Connor Geekie had a hat trick (including scoring the game-winning goal) as the Ice defeated the Warriors 5-2 in game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. Game 6 goes Monday in Moose Jaw.

Jets news:

Sportsnet: Jets in big hole after Morrissey’s series-ending injury, double-OT loss. While the other D stepping up without 44 present, it certainly makes for a much more difficult to a path for success. 

Winnipeg Sun: Jets hold sense of optimism after Game 3 loss. As they should. They could have folded their tents and gone home down 4-1 in the final frame but they pushed back and forced OT and then a double OT that could have gone either way.. 

Winnipeg Sun: Brenden Dillon … the burning question … hero/goat of the game. Ted’s player spotlight is Brenden Dillon. He also looks at one burning question (Can Jets build off comeback) and his hero of the game was Neal Pionk.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets Pionk ‘looking for new set of legs’ after playing big minutes in double overtime loss. You knew when Morrissey went out early in the game that one of the Jets Dmen was going to get the call to play the lion’s share of minutes and Neal Pionk took those minutes and skated with it.

Winnipeg Sun: Stomach-turning defeat ruins Jets comeback against Vegas Golden Knights. That was a gut punch for the players and fans alike. Hard to fight back like that only to lose the game in that manner. 

Winnipeg Sun: Jets fans bring downtown to life with Whiteout Street Parties. Despite the fact that I was inside for the game you could sense the energy of the crowd on Donald Street every time they were shown on the jumbotron.
