Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets have been eliminated from post-season contention after last night’s 4-1 loss ensured they would be hitting the links as the Golden Knights took the series 4-1 to advance to the second round. The talk post-game was the one minute media availability of Jets bench boss Rick Bowness who didn’t mince words about his group’s effort. We don’t yet know the team’s plans for the end of season media availability but that should be coming in the next few days. Stay tuned.

Note II: The Moose now become the only pro game in town as they are scheduled to kick off their five-game set with the Admirals this evening in Winnipeg when they play in game 1. As we have done all season long we will have complete coverage of the game. If you want to go to game 1 (tonight) or game 2 (Sunday) use this discount code to get there for an affordable rate.

Note III: The Ice will continue their playoffs tonight as they host the Blades after Saskatoon knocked off Red Deer in a series that went the full seven games. Puck drop is at 6:05 CDT.

Jets news:

Global News: After first-round elimination, Jets need to ask tough questions. Plenty of fans have already been asking those questions not really having much faith in this group and that noise is only going to increase based on how this season ended.

Sportsnet: ‘No pushback’: Bowness calls out long-standing issues after Jets knocked out of playoffs. What a way to end the playoffs and begin the offseason.

Winnipeg Sun: End of an error: Jets crap out in Vegas, leave coach ‘disgusted’. It sure seems like that will be the last time you see some core players wearing a Jets uniform.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets goalie’s numbers simply not good enough for the playoffs. If it wasn’t for Connor Hellebuyck this team wasn’t even in the playoffs but he, like the rest of his teammates in the post-season, just didn’t rise to a higher level.

Winnipeg Sun: Why the Jets were the first team eliminated from the NHL playoffs. Feels like watching Survivor and you never want to be the first person eliminated. Always so forgettable.

Winnipeg Sun: Jets embarrassed in Vegas, eliminated from playoffs in five games. Given how well this team played in game one I’d say it was shocking but the Golden Knights adjusted and the Jets didn’t adjust to their adjustments.

Winnipeg Sun: Hard decisions await Jets. What will this team look like to start 2023-24? From top to bottom?
