Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets are in offseason mode but is there really ever an offseason? If there is any news we will have it for you here like yesterday when Connor Hellebuyck was named a Vezina Finalist. And of course the Illegal Curve Hockey Show runs until the end of July so be sure you’re a subscriber and join us every Saturday morning at 9 AM.

Note II: The Moose are also now in offseason mode. We did almost 20 interviews on Monday to conclude the Moose season. Lots of good stuff from Jets prospects (Heinola, Torgersson, Nikkanen, Lundmark). The team will release the content over the next week or so. To date they’ve released Jimmy Oligny (watch here), head coach Mark Morrison (watch here), Evan Polei/Cole Maier (watch here), Dominic Toninato (watch here), Oskari Salminen (watch here), Ashton Sautner (watch here) and Ville Heinola (watch here). And we will wrap up the season next week with an end of season Moose recap show.

Note III: The Ice will take on Brad Lambert (Jets 2022 1st rounder) and his Seattle Thunderbirds tonight in Winnipeg for game 1 of the WHL Championship. Puck drop is at 7 PM CDT.

In addition to trying to answer that question Wieber looks at potential front runners for Pierre-Luc Dubois, the ability of Nikolaj Ehlers to stay healthy, success of Paul Maurice as a lesson, Jets effort to acquire Jakob Chychrun, fitting D prospects up with big club and more.
