Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets and Moose are all in offseason mode but is there really ever an offseason? If there is any news we will have it for you here.

Note II: The next big event on the NHL calendar will be the Entry Draft in Nashville which gets underway tomorrow (1st round) and Thursday (rounds 2-7). Remember to join us for live IC coverage on our YouTube channel of the first round of the Draft on Wednesday night at 6 PM CDT.

Note III: Remember when you were young and a parent told you ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it’. With that in mind the NHL Awards were last night. I really just turned it on just before the Vezina was awarded and then turned it off immediately after. Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck ended up in 3rd place in voting for top netminder in the NHL.

Update: Darren Dreger indicated this AM that Pierre-Luc Dubois prefers the L.A. option.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Habs back in the picture as Jets, Kings stall on Pierre-Luc Dubois. The line Friedman recounted the other day that was told to him by former NBA star turned executive Isiah Thomas about how everyone lies during the Draft reinforces that so much of what you read, hear or watch needs to be taken with a heavy dose of skepticism. Everyone has an agenda and often the truth isn’t high on that priority list.

TSN Insider Trading: Dreger with the latest about the Jets (Dubois, Hellebuyck & Scheifele). Amazing what 12 hours (or so) can do as on Monday morning he said the news (from Sunday night) on Hellebuyck and Scheifele was quiet to things starting to “simmer” by the evening in Nashville with all the GMs in the same city. 

Sportsnet: What does Pierre-Luc Dubois have to offer to his next prospective team? Adam looks at what a new team would be getting in the big centre.

Global News: Busy off-season for Jets to ramp up by Wednesday’s draft. I suspect, and maybe I am in the minority, that only one of the four is dealt by the time the Draft concludes on Thursday. What say you?

Sportsnet: Jets’ Connor Hellebuyck talks Dubois, trade rumours and quest for the Cup. Some interesting comments from number 37 in this chat from Nashville.
