Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Your source for all the latest hockey news in Manitoba.

Note: For the first time in years Jets prospects will be heading to Winnipeg for Development Camp. A really good crop of prospects for fans to check out starting on Wednesday. Check out the full list of players attending and skate times here.

Note II: While Sunday wasn’t as busy as Saturday there was still some action for the Jets who got the day started with news that they had traded disgruntled defenceman Leon Gawanke (2017 5th) for Artemi Kniasev (2019 2nd). Kniasev is two years younger and has another season of waiver eligibility. Additionally, I reported that Moose leading scorer Alex Limoges is heading to the Washington Capitals organization for next season.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press: A blockbuster week in 2.0 history. (Paywall). It was not a particularly quiet week in ‘Peg City with lots of moving parts and I would agree with Mike’s assessment that fiuring out the D core is going to be fascinating.

Sportsnet: Brossoit comes aboard, but ‘evolving’ Jets stay quiet on opening day of free agency. One of the things Kevin Cheveldayoff spoke about was the opportunity for Hellebuyck and Brossoit to renew their tandem. (This was from yesterday but for some inexplicable reason I left out the hyperlink).
