Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

Keeping you up-to-date with all the latest pro hockey news in Manitoba.

Note: The Jets were off Sunday as they are currently on their Player Break but the organization did make some news placing defenceman Declan Chisholm on waivers. Personally I don’t think he clears as I think an NHL team gives the smooth-skating Dman a shot. Stay tuned for the announcement at 1 PM CST. (Update: He was claimed by Minnesota).

Note II: The Moose have flipped the script turning their losing streak into the start of a winning one after they picked up their second straight victory on Sunday afternoon. They outshot the Wolves 13-3 in the opening period but found themselves down 1-0 after 20 minutes. They got the game tying goal courtesy of the pride of Portage la Prairie Dean Stewart (see here) and then Kyle Capobianco did what he seems to do once or twice per game (although it doesn’t always result in a goal). This time it did and it turned out to be the game-winning goal for Manitoba and his 30th point (7G 23A) of the season which gives him the team lead in points. Jets goalie prospect Thomas Milic made 18 saves in the victory. Given how things have gone late in games for Manitoba I really liked the way they protected the lead against the 6 on 5 to end the hockey game. Lots of poise. They are off today.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Mark Scheifele’s importance, impact evident in absence. I had a similar sentiment on the IC Post-Game Show following the Jets/Leafs game as it has been quite notable what has been ailing this Winnipeg club without number 55. It also shows how the team needs to augment the group by adding a capable 2C.
