Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note: The Jets picked up another win against a Central division team last night as they defeated the Blues 4-2 which vaulted them into 1st place in the Central at they tied the Stars (who lost on Tuesday to the Avs) at 79 points but Winnipeg has four games in hand. Which sets up a fun next game on Thursday when the Jets kick off three-games on the road starting in Dallas. They’ve turned today into a travel day so no practice and instead the team will head directly to Texas.

Note II: Reminder to join us tomorrow for a live broadcast of the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show after the Jets and Stars game at Boston Pizza Grant Park located at 1160 Taylor Avenue.

Note III: The Moose took Tuesday off. They are back on the ice today for practice as they get set to take on Stars this weekend. Stay tuned for a Practice Report.

Note IV: Rather than conflate the normal Jets links with ones pertaining to yesterday’s visit by Gary Bettman and Bill Daly, I’ve created a separate post with all the links regarding yesterday’s visit.
