Winnipeg Jets Morning Papers

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

Note II: Jets Development Camp concludes today at hockey for all centre. Check out the full roster and schedule here.

Jets news:

Winnipeg Sun: Max Namestnikov trying to follow in family’s footsteps. Gotta be fun for the young kid from Michigan to get a chance to play for the same organization as his older brother.

Winnipeg Free Press: Jets prospect Brown looking forward following freak injury. (Paywall). His Denver team was able to win the NCAA championship but sadly the Jets prospect was watching from the sidelines due to a season ending injury. Mike caught up with him at Development Camp. Zhilkin looking to build on first pro season. He may be wearing yellow at the camp but he sure doesn’t look like a player that needs to be based on how he’s moving out there. But at the same time it makes sense not to risk any setbacks at Development Camp. Expecting a big season out of the 2022 3rd rounder.

We spoke with him today following day 3 on the ice of Development Camp about being picked by Winnipeg, his close friend and fellow Winnipeg selection Kevin He (4th round) being part of the organization and much more.

Illegal Curve Hockey: Chat with Markus Loponen. With the 155th overall selection the Jets went to Finland to grab Markus Loponen in the 5th round of the 2024 Draft in Vegas.
