Note: As September rolls around and all this month we wanted to bring to your attention the Pass it Forward program which provides help to youth in Winnipeg who wish to play hockey but require aid in getting the necessary equipment. The program is in it’s 5th year, they have a website, an active twitter feed @PassItForwardca, and they are giving away a autographed game used stick. Be sure to check it out.
Winnipeg Free Press: Best NHL draft picks have a certain intangible. While many think there is a magic formula to drafting a star sometimes it comes down to a little luck. Fans will get to see how the Jets prospects stack up as they get ready for the Canucks Young Stars Tournament.
Winnipeg Free Press: 2013 Penticton Roster. If you are curious which players will be heading to B.C. here is the list of prospects.
Winnipeg Sun: Newcomer Devin Setoguchi says Winnipeg feels like a hockey home. Impressive that Setoguchi was aware of the history and respected the tradition of the Jets 1.o.
Winnipeg Sun: Olli Jokinen says he has four or five big seasons left. I have a feeling that we will be seeing a bounce back season from the Finnish centre.
Winnipeg Sun: Evander Kane eager to get going. Jets fans will be happy to hear that he is back feeling good and is ready to get going on the 2013-14 season.
Illegal Curve: Jets hire Mike Keane as Player Development Assistant. Will work with Jimmy Roy, Coordinator of Player Development.
Illegal Curve: Audio from the IcePlex. Listen to captain Andrew Ladd, Evander Kane, Devin Setoguchi and Olli Jokinen share their thoughts on the upcoming season.
