Winnipeg Free Press: So much more to life than stopping pucks. One has to appreciate the Jets netminder’s outlook on life after last season’s health scare. Now that his health concerns are behind him, he can be the workhorse the Jets are going to need him to be.
Winnipeg Free Press: Postma, Gregoire go with the floe. Getting some seasoning in the AHL isn’t the end of your career, and it appears that GM Cheveldayoff has plans for these guys.

Winnipeg Sun: Decision on Scheifele looming. This kid is just having a great time with this experience and seems like he will handle any challenge (either Jr. or NHL) with that same gusto.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets’ Bogosian willing to battle it out on front lines. I was one of those doing a double-take in the press box. I leaned over to one of the guys and said “Is that Bogosian as a forward?”. Gotta like the Jets versatility. Hopefully he improves his defensive play under assistant coach Charlie Huddy.
McGill Daily: It’s hockey year in Canada. With the season about to begin, will Winnipeg remain the darlings of Canada, or will the city become another rival to hate?
Globe and Mail: Puck ready to drop on NHL’s season of uncertainty. The NHL might have some black clouds hanging over it, but the citizens of the Province of Manitoba are going to be partying all season long.
