Note: Happy Halloween from the IC Crew to you. Big thanks to Dov Secter, who isn’t just a great architect, but also a pretty good pumpkin carver.
Winnipeg Free Press: A look under the hood. Ed reflects on the road trip and looks ahead as well. Covers power-play, face-off circle, offensive help, PK, Wheeler & Little heating up, Bogo injury?, Lowry up?, more starts for Montoya, Scheifele down, Trouba need and a final assessment.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets’ good, bad & ugly. While the end results were not ideal, the Jets played pretty well during the four game in six night road trip. He takes a look at the good, bad and ugly of the road adventures.
Winnipeg Sun: Power-play icebreaker just what the Jets ordered. While it was nice to see the team get a special teams goal, it is still important to realize that was on a 5 on 3. The Jets remain1/31 with the man ‘advantage’ and the streak won’t quite be broken until the guys can score 5 on 4. Ted also looks at the play of Devin Setoguchi who has to go back to junior hockey to recall last time he was on the point.

Illegal Curve: Enstrom turns down chance to play for Sweden at Olympics. Interesting to read reports that the dynamic defenceman would prefer to stay and focus on his commitment to the Jets.
