Wpg Jets Signing News: Jets come to terms with centre Ivan Telegin who played for the OHL’s Saginaw Spirit. He was drafted by the Thrashers in the 4th round (101st overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Toronto Star: A Jet by any other name…. Exactly, it’s just art. Doesn’t need to fit an exact type.
Winnipeg Free Press: Defence minister likes Jets logo. Add another fan to the ever growing list of people who are quite happy with the new Winnipeg logo.
National Post: Jets have a lot more to do in reboot. The Down Goes Brown crew injects some laughs into your morning news.
• Send lawyers down to Phoenix to meet with the Coyotes and determine once and for all which franchise ends up with legal custody of Luciano Borsato.
• Remind other GMs that while Winnipeg fans are deeply nostalgic for former Jets stars and would love to see one suit up for the new version of the team, that’s pretty much limited to Teemu Selanne and Shane Doan … so the Oilers can stop with the hourly Nikolai Khabibulin trade offers.
The Telegram: St. John’s to reveal name, logo this week. Lots doing with the Jets AHL affiliate. Much like the parent club, the Ice Caps (as they are expected to be called) have done a fantastic job in selling all available season tickets (4700).
More Jets news including jersey pre-ordering, how the new logo is growing on people and from ‘Around the NHL’ we get more Kris Draper retirement talk, Commish Bettman’s salary, Sharks coaching staff staying same and apparently it is always sunny in Philadelphia after the jump.
Winnipeg Sun: Jets jerseys pre-order available. Kinda crazy that you will have to wait until October 1st to receive your new Jets jersey. It wouldn’t be such a hardship, if we only had some indication as to what the new jerseys look like.
Winnipeg Sun: New Jets logo grows on you. I’ve spoken with a number of people who initially weren’t fans of the logo, but as time has passed, they’ve come around to it.
Around the NHL:
Detroit News: Wings’ Kris Draper expected to announce retirement today. If only the Jets could have seen into the future. That is quite a laundry list of achievements.
San Jose Mercury News: Sharks head coach Todd McLellan sticking with his coaching team. With the new players joining the squad, perhaps they wanted to keep part of the team stable.
MSNBC: Gary Bettman received $7.5 million for the 2009/10 season. When comparing him to the other Pro sports commish’s his salary doesn’t seem exorbitant, but he does make more than the next 5 NHL officials combined.
Philadelphia Inquirer: Partying prompted parting? You have to think if this accusation is true and these guys love to party, that Jeff Carter got the short end of the stick (no slight to Columbus, but it doesn’t have quite the same party scene as L.A.).
