Coach Maurice:  What is the status of Nathan Beaulieu?  On calling out a player (i.e. Jack Roslovic).  On a player getting a chance to redeem himself during a game.  On Josh Morrissey being -12.  Is Josh Morrissey overburdened?  On an injury (i.e. what happened to Scott Sabourin) occurring during a game.  On what the wins represents to his club.  Update on Tucker Poolman?  On Laine on the 2nd power play unit.  Does it connect to the next 5 on 5 shift?

Health Updates:

Coach Maurice was asked about the status of Nathan Beaulieu and if he was ready to play tomorrow “Ya, I believe he will be based on today but we’ll have to check on that tomorrow just to make sure nothing changes.  But he got through practice today, felt strong, felt right, wanted a full practice, you know kind of coming off a non-skating day that he could get pushed so we did a little bit of grinding and he felt pretty good.”.  Regarding Tucker Poolman who didn’t play after the 1st period against Vegas on Saturday Jets bench boss indicated “Day-to-day.  So there’s no mechanism of injury.  Just wasn’t feeling right after the 1st period.  So we’re holding him off and gonna get a bunch of tests on him.”.

Up Next:

The Jets will kick off this homestand with a game against the Devils tomorrow night.  Be sure to keep it locked to for the AM Papers which go live at 7 AM.

After a day off today the Jets are all back on the ice tomorrow.

Some players will be taking part in the first home pre-season game against the Senators while there are two skate times for the non-game groups.

We will have it all covered on

Can only keep a Winnipegger away from Manitoba for so long before the pull to come home gets you.
