The Jets take to the ice following their 6-3 defeat at “home” last night.
As per Jason Bell of the Winnipeg Free Press some familiar faces on the ice ahead of practice in yellow, non-contact jerseys including Bryan Little, Andrew Copp and Dmitry Kulikov.
Jason indicates the only guys missing from today’s practice are Blake Wheeler, Mathieu Perreault and Luca Sbisa.
Coach Maurice: Status of players wearing yellow, non-contact jerseys. What stands out from last night? Assessing the Jets at the halfway point. Concern with the latest stretch the Jets have been on. The save percentage dropping and whether they have to adapt. The penalty kill conundrum. Where is Sami Niku in his level of preparedness? Laine back to being a big shooter. Was it way too open a game?

Jets bench boss Paul Maurice has indicated Bryan Little is still listed as indefinite. Both Andrew Copp and Dmitry Kulikov are possible for this road trip. His full assessment is here. He also indicated the three guys who didn’t skate today (Blake Wheeler, Mathieu Perreault and Luca Sbisa) were simply due to maintenance.
The first road trip of 2020 begins tomorrow in St. Paul, Minnesota with a 1 pm afternoon game. Be sure to keep it locked to illegalcurve.com for the AM Papers which go live at 7 AM. You can also tune in for an early edition of the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg which starts at 7 AM.
