A second day of practice scheduled for the Jets as they prepare to face the Predators here in Winnipeg on Tuesday night. Today they will actually hit the ice whereas yesterday they simply held a media availability.
According to Mitchell Clinton of Jets TV all healthy players taking part in today’s practice including Nathan Beaulieu in a regular uniform. Bryan Little is wearing his non-contact jersey still. Mitch also provides the lines and D pairs below.
Lines & D Pairs:
Coach Maurice: Update on Nathan Beaulieu? What has the team done well defensively the last few games? The team being more engaged. Failure as a teacher/motivator/reset button and how it could apply to the Jets. On teams being stronger after dealing with difficulty. What did he see from the Pionk and Morrissey pairing? What can Sami Niku do to improve on the physical side of things?

Of course the big news of the day wasn’t anything related to practice. TSN’s Frank Seravalli reported that the Jets and Dustin Byfuglien are working towards mutual contract termination.
