Fresh off a big 6-3 win over the Habs last night, which was their third straight victory, the Jets hit the ice today for an optional practice as they get set for tomorrow’s re-match with Montreal.
Most practices going forward will be optional and today is no exception. As per Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV here is what he saw on the ice today in Winnipeg:
17 skaters for Jets practice. Hellebuyck and Brossoit on the ice as well. No Scheifele, Wheeler, Dubois, Ehlers, Thompson, Copp, Stastny, or Perreault.
1. Reflections on the play of Sami Niku.
2. What nuances from the game of Pierre-Luc Dubois has he noticed?
3. State of the North Division.
4. Mark Scheifele’s game.
5. What will it take for Dylan DeMelo to carve out a bigger role for himself this year?
6. Status of Tucker Poolman?
The Jets will conclude this two game series with the Habs tomorrow night. Be sure to keep it locked to illegalcurve.com for the AM Papers which go live at 7 AM CT and the Illegal Curve Hockey Show at 9 AM CT.
