Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

After a tough regulation loss the Jets are back on the ice for practice getting ready for the re-match.

Coming off a disappointing loss last night to the Leafs the Jets are practicing today in Winnipeg as they look to get back on track ahead of their re-match on Saturday night.

Transaction Report:

The Jets made a goalie swap between the Moose and taxi squad as they reassigned Eric Comrie to their AHL squad and brought Mikhail Berdin up to the taxi squad.  Suspect this is to keep Comrie in game shape considering he has only played two games (one AHL, one NHL) this season.

Skate news:

As per Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet no Adam Lowry today after the Jets third line centre didn’t return to the game in the 2nd period after he was caught with a hit to the head at the end of the 1st period.  Without Lowry here are the lines being run at today’s skate according to Ken.  We will have to wait to hear from Jets head coach Paul Maurice if he has an update following skate.

Health update:

Bench boss Paul Maurice didn’t have much on Adam Lowry saying “He’s still going through testing and I’ll have a better idea tomorrow”.
