Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

After a day off the Jets practice for their final game of this seven-game homestand.

The Jets were off on Sunday and are back on the ice today as they prepare themselves for their final game of this seven-game homestand. The only real question mark ahead of practice is the status of Paul Stastny. The veteran forward hasn’t played since he took some friendly fire in the game against the Islanders back on November 6th.
