Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

After a day off on Saturday the Jets hit the ice for a practice to prepare for the Penguins tomorrow.

The Jets were off on Saturday following their two-game road trip out west. The big question mark ahead of skate is the status of Paul Stastny who didn’t go with the team on the road as he continues to recover from a foot injury suffered on November 6th when he took a friendly fire shot.
