Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

A second straight day of practice as the Jets look to get back on track.

The Jets did some flip-flopping of their forwards yesterday in practice with Andrew Copp moving to the third line and Evgeny Svechnikov moving up a line with Pierre-Luc Dubois and Kyle Connor.

Recall news:

To nobody’s surprise the Jets recalled 2018 2nd rounder David Gustafsson now that he has been cleared (Moose were dealing with a covid situation which was contained to one player).

Skate news:

As per Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet the only change from yesterday is Gustafsson slides into the 4th line centre role with Harkins moving to the wing.
