Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

The Jets hit the ice for the first skate after All-Star break.

The Jets haven’t played a game since they defeated the Blues 4-2 back on Monday, January 30th. They haven’t had a practice since the 27th of last month. After 10 days off the ice they resume practice today and tomorrow as they get set to face the Hawks in Winnipeg to begin a two game homestand.

Skate news:

Time usually heals all wounds and that appears to be the case for Mason Appleton who is back in a regular uniform for the Jets as per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun. However that may not be the case for injured duo Dylan DeMelo and David Gustafsson as he indicated they are not skating. The lines and D pairs below courtesy of Scott.
