Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

Jets hit the ice before taking off for California.

For the second straight week the Jets returned home to play a single game in Winnipeg before taking off for a road trip. Last night they did battle with the Coyotes which saw them take it 2-1 over Arizona.

Only real question mark is Dylan Samberg who blocked a shot in morning skate and didn’t play last night.

Skate news:

As per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun not skating today was goalie Connor Hellebuyck but Dylan Samberg did take part. The lines and D pairs below are via Scott.
