Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

A report of the Jets skate at the IcePlex.


While fans are still basking in the success of a fun filled Heritage Classic weekend, the Jets are dealing with the reality of a 3-0 loss yesterday to the Oilers that saw them move to 2-3-0 on the season.  They were back on the ice at the IcePlex today for a practice before they left for Dallas.

Post-skate player audio:

Blake Wheeler:  Getting back to routine.  Losing game, but still relishing a big weekend for Winnipeg.  Importance of the upcoming games.

Tyler Myers:  Improving the team’s record in the division.  Three of next nine are against Stars, like the mini-playoff feel of that?  Limiting errors that lead to goals.

Post-skate coach audio:

Paul Maurice:  How was it different following that loss after you factor in the entire weekend?  Good to get your club back into it with three Central division games?  A look ahead to this week’s games.  Importance to see how this team responds this week?  How does he approach a marathon stretch like the Jets have upcoming?  Good opportunity for the team to gel?  Contemplating moves or is it too small a sample size?  AHL call ups?  Does he worry about a Heritage Classic hangover?  Working on the power play, is it too soon to panic?  No exact science to the PP?  Goals coming in bunches against, is that a function of youth?

After 20 minutes of play in Edmonton the Jets find themselves down 1-0 to the Oilers.

But the big news was that Dan Robertson is now "officially" the new play by play voice of Winnipeg on TSN.

What are your initial thoughts?

The Jets lines to kick off game 1 of the pre-season against the Oilers:

Perfetti - Dubois - Reichel
