Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

A report of the Jets practice at the Dr. Pepper StarCenter.

The Jets are in Texas today at the Dr. Pepper Star Center to practice ahead of their game Thursday night against the Dallas Stars.  As per Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun just a couple of Jets missing today including Blake Wheeler and Tobias Enstrom while Mathieu Perreault and Drew Stafford are fully participating.

Here are the line rushes and D pairs via Ken:

Copp-Scheifele-Perreault (Wheeler)

Melchiori (Enstrom)-Trouba,

All three goalies on the ice. Stafford worked in with Scheifele.


Jacob Trouba:  Has he improved a lot in the last little while?  Is it mental?  Was there a moment where it “clicked” for him?  Does he feel like something “special” is happening?  Who has helped him most in his development?  “Takes a village to raise a child”?

Coach Maurice:  On why Bryan Little works with Laine and Ehlers.  Importance of getting the guys onto the ice today.  Can he expand on why the goalies have given them “confidence of late”?  Are there more subtle changes to Trouba’s game to account for his improvements?  Correlation between offensive outbursts and confidence in goaltending?  Looking at goalie stats.
