Brenden Kitchton led the Moose in scoring last season and will be bringing his talents back to Winnipeg for at least one more year.

With the departure of former Manitba captain John Albert to Finland next season, I had Brenden Kitchton as one possible replacement as captain of the Moose.  With his signing we shall see if that is the next move for this organization.

Jets Release:

The Winnipeg Jets announced they have agreed to terms with defenceman Brenden Kichton on a one-year, two-way contract worth an average annual value of $600,000 in the NHL.

Kichton, 24, led the Manitoba Moose in scoring last season with 41 points (11G, 30A) in 68 games. Kichton was called up twice by the Winnipeg Jets last season but did not see any game action. Kichton has played three professional seasons after being drafted by the Jets in the seventh round, 190th overall in 2013. Over his AHL career, the native of Spruce Grove, Alta., has 118 points (29G, 89A) in 209 games.

Expect an "official" announcement tonight during the broadcast but the new play by play voice of the Jets will be Dan Robertson.

Puck drop from Edmonton will be in one hour.

We had @ICdave down at the IcePlex covering day 4 of Jets training camp.

He got some injury updates from head coach Rick Bowness on Brad Lambert, Wyatt Bongiovanni, and Morgan Barron.

Still a few hours to go before the Jets pre-season game gets under in Edmonton which gives you lots of time to check out yesterday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show.
