Winnipeg Jets Skills Competition recap (with video)

The Jets put their skills to the test.

If you weren’t able to make it down to Canada Life Centre last night to watch the Jets Skills Competition fear not as you can get fully caught up on all the events with the team having posted video clips.  This was the first time the team has hosted the event since the 2019-20 season. And this year they added former IC intern, current Bardown/TSN maverick and Winnipegger Jesse Pollock to the fold to participate.

It was another event which allowed fans to connect with the players on this team in a more substantial and on a more personal level, one that has been lacking due to the last few years of covid protocols.
