JETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jets prospect Josh Morrissey is a seasoned rookie after playing 112 games last season

One hundred and twelve — 112! — hockey games in a single season. Most guys couldn’t even watch that many from their La-Z-Boy recliner without their wife leaving. Add ‘em up, though, and that’s exactly how many times Calgary-born blue-liner Josh Morrissey laced up his blades for game action during the 2013-14 campaign — a tally that includes pre-season skates with the...

2014-15 Winnipeg Jets Preview: Jacob Trouba, Mark Scheifele Provide Optimism

The 2013-14 NHL season was the first for the Winnipeg Jets as members of the Western Conference, and it didn’t go very well with an 11th place finish. The Jets moved back to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season after relocating from Atlanta and haven’t made the playoffs over the last three seasons. Fan support remains strong, but the team has to show some progress sooner or later...

The Winnipeg Jets aren't sure how to use their most valuable tool

When Dustin Byfuglien was drafted into the NHL, it was as a defenseman. Then Chicago made him a forward, except when they needed an extra D-man. Then the Thrashers/Jets picked him up, and he played D, then forward, then D, then forward. As it stands, he’s heading into next year as a forward. This is a unique situation to be in with a player; basically only the San Jose Sharks...

Winnipeg Sun: Blake Wheeler is a leader and wants Evander Kane to join him

#481763057 / gettyimages.comIt interesting to see how this turns out during training camp. I suppose the fans shouldn't look too deeply into this. I would imagine that Wheeler and Kane will be "fine" during the season. Ted Wyman, Winnipeg Sun -- Evander Kane needs to step up his game and be a leader. Good for Wheeler. This is a player who has developed into leader...

Those Joking Jets

from the CP at TSN, Teammate Blake Wheeler suggested today a little good-natured banter on Twitter has turned into another excuse to pile on Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane, after Kane responded to Wheeler's comments the talented young forward could step up his play and be a leader this season for the Jets.

Things still uneasy for Evander Kane, Winnipeg Jets

They may not have to deal with insane, dysfunctional scenarios like ownership trying to sell the team to three different parties secretly, but things are far from great for the Winnipeg Jets. There had been speculation for a long, long while about whether or not Evander Kane was a part of Winnipeg’s future. Sure, he’s signed through the 2017-18 season, but after the constant...

Trouba Needs to be in Running for Calder

If there is one thing I know that will monumentally disappoint me this season with the Winnipeg Jets – other than the fact that we are stuck in .500 purgatory – is that Jacob Trouba will somehow be overlooked in the race for the Calder Trophy. Through 16 games this season, the Jets rookie defenseman has made good decisions and some bad ones, but has always made the Jets a better...

How Much Mark Scheifele Means to the Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets latest six game pointless streak really came at an inconvenient time. Thanks, Captain Obvious. It isn't any secret though why it happened when it did. On March 4th, rookie Mark Scheifele – the face of the franchise – went down due to an injury and that 3-2 loss at the hand of the Islanders that night began a six game pointless streak that lasted until...
