Kevin Cheveldayoff finally did something! The Jets GM, in the midst of an incredibly bruised blueline, acquired depth defender Jay Harrison from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2015 6th round pick.

Harrison is a quality NHL defender, and with the recent injuries to Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba, joining Tobias Enstrom and Zach Bogosian on the sidelines, it was a move that needed to be made.

Harrison has a connection to head coach Paul Maurice, as he coached him as a Toronto Maple Leaf and during his second tenure with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Jets play the Detroit Red Wings on Valentine's day this year. It will be a very special Valentine's, as it might be the next time the Jets have a healthy blue line. 

With Enstrom out since November 23rd, Bogosian since December 3rd, and Trouba in the infirmary until February, news hit today that Mark Stuart will join his defence partner for 6-10 weeks with a lower-body injury. 

Inside we'll look at who the Jets have to play against Boston tomorrow, and who we might see over the next few weeks.

The Jets enter week 11 having snapped their streak of earning points in 8 straight games but still hanging onto 8th place in the West.

Inside we’ll look at the week to come.

Trouba out. Big trouble for the Jets?

Today is a tough day in the “Heart of Canada” as the depth of the Winnipeg Jets defence just got a little bit thinner, and the end of the tunnel is nowhere in site.

It was announced this morning that Jacob Trouba joins the long list of injured Jets rearguards and is expected to be out until February with an upper-body injury. This is terrible news for a team like the Jets seeing as they are already missing two of their best defencemen, (Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian,) for at least the remainder of the month.
