Report: Jets the preferred destination for Manitoba-born Hamonic, but ‘loath’ to give up Myers, Trouba in trade

Photo Credit: Ed Mulholland/USA TODAY Sports If you had to pick one position at which the Winnipeg Jets are pretty much set, you’d probably choose right-handed shooting defensemen. In Dustin Byfuglien, Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers, the Jets have some excellent right-handed shooting blue-line pieces. Even if Byfuglien leaves in free agency, with Myers signed through…

Nikolaj Ehlers hit with illegal check to the head by Canucks’ Sbisa; briefly leaves game

Photo Credit: Bruce Fedyck/USA TODAY Sports The Winnipeg Jets are struggling, and can’t afford to lose arguably their single most dynamic offensive threat.

How the Jets can turn Jacob Trouba’s slow start to their advantage

Photo Credit: Brad Rempel/USA TODAY Sports Young Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba hasn’t looked like himself. Trouba, 21, has just three points in 18 games for Winnipeg. He’s often looked a bit lost defensively. He hasn’t found chemistry with Tyler Myers, which has sort of thrown Winnipeg’s ideal top-four into chaos. And Trouba’s ice time is down…

Jets’ Ladd fires back at Kane: ‘We’ve moved on and maybe he should too’

Photo Credit: Kirby Lee/USA TODAY Sports On the subject of Evander Kane, the Winnipeg Jets aren’t mad. It’s so funny that you’d think that. Indeed they’re actually laughing right now at the idea, that’s how silly it is to imagine that they’ve ever even once been mad online. In reaction to some of Kane’s pointed quotes to Ken Campbell of the Hockey…

Jets’ Burmistrov fined the maximum for elbowing Wild’s Spurgeon

Though Dustin Byfuglien’s vicious boarding hit on Jason Pominville was more widely shared and discussed following Sunday night’s fast paced and physical game between the Winnipeg Jets and the MInnesota Wild, it was another iffy sequence that earned the ire of the NHL Department of Player Safety. In the second period of Sunday night’s game Jets…

Byfuglien boards Pominville; could Player Safety Dept. be calling?

Late in Sunday night’s entertaining and impressive 5-4 Winnipeg Jets victory over their division rival the Minnesota Wild, Dustin Byfuglien drove a prone Jason Pominville into the boards. The hit resulted in Pominville skating woozily to the bench, as Byfuglien was assessed a minor for boarding and escorted into the penalty box. Could Byfuglien be hearing from…

GIF: Trouba, Jets burned by Jason Zucker just 10 seconds into game vs. Wild

Photo Courtesy: Brace Hemmelgarn/USA TODAY Sports Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker is a tremendously fast skater and he also has a quick release. He does pretty much everything at warp speed. The Winnipeg Jets found that out the hard way on Sunday evening, when Zucker pounced promptly on a loose puck in the neutral zone off of the…
