Jets Lipon & Kichton Want to Make Immediate Impact

    Positive vibes are coming out of MTS Centre lately and the latest two signings should have Jets fans excited for the future. Not the future as in the 2013-14 season, mind you, but possibly for 2014-15 and beyond. Two of their later round draft picks – JC Lipon (third round) and Brenden Kichton…

Sneak Peak of 2013 Winnipeg Jets

With the NHL back and the Winnipeg Jets about to reconvene at and take over the MTS Centre this winter, the team we saw leave the ice last April will have some additions, subtractions, and some new faces that are rookie fresh.   Since we haven’t had any Jets news for nearly four months, let’s…

Jets Prospects Show Talents For Team Canada

    If there is one thing a hockey franchise wants to see is, it would be how draft picks are making an impact on the ice elsewhere.   Mark Scheifele and Luke Sutter both made a big impact during the now finished Canada-Russia Challenge over the last week.

Jets Brass Smart To Stay Away From July 1 Madness

    For Jets fans on Twitter throughout Canada Day and, to a lesser extent depending who you are, Free Agent Frenzy, there was much to do about why the Jets were not signing players and, in essence, losing more players to other teams than signing more. In a day that saw a number of…

Jets Win Big With First Pick Trouba

    When the International Scouting Service handed out their May 30th, 2012 rankings, Rochester, Minnesota native Jacob Trouba was ranked fifth ahead of the likes of Matt Dumba, Rielly Morgan, and Griffin Reinhart. However, Central Scouting ranked him ninth behind those same defensemen. Whatever the ranking, the Jets have won big with selecting the…

Sorting Out Jets 2012 Unrestricted Free Agents

    Who should stay and who should go? NHL free agency is a trying to time for any club that can give an NHL General Manager enough stress to see a few more grey hairs appear year after year. Hopefully, in the case of Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff, his mane of brown hair still…

Winnipeg Jets Off Seasons Needs & Wants Part 1

As a former Canadiens fan of the late 1990s and early 200s, I know what early April usually brings – watching other teams play in the playoffs instead of my favourites playing themselves. Now as a newly converted Jets fan this season, the whole rigamarole starts over again (although the Habs did finish worse than…

Young Jets Finding Stride & Consistency

  With his 15th goal on the season last night, Blake Wheeler extended his career point total to 54 – good enough to tie him for 33rd in league scoring. Maybe it’s not that significant that Wheeler is 33rd in the league, but the fact that he is tied with the likes of Corey Perry…

Jets Doing Things The Chevy Way

    For Jets General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff, taking time to perfect something is the essence of his managing style. The former 16th overall draft pick in 1988 has had time to grow and learn in the game – not only by playing the game on ice level, but by watching, learning, and being a…

Division Lead In Sight, But Not So Fast

    Winnipeg Jets fans are in the midst of something that has happened to the majority of Canadian NHL teams in the past 20 years – they’re in the middle of a playoff run that has as much possibility of the team making the playoffs as it does them not making the post season….

Jets Trade Deadline Wishlist: Goal Scorers Please

  Sunday night’s 3-0 shutout loss to the Montreal Canadiens was, again, another prime exhibit of the problem that plagues the Winnipeg Jets this season: scoring goals. It’s been obvious for a while that the Jets have troubles finding the back of the net.

Jets Use Urgency To Fuel Win In Philly

     Bryan Little’s goal in the third round of the shootout Tuesday night capped off a hard earned two point night on the road for the Winnipeg Jets.   Not only was it a hard earned point in a building other than MTS Centre – which has been the achilles heel of the team…
