Jets’ Little not sure if he’ll play again

Bryan Little’s future on the ice is still up in the air. But the Winnipeg Jets centre is more concerned about being able to live a normal life with his wife and daughter.

Next-year country an empty feeling for Jets… Copp craves bigger role… Scheifele challenges young guns on blue line… and some players’ picks for the Cup

He was convinced the Jets were primed for a long playoff drive. Instead, Andrew Copp and his teammates face another empty off-season as 16 other teams vie for the Stanley Cup. Looking back at 2019-20 won’t bring many warm and fuzzies for the five-year veteran. “Nothing overly positive,” Copp said, Tuesday. “Going into the playoffs, […]

Scheifele thankful he’s OK

Mark Scheifele realizes he dodged a bullet. The Winnipeg Jets centre says the moment he went down in the first game of the NHL’s playoff qualifying series he thought the worst. Scheifele took the skate of Calgary’s Matthew Tkachuk to the back of his leg, went down hard into the boards and writhed in pain. […]

Jets lose ping-pong game, turn sights to draft

The Jets went into Part 2 of the NHL’s draft lottery with a one-in-eight chance of scoring big by landing the first overall pick.

Surreal season produces tremendous adversity, hell of a fight from Jets

“Stay in the fight.” The Winnipeg Jets played a particular brand of hockey that, very early on in the 2019-20 season, became an earned badge worn invisibly on each of their jerseys. It became a rallying cry for a team that took more punches than most. It became their identity — a scrappy bunch, severely […]

Jets secure top 10 pick in 2020 draft

The Winnipeg Jets will pick inside the top 10 at the 2020 NHL Draft. The only question that remains now is where.

JETS SNAPSHOTS: Only a few Jets players measured up in playoff loss to Flames and Ehlers was one of them

EDMONTON — There were not a whole lot of positives for the Winnipeg Jets in their best-of-five NHL playoff qualifying round loss to the Calgary Flames. They suffered crushing injuries, resoundingly lost three of the four games and were beaten in every aspect of the series. The Flames had better scoring, better defence, better goaltending, […]

Fate, talent shortage, pandemic make it hard to put bow on Jets’ season

It was unlike any Winnipeg Jets season in hockey history, and so is the job of recapping it. How do you wrap up such a messy story? Not in a neat little box, that’s for sure. Usually you can choose one off the sportswriter’s shelf. They have labels like ‘Not Enough Talent,’ or ‘Too Many […]

Jets continue to go in wrong direction with loss in qualifying round of NHL playoffs

EDMONTON — More than 10 months after it began, the season ended like it started for the Winnipeg Jets — with key players missing and the opposition skating away with a victory.

SNAPSHOTS: Jets believe they have the resilience to come back against Flames

EDMONTON — Born and raised in Winnipeg, Jets centre Cody Eakin has a sense of the city’s overall attitude and toughness, attributes which he believes rub off on his hockey team. The Jets have proven to be a resilient bunch through a 2019-20 regular season that had many pitfalls and they’re going to need to […]

Jets’ penalty killing back in early-season form and it’s killing them

EDMONTON — The Winnipeg Jets hoped to pick up where they left off as NHL hockey resumed after a four-month pause. Instead, they have reverted to the team that struggled mightily early in the 2019-20 season. They’re injury-ravaged, they’re mistake-prone defensively and they have some of the worst penalty-killing in the league. This is not […]

FRIESEN: Jets’ big dogs need to start eating

Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt your regular programming for an urgent announcement. Paging Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor. Would you please report to the Stanley Cup qualifying series immediately. Failure to report will lead to speedy elimination from the proceedings. It’s one of the oldest axioms in hockey, maybe even sports in general. Your big-time […]

JETS SNAPSHOTS: Poolman lucky to have only ‘five golf-ball sized welt’ after blocking shot with his face

EDMONTON — If nothing else, Tucker Poolman will remember the 2019-20 NHL playoffs for the time he blocked a shot at close range with his face and somehow returned to the game. “Tucker was really lucky that he didn’t lose any teeth,” Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice said after his team lost 6-2 to […]

Jets on brink of elimination after falling to Flames in Game 3

EDMONTON — They made it through one game without two of their star players, and even found a way to excel, but doing it two days in a row was seemingly too much to ask for the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets are now facing elimination from the NHL playoffs after they lost 6-2 to the […]
