Jets, Hellebuyck, turn in clunker in Ottawa

They gave up an early two-goal lead, handed out breakaways like candy and squandered a chance at their first four-game win streak of the season. The Winnipeg Jets had no better a Monday than their GM did, coughing up four straight goals in a 4-2 clunker in Ottawa. If the Jets wanted to prove Kevin Cheveldayoff correct in not making a significant addition to their blue line, they missed the chance. ...

Swing and a miss for Cheveldayoff ... Concussed Wheeler takes a step

The last time a Winnipeg general manager swung a buzzer-beating trade at the deadline, it led to a championship parade down Portage Avenue. Alas, defenceman Jordie Benn, whom Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff acquired on Monday, won’t have the same impact quarterback Zach Collaros had on the Blue Bombers in 2019. This move, coming as the seconds ticked down to Monday’s 2 p.m. deadline, won’t go down as Kevin...

Jets' add depth, acquiring D Benn from Canucks

Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff left it late — the deal didn’t trickle in until after the NHL’s trade deadline passed at 2 p.m. CT — but the club added depth with defenceman Jordie Benn from the Vancouver Canucks. The Jets are sending a 2021 sixth-round pick the other way in the deal. The trade has yet to be made official by the club. ...

Jets' Hellebuyck named NHL's first star of the week

Reigning Vezina winner Connor Hellebuyck has been named the NHL’s First Star of the Week after an impressive outing for the Winnipeg Jets over three starts. Hellebuyck, a perfect 3-0-0 last week, posted a .938 save percentage with a 1.67 goals-against average across those wins. Hellebuyck stopped 20 in a 4-3 win against the Ottawa Senators last Monday, 36 in a 4-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens on...

BITS BY BILLECK: Brutal honesty, trade deadlines and a legend lost

You love to see it. Brutal honesty from athletes, that is. There are other sports where it’s elicited far more regularly. Often, NHL players take the respectful route. That wasn’t the case on Saturday with Connor Hellebuyck. After getting run over by Corey Perry, Hellebuyck, self-admitted following the game, had enough as he used his goalie stick to slash Perry after covering the puck for a whistle. ...

Jets' second power-play unit making strong case for PP1 status

It’s said there can be a lot of truth in jest. If that’s so, perhaps Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice wasn’t just having some light-hearted fun in his post-game comments on Saturday night. Fresh off a 5-0 walloping of the Montreal Canadiens, one where his second power-play unit added two more goals to its tally this season, Maurice surmised that the unit often second over the boards with the man advantage pulled even in goals with the team’s — at least on...

BILLECK: Jets blank Habs in one-sided mugging

For a team that’s given the Winnipeg Jets fits all season long, the Montreal Canadiens didn’t have much to offer up on Saturday night. A night that’s alright for fighting turned into a one-sided mugging as the Jets cruised to a 5-0 win at Bell Centre in La Metropole.  The Jets weathered a slight push from the Habs in the infancy of the...

With Savard dealt, Cheveldayoff still has options ahead of NHL trade deadline

This preview was supposed to begin with many words about the Winnipeg Jets going out and firing their best shot to acquire Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman David Savard. There are dangers in writing trade deadline previews in the hours leading up to the said deadline. Savard would have been a solid, and arguably the best possible, addition to Winnipeg’s defensive corps. A right-shot defenceman with a...

Jets' Maurice still tinkering as he looks to settle his lines ahead of playoffs

Paul Maurice is looking to settle his lines ahead of the playoffs, but he’s still a week or so away from getting doing so. The tenured Winnipeg Jets head coach still has a few looks he wants to get an assessment on before tightening his four trios up. “So that anything you might contemplate into the playoffs you’ve looked at once or twice so there’s a bit of a familiarity,” he said on Friday morning...

FRIESEN: Wheeler-less Jets get by Habs

The Winnipeg Jets won their first game without Blake Wheeler, but it probably wasn’t a formula they want to deploy for the rest of this five-game eastern road trip. Playing without their concussed captain for the first time in three calendar years, the Jets got three first-period goals, survived a shaky second and eked out a 4-2 win over the Canadiens in Montreal, Thursday. “You have a bunch of people...

Jets, Habs missing key leaders... Harkins kept chin up on taxi squad

While the Winnipeg Jets are without captain Blake Wheeler for their two-game set in Montreal, Thursday and Saturday, the Canadiens are without Brendan Gallagher. Both fill similar leadership roles, setting the tone for their teammates. “Those guys play hard every shift and every night, they really help your consistency as a team,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said before Thursday’s opening faceoff. “And...

Come on down to Winnipeg, Scheifele says, as trade deadline nears

Who wouldn’t want to join the Winnipeg Jets for the playoffs? At least that’s how Mark Scheifele sees it, four days away from the NHL trade deadline. With the Jets, among the deeper teams in hockey up front, fighting for the top two spots in the all-Canadian division, Scheifele doesn’t see why any potential trade acquisition wouldn’t agree to come to Winnipeg next week. ...

Suspected concussion fells Jets' captain Wheeler indefinitely

Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler is out indefinitely with a suspected concussion. Head coach Paul Maurice revealed the news Wednesday morning, saying Wheeler won’t be on the five-game road trip the Jets start in Montreal, Thursday. “He took the elbow last game, was fine, felt good,” Maurice said. “Started to feel a little off yesterday and then today started not feeling great. The word’s...

With less on his shoulders, Jets' Dubois able to develop game

Truthfully, Paul Maurice said he doesn’t know. And to the Winnipeg Jets head coach, even if he did, it’s not important. When faced with a question regarding a theory of comfortability for Pierre-Luc Dubois — that he perhaps has more of it now than he did during his tenure with the Columbus Blue Jackets — Maurice brushed it aside as irrelevant. ...

Jets hold on for win over last-place Sens

The Winnipeg Jets vowed they weren’t going to take Ottawa lightly and for two periods, at least, they backed up their talk with their walk. They’ll want to forget about a good portion of Monday night’s third, though. Waltzing into the final period with a 4-1 lead, the Jets seemed to forget that if the Senators are anything, they’re pesky. ...
