Jets 'surviving' early trek through Great White North

There was fist-pumping in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary, with just one regulation loss between them, near panic in Edmonton and Vancouver, and pleasant surprise in Ottawa. If you’re looking for a word or two to describe the state of the Winnipeg Jets after one week in the NHL’s Great White North Division, how about “unease”? The Jets will take their 2-1 mark through three games, but haven’t looked...

Jets' Laine hits ice, remains 'doubtful'

Winnipeg Jets star Patrik Laine remains sidelined as the team prepares to face the Senators in Ottawa for a second straight time on Thursday. Laine hit the ice briefly today, but head coach Paul Maurice described him as “doubtful” for the game, the third straight he’d be missing after pulling up lame following the Jets’ season-opener. Laine scored twice, including the overtime winner, and set up...

The Patrik Laine watch continued Tuesday in the nation’s capital, with the star Winnipeg Jets winger going to the rink again but not getting in the lineup for a second straight night.

'Pedal to the metal' for Jets' Stanley

How he must be getting tired of questions about his size. And heaven forbid one more inquiring mind asks him about the pressure of being a first-round draft pick. On Monday, finally, 6-foot-7 defenceman Logan Stanley was being asked about playing his first game in the NHL. That it was coming in Toronto, so close to his hometown of Waterloo,...

Jets fall to Leafs after getting dominated in second period

Two games, two significant stretches of getting completely dominated by an opponent, two different results. Unlike last Thursday night, when the Winnipeg Jets were able to overcome a terrible first period, and an early two-goal deficit, and win in overtime against Calgary in their season opener, there would be no such comeback Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs rode an absolutely dominant...

JETS SNAPSHOTS: Jets playing it safe with Laine with tough stretch of games ahead

Patrik Laine was the unquestioned star of Game 1 of the NHL season for the Winnipeg Jets, but by the time Game 2 rolled around, he was a spectator. The 22-year-old winger scored two goals, including the winner in overtime, and added an assist in his team’s 4-3 win over the Calgary Flames last Thursday, but he was out of the line-up for Monday’s game in Toronto against the Maple Leafs because of an upper-body injury. ...

SNAPSHOTS: No trains, fewer planes and automobiles suits Jets just fine... Scheifele says he's spent the money, so he can take the ice time... Coach longs for the day fans return

Normally Josh Morrissey would look at a schedule like this and shudder. Starting Monday in Toronto, his Winnipeg Jets play five games in seven days, unheard of since he cracked the NHL five years ago. “We don’t have a ton of experience with that many games in a short time,” the defenceman said, Sunday. “But I do recall a few years ago we had a pretty hectic start to our season.” ...

FRIESEN: Injury to Laine just latest curveball for Jets

One thing appears certain about this very uncertain NHL season: there may never be a dull moment. I’m not even talking about the games. One game and three days into it for the Winnipeg Jets, the juggling of bodies on and off the COVID-alert list has combined with a combination of really good news and potentially very bad to create a lineup in flux going into Monday night’s tilt with the Leafs in Toronto....

Jets cancel practice due to potential COVID exposure

It didn’t take long for COVID-19 to affect the Winnipeg Jets. After an off day on Friday, the NHL team has cancelled Saturday’s practice due to threats from the coronavirus. That doesn’t necessarily mean someone on the team has tested positive. It could mean one or two players, coaches or staff members have symptoms, and based on the number of close contacts, the Jets are being extra careful. ...
