Jets players score in the clutch, donate $100K to Harvest

Winning on the ice may be on hold at the moment for the Winnipeg Jets, but that’s not stopping them from doing so off of it. While the National Hockey League hit the pause button on the 2019-20 regular season last week thanks to the coronavirus, Jets players came together to deliver a big win […]

FRIESEN: Jets finally end self-inflicted PR nightmare

It took three days, a torrent of public criticism on social media and a fundraising campaign by an embarrassed fan, but the Winnipeg Jets are finally doing the right thing. Perhaps being linked to Ottawa owner Eugene Melnyk was what finally pushed the Jets to reach the land of common sense. On Thursday when the […]

FRIESEN: Jets fan calls on grassroots fundraising for arena workers

A former Winnipegger living in Calgary is so disappointed with the owners of the Winnipeg Jets, he’s started a GoFundMe page to help part-time employees who are out of work due to the coronavirus. Dick McDougall, a 55-year-old high-school teacher and lifelong Jets fan who grew up in Crestview, says if True North Sports and […]

FRIESEN: Jets should step up for arena workers

Our local pro sports teams do charitable things all the time, and they don’t usually find their way into this space. Giving back to the community should be automatic for pro athletes, their coaches, managers and team owners, done without the reward of publicity. After all, they’re not only making good money – gobs of […]

Playoff games in July possible: Jets’ Chipman

Hockey in July? If they’re lucky. The NHL is looking at playing the Stanley Cup Playoffs into the summer months if it has to postpone the season that long to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. “Yeah, I can see it going into July,” Winnipeg Jets chairman Mark Chipman said at a Thursday afternoon […]

NHL hiatus comes at bad time for Jets, but that doesn’t matter

CALGARY — Legendary Canadian frontman Gord Downie once sang the words, ‘It couldn’t come at a worse time.’ You’d have to imagine the Winnipeg Jets could relate to that a little on Thursday. Locked in a fierce battle for a playoff spot and running hot on the heels of a current four-game winning streak, the […]

Connor’s two goals lead Jets past Oilers

EDMONTON — It was a hockey game that had immense significance as far as the playoff picture goes. That image may be a little distorted at the moment, however. The pertinent hockey stuff is this: Kyle Connor scored twice, goals 37 and 38 of the season for the 23-year-old, to help the Winnipeg Jets back […]

Playing in an empty arena would be ‘weird’ and ‘unusual’, Jets say

EDMONTON — Rogers Place, in its hockey configuration, is a sprawling 18,500-spectator, half-billion-dollar cavernous arena smack dab in the heart of Northern Alberta. On Wednesday night, the house that has been home to Connor McDavid since it opened in 2016, was well-attending, but not full. Still, the throngs of fans enjoyed themselves in the spacious […]

Jets confidence might be at a season high… Wheeler: ‘We really shouldn’t be where we’re at’… Injuries, sked, took a toll, but now they’re rested and in ‘fair fight’ for playoff spot

A season-high three wins in a row, unprecedented health and a softer schedule. The Winnipeg Jets have a few reasons to be confident going into a three-game trip through western Canada. As modest as their longest win streak of the season is, their level of confidence may be higher than it’s been all season. For […]

FRIESEN: Lowry adds edge, muscle, when Jets need it most

It was right after the Winnipeg Jets’ 4-2 win over Arizona on Monday, and Adam Lowry and Nik Ehlers were about to step up to the podium to take questions. “The goal scorer and the goon,” Lowry said, before taking his seat behind one of the microphones. Looking at what had just happened, Lowry’s point […]

Jets battle back to beat Coyotes

It was as close to a playoff game as two teams could have in the month of March. Heading into Monday night’s Winnipeg-Arizona matchup, members of the Coyotes were even calling it a Game 7. While nobody got eliminated from the heated Western Conference playoff chase, a 4-2 Jets comeback win definitely put the Coyotes […]

Jets keep distance from media as fears mount over coronavirus… Lowry’s return makes for best lineup yet… walking playoff tightrope fine for this bunch

The Winnipeg Jets closed their dressing room to the media on Monday amid growing concern over the coronavirus. Instead of having reporters mingle with and talk to players around their lockers, interviews were moved to a media room with players seated behind microphones on a podium. The policy came as an NHL recommendation, although it […]

Lowry steps into Jets pressure cooker

The Winnipeg Jets will ice their deepest lineup of the season tonight, and their timing couldn’t be better. This home-ice tilt against the Arizona Coyotes has playoff implications, most notably that the loser will find themselves behind the eight-ball in trying to crack the top eight in the hard-fought Western Conference race. The Jets, tied […]
