FRIESEN: Grunt work has Jets sitting pretty

A surprise passenger walked down the aisle looking for his seat on Delta Flight 783 from Dallas to the Twin Cities on Friday morning. It was Kevin Cheveldayoff, the man who generally manages the Winnipeg Jets. “They won’t let me on the team flight,” Cheveldayoff joked, making his way to the back half of the […]

Jets can’t complete comeback, drop OT decision in Dallas

DALLAS — Down 2-0 and being properly outplayed going into the third period, the Winnipeg Jets apparently had the Dallas Stars right where they wanted them here, Thursday night.

Jets’ Appleton rues freak accident

Defensive back Mason Appleton is so close to returning to the Winnipeg Jets lineup, he can almost taste it. Wait, what? This was supposed to be a hockey story. Well, it is. It’s just that six weeks ago, the Jets forward broke a bone in his foot while tossing a football around with teammates on […]

FRIESEN: Jets have Stars’ number

It’s the dirty little secret the Winnipeg Jets don’t want to talk about. Little wonder, as the Jets, coming off Tuesday’s 5-1 whitewash of the Stars, go into Dallas for the rematch on Thursday. After all, why provide bulletin-board material on the eve of another Lone Star Skate? The not-so-ugly truth is the Stars have […]

Jets roll on, crush Stars 5-1

The most important thing about the Winnipeg Jets’ impressive month of November wasn’t all the wins they produced. Sure, that 10-2-1 record it looks good on paper and it’s incredibly important in the standings at the end of the day, but what made the penultimate month of 2019 memorable for the Jets was the way […]

Asked on Monday to describe the process from being drafted to being a member of the Winnipeg Jets’ top-six forward contingent, Jack Roslovic broke his gaze from the reporter and looked up at the clock that sits overtop the whiteboard in the team’s dressing room. “What time is it?” he asked with a smile. “I […]

It’s one of those situations where you scratch your head and wonder, ‘Why didn’t they do this sooner?’ There were myriad reasons to split up Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele at the beginning of the season, or in the second half of last year.

Jets run out of gas, fall to Kings in Cali

Jets put band back together to make music on power play

LOS ANGELES — The change came with a few minutes to spare at Tuesday morning practice this past week. The Winnipeg Jets often work on their power play these days during their training sessions, and perhaps more so this year than any in recent memory. It hasn’t clicked in the same way it has in […]
