Winnipeg Jets

It’s a mark of how good the 2015 NHL Entry Draft was for the Winnipeg Jets that Erik Foley isn’t talked about more. After all, the third rounder would be a top-tier prospect on most teams. A quick run-through of 2015 reveals just how jaw-droppingly good it was for the Jets. Kyle Connor fell into

Since the Winnipeg Jets had the convenience of moving their American Hockey League affiliate from St. John’s to Manitoba, reviving the Moose franchise, it has come with a lot of disappointment. Now in their third season, the team is finally taking steps forward integrating high-end draft picks with experienced AHL veterans. After a 16 game

The 2013 NHL Entry Draft saw several current superstars make their first appearance on stage in their new threads including Nathan MacKinnon, Aleksander Barkov and Sean Monahan. Nine players from the first-round have been traded since, most notably, Jonathan Drouin, Seth Jones and Shea Theodore. Eight players from that draft class have dressed in less than

The Winnipeg Jets bandwagon hasn’t exactly been overcrowded through their playoff-less seasons. At this rate, it will start filling up in a real hurry. The Jets are playing fast, physical, entertaining hockey right now. Even without two of their top four defensemen, they’ve been dominant at times over their most recent series, a tour of

So here’s a chicken-egg question: did the Winnipeg Jets top line make Kyle Connor, or did Connor complete the top unit? The title of this piece is likely a giveaway, but Connor has been the missing ingredient on the Jets top line this year. The loss of Mathieu Perreault could’ve been devastating, but Connor’s emergence has

It is not often that we get a chance to see two teams go head-to-head in a so-called response game this early in an NHL season. In most cases, that kind of scenario has traditionally revolved around sending a message to the opponent at the other end of the rink. However, in this case, that applies

Goaltending was a frequent topic of conversation last season and not in the way Winnipeg Jets management or fans anticipated. Connor Hellebuyck performed admirably for a young netminder, earning 26 victories in 56 starts. Michael Hutchinson was between the pipes for the majority of the remainder of games but appears a likely candidate to be

The Winnipeg Jets have had plenty of issues with goaltending before. From everyday inconsistencies to a young goaltender working through some kinks, they have had their fair share of problems. This year’s crease complication is due to the fact of an overload of the position. The Jets enter the season without Ondrej Pavelec in the

Too many times hockey fans have watched their team’s promising college prospects get stolen away before they can even see them sport the jersey. One of the biggest risks of drafting an NCAA player is that once his schooling is completed, he can opt to not sign with the NHL club that drafted him. The

It is a rare occurrence when Kevin Cheveldayoff and the Winnipeg Jets have an active offseason. In 2012, it was viewed as a busy summer signing forwards Olli Jokinen and Alexei Ponikarovsky.

The Winnipeg Jets have never won a division title, and it’s been over ten years since the Atlanta Thrashers claimed one. With a playoff spot still on the to-do list for the Jets, projecting a division title would seem premature. For the Jets, however, 2017-18 represents their best opportunity yet to claim the Central crown.

“Why do you guys want to talk to me? I’m nothing special,” joked Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets after a late-March game in New Jersey. Quite modest for a kid who just turned 19-years-old after completing his first full NHL season with the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets, who jumped from 6th to 2nd in
