He walks like a National Hockey Leaguer. Talks like one, too. And with every turn on the ice Adam Lowry is winning over the person that matters most in determining whether he is actually big-league ready.
And that would be Paul Maurice.
"I liked him," said the Jets coach after Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild. "I liked a lot of things that he does that...
Mark Scheifele isn’t an unknown around the Jets’ locker room or organization. He’s not some temporary try-out, or a young kid who’s about ready to be sent back to his junior team. He’s the Jets’ first draft pick after relocation moved the Thrashers to Winnipeg, and he’s become a regular and dependable part of their team. But man, that name sure is hard to spell.
Are we going to have to download apps to follow individual athletes? If Jacob Trouba is a sign of things to come, that may be the case. The Winnipeg defenseman took to Twitter and encouraged followers to download his app. The app, which is supposedly going to replace his activity on Twitter and Instagram, will be the home of “exclusive content, rewards, contests” among other...
Former UMass Lowell River Hawk standout goaltender Connor Hellebuyck is currently at Winnipeg Jets training camp trying to make an impression on the Jets’ upper management. He talked with JETSTV on Friday, September 26.
The 21-year-old opted to skip his remaining two-years of NCAA eligibility to sign professionally with the Jets.
In two years at UMass Lowell, Hellebuyck posted...
We sort of suspected this over the summer when the rumor winds were blowing and we were all wondering what the Flyers were going to do about adding a scorer to play on the wing, but TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Tuesday night that Ron Hextall was close to pulling a trigger on a trade for Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets.
You can watch the video here. We've transcribed the...

Nikolaj Ehlers is the next one. This Great Dane as he is often referred to in his early hockey career could be the greatest Dane of them all. There is Lars Eller for Montreal he is a Great Dane, then you have Janik Hansen he also is a Great Dane, then you have…the rest of the team who are just average muckers. If he wears number 8 he could be a Great Eight Dane. All that aside...
There are a lot of restarts and clean slates going on at Winnipeg Jets' training camp.
Among the most dramatic of those is for defenceman Grant Clitsome, whose 2013-14 crashed and burned before Christmas because of a worsening back injury that eventually required surgery in mid-January.
The 29-year-old from the Ottawa area is once again healthy and his addition to the regular...
from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
I asked Byfuglien a simple question about his expectations for the season.
"Um, be back on defence anytime, right away," quipped Byfuglien, before getting serious again. "No, just have a good start and do what I do and bring to the table what I usually do. Provide a little bit of everything. Focus on defence first and the...
Evander Kane thinks pretty highly of himself. That’s not exactly a shocking headline, but his latest comments in regards to his goal production might be. Though his best goal total in a season was 30 in 2011-12 and last year he lit the lamp just 19 times, Kane told the Ottawa Sun he’s capable of much more. “I said when I got drafted that I can score 50 and I know I can score...

Hockey and the NHL has not been immune as besides from the classic goals and assists statistics we are now seeing the new advanced...
from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
Evander Kane believes he could be on the verge of a breakout season.
Rarely short on bravado, Kane was mostly playful as he met the media and made a bold proclamation on Friday that should generate the type of headline that would have Winnipeg Jets’ fans dancing in the streets if it comes to fruition.
In past years, Kane has often...
The 2013-14 NHL season was the first for the Winnipeg Jets as members of the Western Conference, and it didn’t go very well with an 11th place finish.
The Jets moved back to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season after relocating from Atlanta and haven’t made the playoffs over the last three seasons. Fan support remains strong, but the team has to show some progress sooner or later...

The Winnipeg Jets latest six game pointless streak really came at an inconvenient time.
Thanks, Captain Obvious.
It isn't any secret though why it happened when it did.
On March 4th, rookie Mark Scheifele – the face of the franchise – went down due to an injury and that 3-2 loss at the hand of the Islanders that night began a six game pointless streak that lasted until...
