It’s a big game for Travis Hamonic tonight. The Manitoba native will suit up for the first time against the Jets as a member of the Islanders.
The Winnipeg Jets have shown a willingness to fight for wins, especially against the Florida Panthers on Monday, where a two-goal lead turned into a one-goal deficit, but eventually ended in a Winnipeg victory. [National Post]
The Winnipeg Jets’ Defence is seriously wounded. The Jets are heading into tonight’s game minus Derek Meech, Mark Stuart, Ron Hainsey and Tobias Enstrom. They might want to grab some old Jerseys out of the archives and sign up Dave Ellett and Jim Kyte for the weekend. [Winnipeg Free Press]
A couple days old, but a really good breakdown of the stats of the Winnipeg Jets draft prospects on their respective Junior/College teams so far this season. Spoiler: Scheifele has 8 points in 3 games with the Barrie Colts. [Illegal Curve]
A good quote concerning the Jets’ Defence from Bettmans Nightmare at Arctic Ice Hockey.
My biggest concern tonight is we will be without the services of one Tobias Enstrom, otherwise known as Pepto Bismol to Dustin Byfuglien’s diarrheal defence. Toby eats ups a ridiculous amount of minutes, and it’s a real question how we’re going to fill the void. Could you believe that our defence could potentially be worse this game?
