Fehr Trade Value

It’s a strange and long and winding story for Winkler, Manitoba’s Eric Fehr. The recently much maligned 6’4, 212 lb. winger has hit another rough patch on his road to recovery. Bogged down with shoulder injuries the past few seasons, Fehr has never played more than 69 games in a season – that coming during […]

Noel Knows Home Cooking Good For Long Term Success

With 13 of the next 15 at home, many have been harping on the fact that the Winnipeg Jets season will boil down to how these next bundle of games will play out. For what it’s worth, those many people are somewhat right. A rocky start in a 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators on […]

Lightning Doesn’t Strike MTS Centre

Call it what you will, but the Winnipeg Jets brought their “A” game to the hangar on Monday night against a very difficult and stingy opponent. At the end of the night, they had their sixth win of the season and two points in the bag. The best part of the game was not the […]

Jets Fall To Lowly Jackets

The Winnipeg Jets’ struggles continue as they fell to the lowliest team in the NHL as Ryan Johansen, a healthy scratch for their last game, scored twice as the Jets lost 2-1. Mark Stuart responded with the only tally for the Jets shorthanded for his second with under five minutes left. Despite the 36 shots […]

Game #17: Jets @ Jackets

Last time these two teams met was in the pre-season during a split-squad game that had one half of the Jets delighting the MTS Centre while the other half struggled in Ohio. Now seventeen games into the 2011-12 season, the Winnipeg Jets (5-8-3) find themselves in a much better position than the ex-Jet/ex-Moose Scott Arniel […]

Jets Fall Flat Back At Home To Panthers 5-2

It was another former Chicago Blackhawk that had the big night on the scoresheet Thursday night at MTS Centre as the Florida Panthers came into Winnipeg and took two points away from the hometown Jets. Kris Versteeg scored the game’s opening two goals and added an empty netter for his first hat trick of his […]

Game #16: Jets vs. Panthers

Welcome home Jets. It’s been a while has it not? The Winnipeg Jets return to shake the dust off the MTS Centre tonight as they host the Florida Panthers in only their fifth game on home ice this season. So far, the Jets are sporting a 2-2-0 record at home, with wins over Pittsburgh (2-1) […]

Jets Return Home After Confidence Building Road Trip

Not only did Bryan Little finally bulge the twine or Ondrej Pavelec collect his first shutout, but the Winnipeg Jets were able to have a winning record on the road trip (3-2-2) and collect eight out of a possible 14 points. Another positive from the Jets two week road trip are the emergence of Mark […]

Game #15: Jets @ Sabres

The Winnipeg Jets (5-7-2) get set for the final game of their seven game road trip before they head home to face the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. They face off with the Buffalo Sabres (8-5-0), a team that has had a good start to the season, thanks to hot starts from Thomas Vanek (16 […]

Tall Order Coming With Young Jets Defense

With their best defenseman so far this season out of the lineup indefinitely, the Winnipeg Jets and their young defensive core have a large and meaningful task ahead of them. And Tobias Enstrom’s broken collarbone isn’t the only thing that is keeping the young core busy either. Injuries to Ron Hainsey, who is slated to […]

Rangers Shutout Jets in Big Apple 3-0

Marian Gaborik singlehandedly beat the Winnipeg Jets Sunday night, with three points, including two goals, en route to a 3-0 win over the Jets. Martin Biron, who has started both games for the Rangers against the Jets, stopped all 23 shots against him in the win. Derek Stepan’s power play marker at 10:01 of the […]

Game #14: Jets @ Rangers

Sunday night marks the sixth of seven road games during an Eastern trip for the Winnipeg Jets (5-6-2) as they visit Madison Square Gardens and the New York Rangers (6-3-3). The Jets and Rangers meet for the second time this season – the last meeting a 2-1 win for the Rangers at the MTS Centre […]

Jets Grab Important Point In 3-2 OT Loss To Devils

Mark Flood made quite the impression Saturday night in only his second Winnipeg Jets game with a goal and an assist. Flood’s first career goal in his eighth career NHL game was a big one as it got the Jets on the board 6:43 into the third period. Later on, he would chip in with […]

Game #13: Jets @ Devils

Saturday night, the surging Winnipeg Jets (5-6-1) hope that the number 13 isn’t unlucky as they take on the New Jersey Devils (5-5-1) at Prudential Centre. Both teams have posted 5-4-1 records over their last ten games, but both teams will be missing some of their key players Saturday night as the Jets will still […]

Jets Shutout Islanders on the Island 3-0

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 34 shots and the Winnipeg Jets and their starting goalie captured their first shutout of the season as the Jets blanked the New York Islanders 3-0 Thursday night.
