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

After a very disappointing 2016-17 season, the Winnipeg Jets knew that defending their net was the biggest issue to solve. The Jets were in need of some help on the blue line, and more than that, in the crease. Goaltending was a major struggle for Winnipeg as both Ondrej Pavelec and Connor Hellebuyck were inconsistent.

It is already apparent that general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and the Winnipeg Jets won the trade that sent power forward Evander Kane to the Buffalo Sabres in February of 2015. The Jets packaged Kane with rugged defender Zach Bogosian and goaltender Jason Kasdorf to the Sabres for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia, Brendan Lemieux and

The Winnipeg Jets are accumulating depth up front better than ever before. Their core top-six remains intact and their constantly fluid bottom-six continues to be an extremely fierce competition. Veterans like Bryan Little, Matthieu Perreault, and captain Blake Wheeler are undeniably penciled into their top two lines. Having Little healthy for the whole season will

With the quality of roster put together by Winnipeg Jets general manager, Kevin Cheveldayoff, the club was undoubtedly expected to make the playoffs. Those expectations fell short and the team found themselves on the golf course by May. One can chalk up the disappointing season to poor goaltending, underperforming depth players or untimely injuries but no matter

Bryan Little could have earned a lucrative contract anywhere in the NHL upon conclusion of his deal with the Jets. He could have signed a massive contract to carry him right through to retirement. Instead, Little committed to the only franchise he’s ever known ahead of training camp on September 14, inking a six-year deal

Every year, the Winnipeg Jets participate in a Penticton, British Columbia-based tournament dubbed the Young Stars Classic. The event features the four Canadian teams from the Western Conference — the Calgary Flames, the Edmonton Oilers and the Vancouver Canucks along with the Jets. The tournament has seen the likes of Johnny Gaudreau, Bo Horvat, Connor

The Winnipeg Jets’ roster looks awfully different from the one that touched down in the prairies in October 2011. The forward core has been dramatically shaken up to the point where it would be almost unrecognizable to the Jets fans of that inaugural year. The defense is similarly altered, and none of the original goalies remain either.

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 organization

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

Josh Morrissey can’t take any sort of step back this year. The Winnipeg Jets can’t afford it. Morrissey is coming off a quietly successful rookie season with the Jets. He wasn’t a serious Calder Trophy contender at any point, but he was a surprisingly stabilizing force on the back end. Morrissey put up small but encouraging

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. This July, the Jets inked a pair of players that already have a secured spot on the opening night roster and hopefully this

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.

It’s the oldest mantra in the profession: coaches are hired to be fired. In his long coaching career, Paul Maurice knows it well. Perhaps it’s an unfair saying, as coaches can’t do anything but work with the talent their GM assembles, but it has proven true many times. When a team struggles, the coach gets

Growing up so far away may take some by surprise judging by how similar Scott Kosmachuk and JC Lipon are. Kosmachuk’s hometown of Richmond Hill, Ontario is a shade over 2700 kilometres from Lipon’s home in Regina, Saskatchewan. Their junior clubs brought them even further apart as Kosmachuk’s Guelph Storm played 3979 kilometres from Lipon’s

Fate was certainly with the Winnipeg Jets on April 30, 2016. That was the day the balls fell in their favor and gave them the opportunity to draft second overall. With that pick, they chose Finland’s second favorite hockey player, Patrik Laine (sorry, but he won’t upend Teemu Selanne anytime soon). The team and the

When you have one of the deepest prospect pools in the NHL, it’s no easy task narrowing that pool down to the four best. That, however, is the Winnipeg Jets’ perfect problem. There are any number of talented prospects who could appear on this list. I’d venture to say you could leave the Jets’ best
