It’s been nearly three years since the Buffalo Sabres and Winnipeg Jets made their blockbuster, eight-player deal. The Feb. 11, 2015 trade, a few weeks before the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline, involved players, prospects and a first-round pick. At the time, the Sabres were in 30th place in the NHL standings, while the Jets were

When conversation emerges about Winnipeg Jets’ captain, Blake Wheeler, one thing comes to mind: 100% effort. “He’s without a doubt the leader of this team,” said Bryan Little. “With him, you know what to expect every day. He’s going to bring his 100% effort and I think he’s a great role model for our young

The games between the San Jose Sharks and Winnipeg Jets are sometimes referred to as the NHL’s version of West Side Story. The movie musical featured rival gangs named the Sharks and Jets. And like the movie, the latest contest between the Sharks and Jets provided drama, plot twists, disagreements, villains, victims, pain and anxiety.

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.

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

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

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.
