JETS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jets F Kane expected to begin skating this weekend

Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane is expected to begin skating on his own this weekend as recovers from a lower-body injury. Jets head coach Paul Maurice said Thursday Kane is progressing well but has not skated since suffering the injury. The 23-year-old collided knee-on-knee with teammate Mark Scheifele early in the first period of the Jets October 9 victory over the Arizona...

Jets’ Maurice apologizes for using the F-bomb at a reporter

Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice had some choice words for a reporter on Monday. With the Jets having lost four games in a row, Maurice was asked about accountability in the dressing room. His response, well, at the very least he’ll have to drop a quarter in the swear jar. “It’s not the player’s job to tell you about it,” Maurice started in, as per a video on TSN...

The Winnipeg Jets Are Not As Bad As It Seems

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, Has it already gone sideways? Five games in? Maybe. It will now take a four-game winning streak to climb above .500 and it won't happen on this homestand. With Carolina, Tampa Bay and Colorado still to come before the Jets hit the road next, the best this group will be able to call itself is .500 when they climb on the charter...

Lowry man in middle

The changes to the Winnipeg Jets' forward combinations were not surprising on Saturday. The extent to which head coach Paul Maurice was selling the key change -- moving rookie Adam Lowry to centre -- was fairly bold. Certainly, Maurice is looking to spark a team that has been offensively challenged in the last three games, all losses. They have exactly one goal to show for...

GIF: Dustin Byfuglien’s temper tantrum in the tunnel

After receiving a game misconduct, Dustin Byfuglien wasn’t a very happy person. He received it after reportedly giving San Jose goaltender Alex Stalock a snow shower and for slamming his stick on the glass in the penalty box. When he headed down the tunnel, Big Buff used his stick to take out his frustrations on a wall. (H/T Reddit Hockey)

Dustin Byfuglien Back To Forward

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, It certainly didn’t take Dustin Byfuglien long to work his way back into the top-six forward mix. After Evander Kane suffered a knee injury early in the first period of Thursday’s 6-2 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes, there was Byfuglien taking the majority of minutes alongside Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler. It’s a trio that...

Evander Kane Suffers An Apparent Knee Injury

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, Kane was doing his best to stay onside and Scheifele didn’t see him and went barreling into him, making hard contact with Kane’s right knee. Kane was down on the ice writhing in pain, before he was helped to the bench. After coming back for one shift during a Jets’ power play, Kane made his way to the dressing room for further...

Winnipeg Jets can’t spell own player's name

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. Jets’...

The Future is Coming Soon To A Rink Near You

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...

Evander Kane: “I know I can score 50″

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...

Things still uneasy for Evander Kane, Winnipeg Jets

They may not have to deal with insane, dysfunctional scenarios like ownership trying to sell the team to three different parties secretly, but things are far from great for the Winnipeg Jets. There had been speculation for a long, long while about whether or not Evander Kane was a part of Winnipeg’s future. Sure, he’s signed through the 2017-18 season, but after the constant...
