Jets blue-liner Clitsome says he's recovered from injury

There are a lot of restarts and clean slates going on at Winnipeg Jets' training camp. Among the most dramatic of those is for defenceman Grant Clitsome, whose 2013-14 crashed and burned before Christmas because of a worsening back injury that eventually required surgery in mid-January. The 29-year-old from the Ottawa area is once again healthy and his addition to the regular...

Dustin Byfuglien Playing Two Roles

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...

Jets prospect Josh Morrissey is a seasoned rookie after playing 112 games last season

One hundred and twelve — 112! — hockey games in a single season. Most guys couldn’t even watch that many from their La-Z-Boy recliner without their wife leaving. Add ‘em up, though, and that’s exactly how many times Calgary-born blue-liner Josh Morrissey laced up his blades for game action during the 2013-14 campaign — a tally that includes pre-season skates with the...

The 2013-14 NHL season was the first for the Winnipeg Jets as members of the Western Conference, and it didn’t go very well with an 11th place finish. The Jets moved back to Winnipeg for the 2011-12 season after relocating from Atlanta and haven’t made the playoffs over the last three seasons. Fan support remains strong, but the team has to show some progress sooner or later...

The Winnipeg Jets aren't sure how to use their most valuable tool

When Dustin Byfuglien was drafted into the NHL, it was as a defenseman. Then Chicago made him a forward, except when they needed an extra D-man. Then the Thrashers/Jets picked him up, and he played D, then forward, then D, then forward. As it stands, he’s heading into next year as a forward. This is a unique situation to be in with a player; basically only the San Jose Sharks...

Winnipeg Sun: Blake Wheeler is a leader and wants Evander Kane to join him
