Jets Could Make a Simmonds Trade Work

As the 2018-19 season slips into its back half and the Feb. 25 trade deadline inches ever-nearer, speculation as to which players powerhouse teams might add to bolster their playoff runs are beginning to ramp up. The Winnipeg Jets, legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, are no exception. There have been rumours recently that the Jets might be looking to make a move similar to last season when they acquired Paul Statsny. The addition simultaneously bolstered their already well-stocked offensive...

Penguins Down Jets – Winning Streak at 8

PITTSBURGH — Olli Maatta and Matt Cullen scored 11 seconds apart in the first period, Matt Murray stopped 33 shots and the surging Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 on Friday night for their eighth straight victory. Maatta picked up his first goal since last March when his power-play goal beat Connor Hellebuyck 14:19 into the first period and Cullen added his fourth when Zach Aston-Reese’s centring pass went airborne and caromed off Cullen’s left shoulder and into the net.

Predators’ Top-5 Storylines of 2018

The 2018 calendar year was an eventful, and for the most part, a good year for the Nashville Predators. From Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, they went 53-23-8. They won at least 50 percent of their games in every month but December and lost two or fewer games in January, February and April. Ryan Johansen paced the team with 15 goals and 64 points while Roman Josi was the team’s highest-scoring blueliner with 14 goals and 59 points. The rest of the top-five consisted of Filip Forsberg’s 25 goals and 52 p...

Flames Snap 3-Game Skid With Win Over Jets

WINNIPEG — Johnny Gaudreau had a hat trick as the Calgary Flames ended a three-game losing skid with a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday. Mark Jankowski had a shorthanded, third-period goal for Calgary, which was 0-2-1 heading into the game. Sean Monahan contributed three assists and Elias Lindholm added a pair. Gaudreau’s first goal was actually a redirection by Jets forward Patrik Laine, who stuck out his stick to block a Gaudreau pass attempt to Lindholm, but the puck went by goa...

Top 5 Winnipeg Jets Games So Far

The Winnipeg Jets are currently on a well-deserved four-day break after playing nine games in 16 days, but The Hockey Writers and this author never take a holiday. Despite the fact more than half of the 2018-19 season has yet to be played, the Central Division-leading Jets have racked up a lot of wins so far — 24 of them, in fact — and created many memorable moments in the process.

Whicker: The young and the old combine to lead the Kings to an impressive win

LOS ANGELES — The learning finally began to curve for the Kings on Tuesday night. Rookie Austin Wagner scored twice. Rookie Matt Luff shook off an offside, which nullified a goal after Winnipeg called for a replay, and sprung Wagner loose for his second goal. Rookie Daniel Brickley fired the puck from the left point that Wagner redirected for the first goal. If you’ve been following this so far, you might get the impression that the Kings scored more than once. In fact, they beat the Jets 4-1. I...

Brossoit Is Jets’ Biggest Surprise This Season

Many storylines surrounding the Winnipeg Jets this season — such as their prolific power play, Patrik Laine’s innate goal-scoring ability, and Kyle Connor’s continued success — are not hugely surprising. However, one storyline has been rather unexpected: the steady, heady play of backup goaltender Laurent Brossoit. Brossoit Cool, Confident and Capable Brossoit has been so sturdy fans have given him the moniker “Bross-Wall.” With a 7-1-1 record, 2.35 GAA, and .930 SV%, he’s exceeding all ...

Winnipeg Jets Soar Past Philadelphia Flyers 7-1

WINNIPEG — Defenceman Josh Morrissey scored the early winner and added an assist as the Winnipeg Jets routed the visiting Philadelphia Flyers 7-1 on Sunday.

Hellebuyck’s Play Far from Solid This Season

Not many people thought goaltending would be an issue for the 2018-19 Winnipeg Jets. The team appeared to be set between the pipes coming into this season, inking Vezina-nominated goalie Connor Hellebuyck to a six-year, $37 million contract that seemed to be a steal. However, through the first 23 games of the season, the 25-year-old has looked shaky and been far from the goaltender who won 44 times and contributed massively to his team’s success in 2017-18. Hellebuyck’s Statistics Show Re...

Frederik Andersen: Toronto Maple Leafs’ Best Player By Far

On Monday night, Frederik Andersen was amazing leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to yet another victory. Except for two goals by the Boston Bruins’ young star David Pastrnak, Andersen stopped 38 of 40 shots in Monday’s 4-2 win. That’s a lot of shots, and that’s a lot of saves – a save percentage of a nifty .950. But, as good as that seems, it is typical of how the 29-year-old Andersen has played this season. He is, without a doubt, the Maple Leafs’ MVP. And, one can make a case that he has b...

Connor Hellebuyck Takes The Blame For Tying Goal Last Night

from TSN, Winnipeg Jets goaltender  Connor Hellebuyck  stopped 26 of the 30 shots he faced Tuesday night against Pittsburgh Penguins and shouldered the blame for the 4-3 loss after allowing a weak goal early in the third period. With the Jets up 3-2 in the final frame, Hellebuyck failed to stop a soft wrist shot from Penguins fourth-liner  Derek Grant , allowing the Penguins to tie the game 3-3 with just under 15 minutes remaining. “That one is on me," Hellebuyck said of Grant'...

Alex Stalock made 26 saves while filling in for Devan Dubnyk, who was scratched with an illness.

Jets Need Much More From Myers

It’s one thing to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. It’s another to have those adjectives describe your season. Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers has struggled mightily through the first quarter of the 2018-19 season, and his exceptionally poor play over the Jets’ past few contests has brought the situation closer to a head. From Luxury to Liability Coming into the season, it seemed as if having a veteran of 365 NHL games playing a third-pairing role, against the oppos...
