Winnipeg's power play has been rolling during the preseason.
The Jets have scored 12 of their 15 exhibition goals while on the man advantage. They went three-for-seven in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Ottawa. "We're not running at 40 percent during the regular season. Nobody does," said coach Paul Maurice. "But there's lots of confidence there and lots of good players there." Winnipeg's power play ranked 18th overall last season. Sep 28 - 8:43 AM

Jets coach Paul Maurice and GM Kevin Chevaldayoff have both reportedly been given contract extensions.

Maurice had one year left on his contract. Winnipeg has only made the playoffs once in his four seasons as a bench boss with the Jets. Overall, Maurice has a 596-569-99-101 over his career as a head coach. As for Chevaldayoff, he's been the GM of the Winnipeg Jets since 2011 and has seen them make the playoffs once in the last six campaigns. While the duo doesn't have a record of success, the Jets do have decent prospects this season and some hope for the long term with a good set of young players that's headlined by Patrik Laine.

Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice has one more season remaining on his current contract.

Jets GM Kevin Chevaldayoff said after the 2016-17 campaign that Maurice had his "full support," but a new deal has not been announced yet. This could be a do-or-die season for Maurice, as the team has missed the playoffs for two years in a row. He has coached the Jets for parts of the last four seasons.

The Winnipeg Jets have announced an affiliation with the ECHL expansion team Jacksonville IceMen.

The Jets' previous ECHL affiliate was the Tulsa Oilers. Tulsa head coach Jason Christie will now be Jacksonville's bench boss instead. Christie has a 547-349-111 record in his ECHL career and has more wins than any other coach in the league's history.

The Winnipeg Jets have left Toby Enstrom and Marko Dano unprotected.

The Jets did protect the following players: Joel Armia, Andrew Copp, Bryan Little, Adam Lowry, Mathieu Perreault, Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien, Tyler Myers, Jacob Trouba and Connor Hellebuyck. Although Enstrom (who will likely be out of action for much of the first half of the 2017-18 season) and Dano may interest Vegas Golden Knight GM George McPhee, there are other options here. Backup goalie Michael Hutchinson or forwards Quinton Howden or JC Lipon may also be considered.

Jets head coach Paul Maurice isn't impressed with his team's current six-game winning streak.

The Jets have defeated Winnipeg, New Jersey, Anaheim, Ottawa, St. Louis and Columbus, but that doesn't change the fact that they'll miss the playoffs. "I don't put any more stock into our team game at this time of year than almost exhibition," Maurice said. "I'm not looking at this and saying, 'Hey, we've won six in a row, we're right there -- we're starting the season next year 6-0.'"

The Jets are having a devil of a time keeping the puck out of their own net.

The last time the Jets kept an opposing team to less than three goals in a game was January 9th, a span of 15 games. It does not seem to matter if it's Ondrej Pavelec, Connor Hellebuyck or Michael Hutchinson in goal. The results are the same.

The Jets appear ready to extend Paul Maurice's tenure with the club this summer.

The long-time coach is in his fourth season with Winnipeg, and has posted a 116-99-30 record with a playoff appearance thus far. While he's become known for his underwhelming talent utilization, he's also had terrible goalies who've posted a collective .904 in 20 years of NHL coaching. There's no word yet how many years the Jets are interested in giving him, but they at least seem intent on preventing a "lame duck" situation for the 2017-18 campaign.
Jan 15 - 1:56 PM

The Winnipeg Jets are struggling to kill penalties right now.

They allowed the Panthers to score three power play goals on Thursday night and they've give up at least one goal on the man-advantage in each of their last four games. Only the Blackhawks and Sabres have been worse on the penalty kill in 2016-17. Fantasy GMs need to keep that in mind when opponents take on the Jets.

Winnipeg has brought in Todd Woodcroft to serve as an assistant coach.

Woodcroft will be Sweden's special assignment coach at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. He has also served as a video coach as well as scouting director and professional scout at the NHL level.

Winnipeg holds three of the top 36 picks at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

The Jets have two selections in the first round, including the second and 22nd overall picks. They are expected to take Patrik Laine at pick No. 2 should the Maple Leafs go with consensus No. 1 choice Auston Matthews.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff admitted that he was nervous during the draft lottery.

Winnipeg was one of the lucky teams in the lottery. They moved up from sixth overall to second and Cheveldayoff admitted he was nervous as the results were being shown. "At least you knew you weren't going to move backwards in the order and (at six), that's when the heart starts pumping and the legs start shaking a little," Cheveldayoff said in a telephone interview from Toronto. "I couldn't even tell you who was the team that came up." Although we won't know until the draft actually takes place, there's a good chance the Jets will land Finnish prospect Patrik Laine with the second pick.

Despite finishing 24th overall in the League during 2015-16, the Winnipeg Jets won the second overall slot in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Assuming that Toronto goes with consensus top-pick Auston Matthews first overall, that'll leave Winnipeg to choose between stand-out Finns Patrick Laine and Jesse Puljujarvi. What a great position to be in.

The Winnipeg Jets have been surprisingly bad at home in 2015-16.

Only the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks have worse winning percentages on home ice than the Jets. The MTS Center has been a difficult place to play for several reasons including the loud crowd. "The season is a loss," head coach Paul Maurice said. "Had we been better at home it would not have been enough to make the playoffs. It was a home and away issue. The home record was not the failing point of the season."

The Winnipeg Jets will host the Edmonton Oilers in a Heritage Classic game in October 2016.

Expect the league to make an official announcement on Sunday afternoon. The game will be played at Investors Group Field and it should take place on the weekend of Oct. 22-23. There will be an alumni game on the Saturday followed by the regular season game on Sunday. "It will be unbelievable. To have an outdoor game in a city like this is definitely going to be very special," said Jets centre Mark Scheifele. "A lot of guys are pretty excited for that."
