Chase De Leo and six others have been sent to AHL Manitoba by Winnipeg.

De Leo collected 14 goals and 18 assists in 69 matches with the Moose last year. Winnipeg also assigned Jamie Phillips, Sami Niku, Nelson Nogier, Mason Appleton, Jansen Harkins and Jimmy Lodge to the minors on Sunday.

Logan Stanley has been returned to Kitchener of the OHL.

Stanley had 17 points and 62 penalty minutes in 35 games for Windsor last year. The towering defenseman was the 18th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
Sep 24 - 2:15 PM

Julian Melchiori has been waived by the Winnipeg Jets.

Melchiori contributed two assists in 18 games with the Jets last season. Winnipeg also placed defenseman Cameron Schilling on waivers. If they both clear then they will be sent to Manitoba of the AHL.
Sep 24 - 2:10 PM

Michael Sgarbossa has been waived by Winnipeg.

Sgarbossa accounted for seven points in 29 matches for Florida last year. The Jets also put forward Buddy Robinson on waivers Sunday. He split time between Binghamton and San Jose in the minors last season, while dressing in four games with the Ottawa Senators.
Sep 24 - 1:51 PM

Michael Hutchinson has been put on waivers.

That was expected to happen, as the Jets will go with Steve Mason and Connor Hellebuyck in the crease this season. Hutchinson had a 9-12-3 record with a 2.92 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage in 28 appearances last year.
Sep 24 - 1:46 PM

Michael Spacek found the back of the net in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

The 20-year-old was selected in the fourth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Spacek got his first taste of professional hockey last year, as he suited up in four games with the AHL's Manitoba Moose. Expect him to head back to the minors before the start of the regular season.

The Winnipeg Jets have announced that Michael Hutchinson will play the entire game tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

It looks like the Jets goaltending situation will be another point of frustration for the Jets this season as they are currently slated to start the season with Steve Mason, Connor Helleybuyck and Michael Hutchinson on the opening night roster. Steve Mason will most likely get the first crack at being the starting netminder.
Sep 23 - 3:06 PM

Bryan Little missed Friday's practice due to a minor injury.

Details were not disclosed but the Jets didn't seem too concerned by it. Consider Little day-to-day for now.
Sep 23 - 1:16 PM

Joel Armia left Thursday's game with a minor undisclosed injury.

He did not practice Friday and should be considered day-to-day.
Sep 23 - 1:15 PM

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 22 of 23 shots in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Hellebuyck can't be faulted on the only goal he gave up, as his teammates allowed Jared Spurgeon to pinch in from the point before he roofed a shot high and blocker-side. The Jets signed Steve Mason to a two-year contract this summer, but Hellebuyck should still be considered the team's goalie of the future. It's a big year for the 24-year-old.
Sep 21 - 11:06 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have removed Leon Gawanke from their training camp roster.

Gawanke had eight goals and 32 points in 54 games with the QMJHL's Cape Breton Screaming Eagles last season. Winnipeg selected him with the 136th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
Sep 21 - 4:36 PM

Skyler McKenzie has been cut from the Winnipeg Jets' training camp roster.

McKenzie had 42 goals and 84 points in 72 games last season with the WHL's Portland Winterhawks. Winnipeg selected him with the 198th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
Sep 21 - 4:35 PM

Nic Petan has been seeing time on the wing at training camp.

Coach Paul Maurice believes the move will give Petan a better chance to make the team going into the regular season. "Playing the wing this year, it's a bit different but I'm coming in with a bit more of an offensive mindset," said Petan. "I'll make my plays, but try to get as many shots off as I can. Having the games played that I do and having more experience, I think I know what it takes now to finally play a full 60 minutes and a full 82 (games). My body is ready for it, I'm ready for it." He has registered three goals and 19 points in 80 games with the Jets over the past two seasons.
Sep 21 - 8:38 AM

Nikolaj Ehlers scored a goal in Winnipeg's 4-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

Ehlers scored the first goal of the game, but the Oilers responded by scoring four unanswered goals. Ehlers had a solid sophomore season in the NHL last year, as he scored 25 goals and 64 points in 82 games. It's reasonable to expect the 21-year-old to improve those numbers this season.
Sep 20 - 11:56 PM

Tyler Myers is back to 100 percent after he was limited to just 11 games last season.

"It was a tough recovery and a long road, but we got through it," said Myers of his groin issue. "I'm feeling good now and it's exciting for me to be back on the ice with the guys. You just have to put last year behind you and I don't feel like it's going to take too long to get back into the swing of things. Things are moving forward, looking up. I want to get back to helping the team." His son, Tristan, is also doing well after he was born five weeks prematurely and then suffered a stroke. Myers is ready to focus bouncing back for the upcoming season with the problems of last year behind him.
