Friday Papers

Friday Papers, February 22nd Jets and NHL news

Note: Tune into the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN Radio 1290 as the guys discuss all the latest Winnipeg Jets and NHL news from 6 am to 9 am on Saturday (That is not a typo. With the Flyers game starting at noon, the guys are getting up early to provide you with all the latest news). Guest: Anthony SanFilippo (

Jets news:

- Jets have recalled defenceman Julian Melchiori from the St. Johnís IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Winnipeg Free Press: Every game, a very good Ladd shows why heís captain. Not sure I see Ladd as a lighting rod on this team but he has definitely blossomed in his role of leader of this team. In his 500th NHL game he had a night to remember and helped his squad to an important victory.

Winnipeg Free Press: Ugly, scary day ends with nice win on ice. While it seems too early to be calling Ďmust winsí last night sure seemed of that variety. They took a clean two points from a division rival and more importantly did not wilt after quickly giving up a tying goal once they took the lead. Coach Noel still has room for improvement.

Winnipeg Free Press: They won one for Zach. An injured team mate can be a powerful motivator and while the horrendous injury to young defenceman Zach Redmond clearly impacted the team, they showed good resolve in knocking off the Hurricanes.

TSN: Jets end difficult day with win over Hurricanes. There are still a number of problem areas that coach Noel is going to need to fix but for the second straight game Winnipeg had a strong penalty kill (3/3) and Ondrej Pavelec kept his team in the game.

Winnipeg Sun: Snapshots Ė winning ugly but who cares. At the end of the day a win is a win and as long as you have 2 points in your pocket, not many remember if the win was pretty or not. Paul also touches on Redmondís injury, masked adventures, captain Laddís storybook evening, shaky start, Blunt Blake Wheeler and 5 on 3 blues.

Winnipeg Sun: Redmond resting after surgery on femoral artery. It was a scary incident which deeply affected the team. Following the victory coach Noel spoke how it was clear to him that his team was still feeling the effect of seeing their team mate injured.

CBC: Captain Ladd leading the way. While he is being asked to play above his natural fit, until this team improves via the draft or trade, he is going to have to play those types of minutes/situations.

Illegal Curve: Jets on a Deadline Ė Jets 4 Hurricanes 3. Game recaps, video highlights and the 3 Stars of the night.

Yahoo Canada: Why the WHL would work in Winnipeg. Looks like the WHL has a couple of struggling clubs that could call the MTS Centre home. Would be fun to have a friendly rivalry with Brandon.

NHL news:

Columbus Dispatch: Anisimov is stable, alert and moving. Two extremely distressing on-ice injuries yesterday. While the Jets Redmondís didnít happen in front of the cameras, Anisimovís happened during the Red Wings and Blue Jackets game. It looked extremely scary at the time and it is good to hear that he is doing better. For those that missed the play where Anisimov was injured here is a link.

Edmonton Journal: Twitterverse reacts to Taylor Hallís hit on Clutterbuck. Taylor Hall should expect to be hit by the Shanaban as most of the hockey world felt it was a dirty, knee on knee hit.

Ottawa Citizen: Senators lose star goalie Anderson. As if losing Karlsson and Spezza wasnít enough, it looks like they might be without the services of number one goalie Craig Anderson for awhile.

Globe and Mail: Brian Burke takes scouting job with Anaheim. Going back to where he had his greatest success, Burke and the Leafs have terminated their relationship as he moves onÖor back to the Ducks.
