Jets news: Antropov returned to KHL. Via google translate so bear with me, but it appears to say he remains in North America to train but wants to return to the KHL after he got a taste of it during the lockout.

- According to Scott Brown, Senior Director of Corporate Communications for the Jets a couple of items of interest for Winnipeg fans as the game time for the November 29th away game against the Flyers has been moved to 10:30 am CST. Also the four newest members of the Jets have selected new numbers as follows: Devin Setoguchi 40, Michael Frolik 67, Matt Halischuk 15 and Adam Pardy 2.

Jets official site: Frolik welcomes Stanley Cup to Czech Republic. Always interesting to read what the players are doing with the Cup during their time with Lord Stanley’s Mug. Fans in Winnipeg should be happy to hear how accommodating he was when meeting his hometown fans and also his comments about competing for a higher role in Winnipeg next season. Choosing hockey has proven right path for Copp. It is not easy being a two sport athlete and it seems that the decision to focus on one sport is proving to be a solid decision for the prospect.

Hockey Canada National Junior Team: Canada 5 Finland 3. Over in Lake Placid, NY the Canadians played their first game and defeated Finland, backstopped by the Jets Eric Comrie who made 37 of 40 saves for the victory. Neither Winnipeg prospect (Petan or Morrissey) ended up with any points in the win. Canada takes on Sweden today who are fresh off a victory over Team USA.

USA Hockey: Sweden 4 USA 0. Jets prospect Andrew Copp and his USA teammates couldn’t overcome Swedish goalie Marcus Högberg.
