Five games into his tenure as Winnipeg Jets’ interim head coach, Dave Lowry has begun to make his own mark on the talented but underachieving team he took over three weeks ago.

As the New Year changes over, there are lots of storylines, stats, and milestones still being reached every day. A ton happened with the Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues in their last games, while some other players and teams also have been leaving their mark. Penguins’ Hat Tricks, Goals, & Streaks Evan Rodrigues recorded
The Winnipeg Jets are quickly gaining a reputation as a slump-buster for struggling NHL squads, and too frequently, are proving to be the cure for what ails teams in desperate need of a win. Jets Playing Down to Their Opponents Too Often Tuesday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres is a prime example. The Atlantic Division
A a familiar face could be the perfect person to improve the Winnipeg Jets coaching staff. That familiar face? None other than Nolan Baumgartner. Baumgartner has recently found himself out of work. He served as Vancouver Canucks’ assistant coach since 2017-18, working alongside head coach Travis Green. On Sunday, the 45-year-old was a casualty of
It’s the seventh edition of the Weekly Lost & Found, and today’s journey takes us mostly through the Central Division. Though we like to spread out our reports, sometimes hot and cold trends all fall in a similar spot. Inconsistency was a problem for those lost, while goaltending has been a highlight for those found.
After a 5-1-1 homestand where they finally began to play to their potential, the Winnipeg Jets have lost their past three games.

Last January, Winnipeg Jets’ General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff pulled the trigger on the biggest trade of his career, sending disgruntled winger Patrik Laine and centre Jack Roslovic to the Columbus Blue Jackets for Pierre-Luc Dubois, who coincidentally was also not happy with his situation in Ohio. All three players were first-round draft picks, but the
The Winnipeg Jets have shown through the first month of the season that they are a playoff team and deserve to be in the conversation of Stanley Cup contenders, but they have one Achilles’ heel that is anything but subtle or secretive. Their ability to defend… let me rephrase that. Their inability to defend the
The Winnipeg Jets host the Edmonton Oilers in the last of a seven-game homestand that has seen the Jets successfully defend home ice by taking nine of 12 available points with a 4-1-1 record over the first six contests. They now face the Oilers, who possess an impressive 11-3-0 record in a back-to-back situation where
When Andrew Copp first broke into the NHL, his role with the Winnipeg Jets wasn’t exactly ideal. Playing bottom-six minutes behind better-known names isn’t exactly a recipe for success, and that was reflected via Copp’s production in his five seasons in the league. Now, following some much-needed roster turnover, Copp seems to be thriving in
About three weeks ago, I predicted the Winnipeg Jets should come out of October with at least 11 points out of a possible 16. With two trips to California and a seemingly soft start to the season, the offensively laden Jets looked to easily enter November with a minimum record of 5-2-1. It turns out
The Chicago Blackhawks scouting staff finally gets to take center stage in a few days as the NHL Entry Draft is nearly upon us. While they are preparing to add more prospects to the system, a former draft pick is coming along nicely overseas. Finally, for those dreaming of a reunion with an old friend,
While his NHL debut was somewhat unexpected, Winnipeg Jets’ top prospect Cole Perfetti made it count with a solid performance against the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday. Perfetti’s Debut a Bright Spot in Disappointing Game Against Ducks Perfetti, who was only told on Tuesday he’d be in the lineup, skated on the third line right wing,
The true Winnipeg Jets fan knows the worth of Andrew Copp. The rest of the hockey world may not. The 27-year-old forward is entering his seventh full NHL season, all with the Jets and has put himself in a position to be a key ingredient in the team’s success and push in the Central Division.
The 2021-22 Winnipeg Jets’ offensive roster is loaded with talent, grit and a myriad of scoring options. One key component to the success of this teams’ offence moving forward correlates directly to the anticipated resurgence of Pierre-Luc Dubois. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound left winger is coming off an admittedly disappointing season where his offensive totals markedly
After totaling 50 points in 56 games last season, Kyle Connor also led the Winnipeg Jets in goals, demonstrating why he is one of the best players on the team. His 26 goals ranked ninth among NHL scoring leaders in 2020-21. In 2019-20, he recorded a career-high 38 goals and 73 points in 71 games.
With training camp just over a week away, the Winnipeg Jets are looking to build on a successful but unfulfilling 2020-21 season. Being 12th in the league in scoring and having the core of their offensive arsenal intact, scoring should not be a problem for this team. Mark Scheifele has scored at better than a
