Scheifele excited for second Hockeyville game

BELLEVILLE, Ontario -- Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele is having his second experience at Kraft Hockeyville.

The Jets earned a 3-1 victory against the Ottawa Senators in 2011 at Mile One Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland. He expected a similar atmosphere against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night (7 p.m. ET, CBC, NHL Network-U.S.).

"It's pretty fun," Scheifele said. "Two years ago playing in St. John's was a pumped-up building. It was a fun building to play in and we're looking forward to a good hockey game, for sure.

"It's unbelievable and it's a great idea. They do a good job at it, and I'm sure the crowd's going to do a great job as well. It'll give us that much more energy to feed off of."

Scheifele will open the preseason skating on Winnipeg's top line with Evander Kane and Devin Setoguchi as the Jets face the Washington Capitals in the Kraft Hockeyville game at Yardmen Arena.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
