Jets reassign five to St. John's

The Winnipeg Jets on Monday reassigned five players to the club's American Hockey League team, St. John’s IceCaps.

Sent down were defensemen Ben Chiarot and Julian Melchiori, left wing Carl Klingberg and goalie Michael Hutchinson. Right wing Jerome Samson also is slated to head to St. John's, but first must clear waivers.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
