Jets send 2013 top pick Morrissey back to junior team

The Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday trimmed five players from their training camp roster.

Among those leaving the club is defenseman Joshua Morrissey, the team's first-round pick (No. 13) at the 2013 NHL Draft. He was returned to his junior team, the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League.

The Jets also sent five players to their American Hockey League team, the St. John's IceCaps: Forwards Adam Lowry, Eric O'Dell, Ivan Telegin and Andrew Gordon. Gordon must clear waivers before he can be assigned.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
