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 groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
