Eddie Pasquale practises with Jets for first time since being called up from AHL

WINNIPEG - Eddie Pasquale is ready to step on the ice in his first NHL game if called upon.

The 22-year-old was called up from the AHL earlier this week because Winnipeg backup netminder Al Montoya is injured.

Coach Claude Noel says Montoya isn't just out for a day or two and will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

Noel says Pasquale has shown a lot of poise and he has confidence in him.

The coach also says forward Eric Tangradi, picked up this week from Pittsburgh, should see action in Friday's game against the Penguins.

It's still uncertain whether defenceman Zach Bogosian will play but he says he feels ready to return following off-season wrist surgery.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
