Winnipeg jets send 10 to AHL, see enough from prospects to cut Ian White

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets are releasing veteran forward Ian White from his professional tryout with the team.

The Jets also sent 10 other players to their American Hockey League affiliate.

Coach Claude Noel says they have seen enough from the young players already in their system so they decided to let White go.

It leaves 37 players still in camp, including 2013 draft pick Josh Morrissey.

At just 18, Morrissey hasn't looked out of place among some of the more seasoned prospects in camp.

The Jets are playing Minnesota again Saturday after dropping a 4-1 decision to the Wild last Thursday night.

Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
