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.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
