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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
