Jets send forward John Albert to St. John's following eight-game stint

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have re-assigned forward John Albert to the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Albert, 24, appeared in his first NHL game and scored his first goal on Dec. 2 versus the New York Rangers. He did not get another point during his eight-game stint with the Jets.

Albert has three goals and five assists in 23 games with St. John's this season.

He was originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the sixth round, 175th overall, in the 2007 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
