Best of 2016-17 | Mic'd Up

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

Episode 1

Video: MIC'D UP | Chase De Leo

"Go have some more chips!"

Quote of the year?

Episode 2

Video: MIC'D UP | Nikolaj Ehlers

"It's OK, buddy. It's OK."

Nobody had more fun (and showed more compassion for a downtrodden teammate) than Nikolaj at the annual skills competition.

His countless interactions with all the young fans at rink side were priceless, too.

Oh, in and case you're unfamiliar with certain domestic bird calls, that's a pigeon noise Nik and the rest are belting out around each other.

Episode 3

Video: MIC'D UP | Jacob Trouba

It doesn't matter how old they are, what kind of shape they're in or how times they've done it before: Hockey players DREAD the 'bag skate.'

Jacob is no exception, and you'll see why.

"Not often you get to skate a guy like this - a 25-minute guy, eh, Huds (Assistant Coach Charlie Huddy)?" - Head Coach Paul Maurice

Episode 4

Video: MIC'D UP | Marko Dano

"Poppin' bottles! Thirsty?!"

The players tend to get a bit nervous with the cameras on them all practice, but Marko was a natural - and he made darn sure we got the shot of him scoring his first goal after some tough breaks early on.

Practice or not, these guys are competitive.

Episode 5

Video: MIC'D UP | Mark Scheifele

We saved the best for last. For the first time EVER, JetsTV was given exclusive access to mic a player during a regular-season game.

Mark isn't much of a trash talker, but his words of encouragement, fun-loving attitude and candid conversations with the officials made this one of our all-time favourites.

(Side note: How sharp are those Heritage Classic jerseys?!)
