Last season's NHL debut is fuelling Jack Roslovic in camp

Coach Maurice plans to get the young centre into preseason action soon

by Mitchell Clinton @MClinton007 / WinnipegJets.com

Jack Roslovic's first NHL game was a dream come true.

Not only is it a fond memory for the 20-year-old, but it was a historical evening for the young centre who grew up just minutes away from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH.

That night, as the Winnipeg Jets skated to a 5-4 win over the Blue Jackets, Roslovic became the first home grown player to participate in an NHL game.

It's a memory that motivated him all off-season.

Jets, Wild combine for 17 power plays in preseason opener

Ryan Malone scores shootout winner as Wild top Jets in a shootout

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The signs were all there that it would be a special teams extravaganza before the Winnipeg Jets played their first preseason game Monday against the Minnesota Wild at Bell MTS Place.

On Sunday, the Vancouver Canucks and Vegas Golden Knights opened their NHL preseason with a combined 17 power plays.

Seventeen turned out to be the magic number as well in a 3-2 shootout loss for the Jets, who went 2-for-10 with the man advantage.

"Thirty-three minutes of 5-on-5 time. We knew that going in," said Head Coach Paul Maurice. "It was true to form of all the other games; really, really high penalty totals."

WINNIPEG - After four consecutive days of practice and intense off-ice workouts, the Winnipeg Jets finally took to the ice for their first test of the preseason, giving Head Coach Paul Maurice and the rest of the staff their first look at the squad in game action.

Make no mistake: It was a preseason game, all right - sloppy and penalty filled after a long summer off - but the very sight of the boys in blue carving the ice in downtown Winnipeg was just the start of what we've all been waiting for.

Hockey season. It's back, baby.

Unfortunately for the Jets, Night 1 didn't go their way.

Ryan Malone scored the only goal in the shootout while goaltender Steve Michalek stopped all three Winnipeg shooters as the Minnesota Wild took a 3-2 win Monday at Bell MTS Place.

Sgarbossa ready, excited for Jets debut

Forward will wear No. 4, and will skate on the fourth line between Brendan Lemieux & Marko Dano

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - It will be a veteran-laden lineup for the Winnipeg Jets tonight against the Minnesota Wild, but there are some new guys to keep an eye out for at Bell MTS Place.

Michael Sgarbossa signed a one-year deal with the Jets in the summer after splitting time last season between Anaheim and Florida. In his 38 NHL contests last year, the winger recorded nine points, 33 shots on goal and 39 hits.

The Ontario native will wear No. 4. When was the last time you saw a forward wear a number lower than seven?

"I get that a lot," Sgarbossa said in the dressing room following Monday's morning skate. "For me, it was my minor hockey number growing up. But it was also my favourite number, I grew up a big fan of Bobby Orr."

Confident Jets excited for pre-season opener

Jets host Wild Monday at Bell MTS Place (7:00pm CT, TSN3; TSN1290)

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The enthusiasm, confidence and plain ol' positive energy in the Winnipeg locker room is impossible to miss right now.

On Saturday - the first of the dogged 15-day grind we call Training Camp - left wing Shawn Matthias called this the best team ever he's played on.

Like, ever ever.

Indeed, there's plenty to be excited about here on the eve of the pre-season, but the Jets aren't letting that get in the way of the task at hand. As Dustin Byfuglien put it so poignantly following Sunday's hour-and-a-half-long practice at Bell MTS Iceplex, "We haven't done nothin' yet."

Hendricks teaching Matthias new tricks off the ice

WINNIPEG - Shawn Matthias may have a new off-ice hobby, thanks to new teammate Matt Hendricks.

"I hung out with Hendricks the other day and Big Buff, we went and shot some arrows, and I now have a bow. I don't know why, but I have a bow now," said Matthias. "I guess I have to learn how to hunt now."

Hendricks, 36, picked up the sport during his four seasons in Edmonton, before signing his one-year deal with the Winnipeg Jets on August 26.

"(He's) figuring out how to use it, and how to hit the bullseye. It's a lot of fun," said Hendricks. "It's something to kind of take your mind away from the game a bit, shoot some targets, and enjoy it. It's something you can pass down to your kids."

Hurricane Harvey hits close to home for Tyler Myers

Jets defenceman's mother and half brother reside in Houston, TX

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - When hurricanes as big as Irma and Harvey hit land they have an effect on more than just the people in Florida and Texas.

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tyler Myers is one of those people with his mother and half brother living in in the city of Houston.

"They're ok, they are clear of any damage but obviously shut down for awhile while the city cleans up a little bit," said Myers. "I've talked to them a little bit to see how things are going and getting some updates on what's going on. It sounds like there is a lot of support around the States and even in Canada to as well. I'm just hoping it clears up as soon as possible."

Myers went on to say they talk about the photos that we all see on the news and that he tries to provide as much support as he can from far away. But while it's tough knowing she is in a city that is just starting to rebuild he is relieved to know his family members are in a less damaged area of Houston.
