Altitude Check: Tuesday December 20, 2011 Winnipeg Jets Headlines

Hey all! This is a feature running Monday through Friday that will bring you up to date on what's going on in the media pertaining to the Winnipeg Jets.

Here are your headlines for Tuesday December 20, 2011:

Two steps forward, one step back. After Nikolai Antropov, Tobias Enstrom and Alexander Burmistrov retruned to the line-up Saturday, the Winnipeg Jets lost the services of Bryan LIttle after he took a puck to the back of his leg. His current status is day-to-day as he will be re-evaluated today. [WFP]

Antti Miettinen will make his much awaited Jets debut tonight. [WFP]

Jets vs. Islanders game preview. [CBS Sports]

Our SB Nation pals over at Lighthouse Hockey take the Boston Globe online blog to task regarding their reporting of the "personal demons" affecting Islander prospect Corey Trivino. [Lighthouse Hockey]

As previously noted on AIH, the Jets have reassigned Jason Jaffray to St. John's of the AHL. [London Free Press]

Check out Chris Mason's slick new set-up! [Backhand Shelf]

Careful buying your Jets tickets second hand, they could be stolen. [CTV]

Still have Christmas shopping to do for friends and loved ones? Get them Jets gear, it seems like everyone is doing it! [Winnipeg Sun]

The Canadian World Junior team downed Team Finland last night by a score of 3-1. Winnipeg Jets prospect Mark Scheifele was held pointless, playing alongside forwards Devante Smith-Pelly and Tanner Pearson. [TSN]

Finally, not Winnipeg Jet related but watch Florida Panthers prospect Jacob Markstrom as he gets his groove on during a glass repair between the AHL's San Antonio Rampage and Texas Stars. I didn't know North American arenas still pumped out the Venga Boys, but I'm going to have an awful hard time getting it out of my head for the rest of the week. [Puck Daddy]
