Paul Friesen's take on a controversy between Claude Noel and Eric Fehr which broke on Monday after Noel called Fehr out in the media and the team denied reporter access to Fehr afterwards: "It’s just the latest example of a team trying to control the message, which, as former Blue Bomber boss Mike Kelly discovered a couple years back, is pointless, not to mention impossible — unless they want to hire robots as players and coaches. Even then, we wretches of the press would find something wrong with the robots." [Winnipeg Sun]

Winnipeg Jets prospects (and Barrie Colt line-mates) Mark Scheifele and Ivan Telegin will be in direct competition tonight as Canada plays Russia in World Junior Semifinal No. 2.

Note: Telegin is a game time decision for Russia due to a wrist/hand injury he suffered last night versus the Czech Republic. [CBC]
