Altitude Check: Friday, May 4, 2012 Winnipeg Jets News Headlines

I am not sure what is going on here! Please stop puck... Please not be a bear...

Hey all! Here is our 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 and elsewhere in the NHL.

Here is what's in the news for Friday, May 4, 2012:

Andrew Ladd and Evander Kane get rolling today in the World Hockey Championships. Neither was cut and according to this article, Alexander Burmistrov is still a go for Russia. As I type this the score is tied 1-1 midway through the 2nd period. [WPF]

Update: According to the official roster, Burmi is not on the team.

Peppered Pasquale proving his worth. Jets prospect Eddie Pasquale has been doing a great job for our AHL affiliate. He has been busy and has stolen a number of games. If he can keep this up he should be able to land some NHL ice time in the next few years. [The Telegram]

Winnipeg Jets’ own Jim Slater has been named Assistant Captain of Team USA. [WPF]

Then there is this little tid bit that will surely cost a few fans a few dollars.

How many of our readers have Bogo jerseys? I was very close to getting #4 on an away jersey.

Earlier this week Corey Pronman from Hockey Prospectus put together a list his top 5 prospects. Teuvo Teravainen lands in the 5th spot meanwhile, many experts suspect he may be in play for our squad. [Puck Prospectus]

Winnipeg boy Jordan Tootoo receives some high praise. I personally fail to see how replacing a 1st line player with a 4th liner is an upgrade, but I am not mass media. Tootoo is a UFA at the end of the year. I could see him being on Chevy’s radar. [The Tennessean]

The folk at Flams Nation did a little bit of analysis on the recent addition to their squad Roman Cervenka. I am intrigued by this signing simply because these moves don’t happen very often. Not to mention $4 million for a player who has never laced em up on this side of the Atlantic. [Flames Nation]
