There isn't a ton of Jets news flowing these days, but Team USA is getting some ice time and that means Winnipeg Jets prospect Jacob Trouba is keeping busy. He netted an assist yesterday. [USA Hockey]
In other Jets news, Ben did put together a very thorough season preview for the home team. Don't worry guys, he crapped all over Ondrej Pavelec, so you can still love / hate him for that. [NHL Numbers]
In another fun project CBS Sports attempts to figure out which teams use Advanced Stats. Somehow the Vancouver Canucks didn't make the cut despite Gillis admitting as much. Meanwhile, they list the Flames and a couple sucky South East Division teams as probable users. ...maybe these number don't work so well after all.
In other news, AIH has instituted a new dress code for readers and writers alike. We don't want things getting too formal in here:

@wfpedtait we also still listen to music on vinyl and wear matching jean short cutoffs.
Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend!
