Altitude Check: Wednesday December 14, 2011 Winnipeg Jets Headlines

Hey all! This is a new 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 Wednesday December 14, 2011:

After a disappointing showing Saturday night, the Jets bounced back at home against the Wild. Per Claude Noel: "There's no easy games, we're proving that at least at home and we're having some success but when we eventually get back to the road games, we've got to find a way to get our road record back to .500 (they are 4-8-4 outside Manitoba) and that should give us a little bit of a chance."

A Minnesota Wild point of view: "In a game that made you wish realignment could start tomorrow instead of a year from now, the Wild and Winnipeg Jets were introduced Tuesday night and it wasn't for the faint of heart." [Star Tribune]

Our friends over at Hockey Wilderness debate what punishment - if any - should be dolled out for Zach Bogosion's hit from behind on Pierre-Marc Bouchard. Bogosian was given a five minute major and a game misconduct for his actions, and this would be the second time this year that his physical play gets him in hot water. After his hit on Cody Eakin in November, it's of my opinion that "The Shannahammer" will give Bogosian at least a fine, if not a 1-game suspension. [Hockey Wilderness]

As previously discussed here at Arctic Ice Hockey, the Winnipeg Jets have claimed Antti Miettinen off waivers. When can Jets fans expect him in the line-up? [WFP]

Team Canada makes their final cuts for their World Junior roster. Brett Bulmer, Phil Di Giuseppe, Louis Domingue,Tyler Toffoli, Codi Ceci, Alex Petrovic, Tyler Bunz, Ryan Murphy, Christian Thomas, Joe Morrow, Ty Rattie, Brad Ross and Phillip Danault were all part of final cuts today. Congrats to Winnipeg Jets Prospect Mark Scheifele for making the team this year. Stay tuned to Arctic Ice Hockey over the holiday season as we will bring you plenty of World Junior hockey coverage.[Twitter, via Mark Masters]

Finally, Pat Hickey was on TSN990 yesterday defending his stance on Theoren Fleury when he dropped this bombshell. "Abuse thrives on silence. In some cases, […] the silence of third parties gives perpetrators license. But victims’ silence also plays a huge role." He later scoffed at a caller who asked if his stance on this issue is making it harder for others who suffer from abuse to speak out. Just let it go, man. This PR is going to end your career. [Tumblr]
