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 Tuesday, October 9, 2012:

The College Hockey News has named Jacob Trouba it's number two player to watch. Lofty expectations! [College Hockey News]

Mark Scheifele has his phasers set to stun so far this season as he's currently among the OHL scoring leaders: "[Jets' management] told me that I need to get bigger and stronger, and that is what I’m trying to do. I’m just trying to dominate each game and be a big force out there, and that’s what I have been focusing on." [Toronto Observer]

The St. John's IceCaps made another round of roster cuts on Monday, the most interesting name being that of Cody Sol. [The Telegram]

Keith McCambridge talks a little of the joys of being a professional coach: "It’s such a chess match, not only with the opposition coach but with your team, making sure you’re saying the right thing to each individual, pushing the right buttons and not making moves without taking a look about how it might affects three or four other people or how it affects your team in two or three weeks. I’ve enjoyed every day of it. I’m trying to get better and making sure I’m not complacent." [Winnipeg Sun]

Rough and tumble Dean Arsene is hoping to clinch a roster spot with the Jets' farm club, and brings a wealth of Calder Cup experience to the table. [The Telegram]

Updates on the NHL lockout are few and far between /sarcasm. But it looks like both parties won't be talking economic issues this week. Collectively, fans of the game roll back from their computers, simultaneously face-palm and ask "then why the fuck are you meeting!?" [Toronto Star]

Why a 40-game NHL season could have disastrous consequences. Great Scott!, says Cam Charron. [Backhand Shelf]

Remember when the Phoenix Coyotes' ownership situation was all tied up with a nice little bow? Not so fast says the Phoenix Business Journals. For the sanity of Coyotes' fans, I can only hope this situation rectifies itself soon. [Puck Daddy]

Finally, Philadelphia Flyers' forward (/tongue twister) Jakub Voracek has been injured in KHL action and could have his contract revoked. [SB Nation]
