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, December 4, 2012:

As we reported yesterday, Mark Scheifele will attend Hockey Canada's World Junior Selection Camp which should conclude next Thursday. Considering Scheifele is a returnee from last year's team, his addition to the roster should be a foregone conclusion. [WFP]

Scheifele, for his part, is keeping modest until after the official roster is named: "If I make the team [I will play] wherever they put me. I would play goalie. Whatever would help the team, I’m ready to do." [Winnipeg Sun]

Mark Chipman will be one of the several owners taking part in tomorrows owners and players meeting. Andrew Ladd had nothing but positive things to say: "Hopefully, it makes a difference. If Mark had been involved in the whole process, we’d be having a different result right now." [Winnipeg Sun]

St. John's IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge has seen first hand some of the improvements his team has been making over the past few weeks: "Our top-end players have now really started to step to the forefront again and run our offence, give us a chance to be in games." [680 News]

The Swedish National U-20 team also unveiled their camp roster yesterday and will be without Ottawa Senators' prospect Mika Zibanejad. [SB Nation]

Our pals at Stanley Cup of Chowder explain why they can't quit the NHL. [SCOC]

Could the NHL lockout finally be over? Well, don't hold your breath. [Puck Daddy]

Finally, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be in elite company should he be selected to Canada's WJC roster. [Backhand Shelf]
