Altitude Check: Wednesday, May 23, 2012 Winnipeg Jets News Headlines


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 Wednesday, May 23, 2012:

Global Warming! The Ice Caps are done. They got smashed last night 4-0. Eddie Pasquale did his best stopping 38 of 42 shots. Scheifele drew into the lineup for this one, Machacek remained out. The home crowd cheered loud. [The AHL]

Here is the game summary. *Spoiler Alert* There are lots of zeros next to the Ice Caps players. [The AHL]

In Jets news, Mark Chipman and handed a big cheque to charity! $100,000 is a lot of money, but it sounds a lot less awesome when you equate it to 7.13 games of Randy Jones (about 3 free pizzas). [WFP]

More Chipman, this time preaching patience. Expect a slow build folks! [WFP]

The Yotes are also done. The game ended with heavy drama in OT with a GWG from the pancake man. [NHL]

With the end of the Yotes season comes the end of Oliver Ekman-Larsson's undervalued season. [NHL Numbers]

Another interesting piece from NHL Numbers about the impact of Zone Starts on production. [NHL Numbers]
