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, September 25, 2012:

Super awesome news for fans of Brian Sutherby (ie: me): The St. John's IceCaps have signed him to a PTO contract heading into training camp. The Washington Capitals selected Sutherby twenty-sixth in the first round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. [The Telegram]

The Stephenville Dome is getting ready for some AHL pre-season hockey. [The Georgian]

Jim Slater has joined the list of players currently working out in Winnipeg. "I’m paying on my condo now and so I might as well live in it. It’s a great city. I like being here, I like the people so that’s my plan for the rest of the time." [WFP]

Ted Wyman opines that moderate NHL owners have no say on the current labour dispute. To further his point, neither does Terry Pegula, one of the leagues richest owners. [Winnipeg Sun]

Missed in yesterday's news, the locked-out Winnipeg Jets were physically locked out of the MTS Iceplex. Turns out the only duplicate key was held inside the MTS Centre, a dead-zone for NHL players. [WFP]

Mike Luck of the Atlanta Journal Constitution asks if any Atlantans have noticed the NHL is locked out again. Surprisingly, many have -- and they all loathe Gary Bettman. [AJC]

Hey, look at that, SB Nation United is here! If you don't like it, too bad. The dinosaurs didn't adapt and now they're dead. Adapt or die. [SB Nation]

After being called cattle by Jim Devellano, Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic responds: "I guess I must be Grade A prime beef. I think we're pretty good cattle if you're looking at it that way". Touché, Jimmy. [Puck Daddy]

In which Bruce Arthur brilliantly compares the comments of Devellano to those made by Mitt Romney. [Calgary Herald]

Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens has signed with Ambri Piotta of the Suisse-A League. [HEOTP]

Dan Ellis is hoping that someone, anyone will take a chance on resuscitating his career. [SB Nation]

This is what makes Pavel Datsyuk so amazing. The most outstanding goal that didn't count. [Puck Daddy]
