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 Friday, January 18, 2013:

Tim Campbell wonder's if Winnipeg's dreadful team defense will see marked improvement this year. One would hope, but the success of Ondrej Pavelec will be the linchpin between pass and fail. [WFP]

Despite the misleading title to his article, Paul Friesen concurs with Campbell. [Winnipeg Sun]

Good news everyone! Nik Antropov could be ready to go for tomorrow's contest: "We'll see how it responds. Today it felt good. I'm optimistic for the weekend." Bets on him scoring the first goal? [WFP]

How will the Jets' fare in year two? Well, it's apparently as predictable as Evander Kane's tweets. ZING! [Winnipeg Sun]

Here's a rich topic for debate: should the Jets push cash towards the funding shortfall of Winnipeg museums?

For all your Ottawa Senators news leading up to tomorrow's game, make sure you visit our pals at Silver Seven. They do some really nice work. [Silver Seven]

Everything is bigger in Texas, so why not hire former Dallas Stars' Mike Modano and Marty Turco to run the joint!? Not only that but they also brought in a revered doctor in Mark Recchi, PhD. [Defending Big D]

PK Subban is nowhere closer to a new contract which no doubt has Montreal Canadiens' fans ready to claw their eyes out with rusty hooks. [SB Nation]

Behold! The Evolution of Brent Burns! [Puck Daddy]
