GameDay Thread: Winnipeg Jets at Calgary Flames

Talk your hockey here.

Derek Leung

The season is nigh and the Winnipeg Jets roster is coming into shape. Well, it is supposed to be. Injuries have kicked that plan in the pants. Paul Maurice is without both his number one centre and top right wing. Luckily for Jets fans, the kids are here to save the day!

Nic Petan and Nikolaj Ehlers will be playing big minutes tonight. Regardless of what else happens, this will be fun.

The game will be broadcast on TSN3 tonight and can be heard on TSN 1290.

Possible (likely) Line-ups:

Winnipeg Jets

Evander Kane - Mark Scheifele - Nikolaj Ehlers

Andrew Ladd - Nicolas Petan - Michael Frolik

Adam Lowry - Mathieu Perreault - Matt Halischuk

Eric Tangradi - Jim Slater - Chris Thorburn

Grant Clitsome - Zach Bogosian

Jacob Trouba - Mark Stuart

Adam Pardy - Keaton Ellerby

Michael Hutchinson

Danny Taylor

Calgary Flames

Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Jiri Hudler

Sven Baertschi - Joe Colborne - Josh Jooris

Byron-Sam Bennett - Devin Setoguchi

Curtis Glencross - Matt Stajan - Brian McGrattan

TJ Brodie - Mark Giordano

Russell - Deryk Engelland

Ladislav Smid - Dennis Wideman

Kari Ramo

Jonas Hiller

Players to Watch

As has been the case for much of the preseason, all eyes will be on Nic Petan and Nikolaj Ehlers. Many prognosticators suspect they will be sent back to junior, but they are still here and they are skating with skill players. A strong showing by either kid could extend their stay. It will also be interesting to watch Adam Lowry along side Mathieu Perreault. That pairing may last into the regular season.
