AT THE MORNING SKATE

WINNIPEG – There they were – the “Czech Mafia” standing off to the side, presumably reminiscing about their childhood and the biggest of dreams that led them here. Together.

Years later and over 7,000 kilometres from Kladno, Jiri Tlusty, Michael Frolik and Ondrej Pavelec have all been reunited.

“I’m really excited. We’re great friends back home,” Tlusty, who missed most of the morning skate after an early arrival into Winnipeg, said standing in his new blue digs. “We grew up together and we still train together in the summertime, so it’s going to be a lot of fun to be on the same team.

“When I heard the news (about the trade), I was really excited. Leaving Raleigh was hard, but I’m really excited to be here and be part of the Jets. I played against them this year, twice. They were always in our faces. They play a really structured style and everyone was working really hard. It was really tough to play against the Jets and I’m really happy to be part of it now.”

Added Frolik: “It’s crazy that it happened. The ‘Czech Mafia’ has definitely gotten bigger. The team already didn’t like me and Pav (talking in Czech), and now we’ve got one more.

“We’re going to help him as much as we can, so we’ll all give him a hand with the systems, talk to him and hopefully he’ll fit in right away.”

WINNIPEG
– General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff announced earlier today that the Winnipeg Jets have acquired Jiri Tlusty from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a third-round pick in the
2016 NHL Draft, and a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2015 draft.

The conditional pick will become a fifth-rounder if the Jets make the playoffs this season.

“He has the ability to play with skilled players, the ability to play on the power-play and score some goals,” Cheveldayoff said. “He can play the left side or the right side, and that can be important as times goes on and you get into the stretch run. There’s also some familiarity with some of our existing players, so fitting into the locker room will be an easy thing. Any time that you can
have a smoother transition with a new player coming in, that helps.”

WINNIPEG
– “It’s a testament to the character we have in this room.”

Drew Stafford and the Winnipeg Jets have reason to be confident.

It was a gutty win, that one – a 4-2 triumph over the visiting Dallas Stars, who did everything possible to spoil the party with a dominant middle frame.

The Jets bent, but didn’t break. After surviving a push, they went on the offensive, scoring three unanswered to seize control and silence a divisional foe. The Jets (31-20-11) now have 73 points and remain atop the Western Conference Wild Card.

“We know what it takes to win games. We’re not going to falter,” Stafford said. “We needed that one, especially with how the last couple games have gone.”

Character, indeed.

MISSING A WHEEL

Blake Wheeler (lower body) was once again absent as the Jets took to the ice for practice. Wheeler, who was been placed on injured reserve as a result of the acquisition of Jiri Tlusty earlier this afternoon, will not play again tomorrow but could be available for Sunday’s matinee against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.

According to Head Coach Paul Maurice, Wheeler’s contributions have been immeasurable this season, both in the room and on the ice, in practices and in games.

WINNIPEG
– Now that’s how you kick off a home stand.

The Winnipeg Jets did what they needed to do Tuesday night. Timely scoring and an exceptional goaltending performance propelled the hometown team to a colossal 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

Bryan Little, Adam Lowry, Dustin Byfuglien and Michael Frolik (EN) had the goals for the Jets, while Michael Hutchinson made 26 saves in the win. Hutchinson, who has now started four of the past five games for the blue and white, has earned 10 of a possible 12 points in his last six overall (4-0-2).

With the win, the Jets improve to 31-20-11 and with 73 points on the year – four up on the Minnesota Wild and five on the Calgary Flames – continue to hold the top spot in the Western Conference Wild Card.

“We knew Dallas has some offensive skill and that they were going to have a push at some point,” Hutchinson said. “They were good in that second period (outshooting the Jets 10-4), but we were fortunate that we didn’t get running around too much. We blocked some key shots whenever they did get chances, I was fortunate to be there to make the save.”

AT THE MORNING SKATE

WINNIPEG – The injury bug, while no stranger to the Winnipeg Jets this season, has reared its ugly head again.

Blake Wheeler will not play tonight due to a lower-body injury. This, coming on the heels of the announcement that rookie defenceman Ben Chiarot will miss the next six weeks after having surgery to repair broken bones in his left hand.

Mathieu Perreault, of course, remains out with a “significant” lower-body injury that may sideline him for the rest of the regular season.

As a result, the Jets have recalled centre Eric O’Dell from the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League. In 37 games on The Rock this season, the 24-year-old has recorded 14 goals, 29 points, 34 penalty minutes and a -4 rating. O’Dell appeared in 30 games with the Jets last season, tallying three goals and four assists.

O’Dell is currently en route to Winnipeg and could play tonight, according to Head Coach Paul Maurice.

Michael Frolik will take Wheeler’s spot on the top line alongside Bryan Little and Andrew Ladd.

The full forward line combinations are as follows:

Andrew Ladd - Bryan Little - Michael Frolik
Dustin Byfuglien - Mark Scheifele - Drew Stafford
TJ Galiardi - Adam Lowry - Chris Thorburn
Carl Klingberg - Jim Slater - Anthony Peluso

“Hopefully we get off to a quick start and find some chemistry early on,” Frolik said. “I try to play the same way all the time. … I’m going to be skating hard and creating some space for them out there.”

WINNIPEG, Manitoba – After leaving the game following his fight with Daniel Winnik in Winnipeg’s 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto on Saturday, Ben Chiarot was at MTS Iceplex on Monday. Just not the way the Jets coaches, players, and fans would have liked.

Chiarot was sporting a cast on his left hand, and had that arm in a sling.

“He’s going to be out for a long period of time, closer to April,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “He did have surgery yesterday and had it repaired.

“Around the six week mark, we’ll use the word ‘is typical.’ But he’s not coming back until the doc says that thing is right.”

The defenceman was placed on injured reserve, and now, the Jets focus on moving forward, while Chiarot eyes a return to the line-up in early April. Forward Blake Wheeler also didn’t skate today, but Maurice lists him as “possible” for tomorrow’s game.

TORONTO, Ontario
– The Toronto Maple Leafs came into the night having won only four of their past 28 games, but tonight, on the second half of a back-to-back set, they rallied – willing their way to victory.

James van Riemsdyk scored 3:57 into overtime, sending the home crowd home happy in a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets at Air Canada Centre.

Mark Scheifele recorded a goal and an assist, Drew Stafford tallied a pair of helpers and Michael Hutchinson made 29 saves, but it wasn’t enough.

Jacob Trouba and Michael Frolik scored the others for the Jets.

With the OT loss, the Jets now have a 30-20-11 record for 71 points.

“It was a sloppy, chippy kind of game. There wasn’t a lot of flow to it,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “I’m not sure that the chances that they had were any better than the ones we had… We didn’t have a great offensive push. We’re going to need these two [off] days to heal up a bit. We weren’t skating as well as I think we can.

“We aren’t getting up the ice and onto the puck as well as we’re capable. I think we’ll get that back. A couple of days and we’ll be good.”
