VIDEO INTERVIEWS 

After a convincing 4-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks Sunday night, the Winnipeg Jets prospects reported to the South Penticton Events Centre for their second practice full of excitement and energy.

The Jets young stars will next face the first overall pick of the 2011 NHL entry draft Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and the Edmonton Oilers. Game time goes at 9:30 pm CST.

"I've heard a lot about him," Jets d-man Zach Redmond on Nugent-Hopkins. "He's a little younger than I am so I haven't followed him a ton but I've heard he's a great player and I'm going to have to watch him when he's on the ice."

Tonight's line combinations looked almost identical to Sunday's lineup with only a couple of players swapping places.

The Jets top line will see Mark Scheifele, Carl Klingberg and Jason Gregoire together again.

Swift Current Bronco winger Adam Lowry, will skate with Eric O'Dell and Austen Brassard.

Levko Koper, who found the back of the net twice for the Jets last night will play with Michael Kirkpatrick and Jordan DePape who will replace Klac Wilson on right wing.

Blue line pairings are as follows:

Ben Chiarot- Zach Redmond
Sebastian Owuya- Cody Sol
Zach Yuen- Julian Melchiori

Chris Carrozzi will get his first start in net.

CONSISTENCY IS KEY

The Jets prospects didn't take long to get over the nervousness and anticipation of last night's game. They quickly found their feet and played their game the best that they knew how. The trick, and what everyone will be looking for tonight from the Jets young guns is consistency. Can they repeat?

"Can they do it in back to back games with the same skill set and work to their strengths the way they did last night?" McCambridge questioned. "If they can put together back to back strong games, that's what we're looking for. For the guys who didn't stand out, it's an opportunity to have a stronger outing."

Unfortunately for the Winnipeg Jets, time did not allow for a summer development camp which means that management and scouts were not able to take a good look into the prospect cupboard or have the time to work  with these young players over the summer.

"This is the first time they've had a chance to show themselves to us and for us to see them," said Jets Executive VP & General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff. "It was an important game and it is an important week and this tournament is very well run. It's great to see your prospects up against some of the other young prospects in the league. All in all it's been a really positive experience so far."


CHRIS CARROZZI GETS HIS START

Coach McCambridge informed the media Tuesday morning after practice that 21 year old netminder Chris Carrozzi will get the start between the pipes tonight for the Jets. Carrozzi played in one game with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL and started in 47 for the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL last season.

"Chris will start tonight, yes," said McCambridge. "Eddie (Pasquale) played a really strong game for us last night but Chris will have his opportunity to play tonight."
