Jets Journal: Sunday Scrimmage

It's Day 2 of training camp. The kinks are out and the jitters are hopefully all gone after playing in front of an electric crowd on Saturday at the MTS Iceplex. Today, the atmosphere was back to what a normal practice day would be like. Quiet and pressure-free.

"It was nice to have that reception yesterday at the practice rink for the first day of training camp," said Bryan Little. "But it was a sigh of relief to come out today and have a little less pressure and less nerves from all the guys so it was a nice change of pace."

The Jets gathered at the MTS Centre first thing Sunday morning for their second practice followed by a scrimmage between group B and group C.

"It felt good. A bit faster paced today and I thought everyone was a bit sharper," Little said. "That's what you'd expect, every day at camp everyone's going to get a little better."

Group B including Dustin Byfuglien and Evander Kane took to the ice at 9:00 a.m for a 45 minute practice. Group C including Blake Wheeler and Tanner Glass joined in for a 50 minute scrimmage. Both groups battled hard in front of scouts, coaches, management and media to strut their stuff and make their best impression.

Group B took Group C by a score of 3-1 in the morning match with Levko Koper, Spencer Machacek and Mark Scheifele picking up the goals. Blake Wheeler scored the lone goal for Group C.

Scheifele spoke to media after the scrimmage and as usual the young gun was grinning from ear to ear. He feels confident that he is ready for the NHL level and hopes he is making the impression that he needs to land him a spot on the roster this season. Scoring a goal and being robbed on a breakaway today sure can't hurt his chances.

"I just have to show them that I can be here and show them that my body is ready and I'm ready mentally as well," Scheifele explained. "I have to go out every skate, every practice, every game and show what I can do and work my hardest and battle through everything. That's the thing, they want to see if I can battle through playing with older guys and battle through the tough wrenches of the NHL."

"To get a goal is awesome," said Scheifele. "Really I just wanted to play good defense, make good passes and just wanted to play my game and at least make an impression."
