Game Recap: Jets vs Sharks
Game Recap: Jets vs Sharks

The Winnipeg Jets rookies showcased their strength, speed and physicality in their first of three games Friday night as they took down the junior Sharks of San Jose, by a score of 5-3.

Mitchell Theoret (a Jets tryout) opened the scoring less than five minutes into the first period to put Winnipeg up 1-0. Portland Winterhawks forward, Nik Petan, tried to tuck the puck around Sharks goaltender Troy Grosenick and the loose puck spit out right onto the stick of Theoret waiting in the slot.

Konrad Abeltshauser managed to tie things up for the Sharks minutes later but it didn’t last long as Jets’ first rounder (13th overall) Josh Morrissey, picked up his first of the tournament on the power play to give back the Jets their lead.

The Sharks clawed back minutes later due to a costly turnover in front of the Jets’ net resulting in a first goal for Rylan Schwartz.

With less than three minutes to play in the opening period, Jets' J.C Lipon and Ian Lafrate exchanged words and dropped the gloves in an animated tilt resulting in a five minute time-out.

2013 seventh round pick Brenden Kichton, notched his first goal of the tournament as he slid one past Grosenick from the top of the circle with 90 seconds to play. The Jets hit the dressing room holding a 3-2 lead after 20 minutes and leading 14-7 in shots on goal.

Lukas Sutter kicked things off barely a minute into the second period by dropping the gloves with Kyle Bigos, hoping to keep the intensity level high with his group.

Sharks’ Schwartz picked up his second goal of the night at the 13-minute mark of the middle frame to tie the game at three.

Scott Kosmachuk scored his first goal of the tournament at 3:55 of the final period on a nice give-and-go play with Brassard to give the Jets the go-ahead goal.

Kichton sealed the deal by adding a fifth goal to the scoreboard (and his second of the night) at 13:53, as he blasted home a slap shot from the top of the circle.

Next, the Jets will take on the Edmonton Oilers Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. PT (9:30 p.m. CT). Be sure to watch the live feed on winnipegjets.com
