Jets' Pavelec eyes playoffs

WINNIPEG - Ondrej Pavelec had only been in town a few hours when he made his intentions very clear for this season with the Winnipeg Jets.

"Absolutely, we can make the playoffs. We’re a young team but we’re a year older and we have more experience," said Pavelec, who went 21-23-9 in goal for the Atlanta Thrashers last season. "We lost eight in a row at one stretch and any team that does that won’t make the playoffs. But if we don’t lose those games we make the playoffs and that has to be our focus this season."

Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec arrived in Winnipeg on Sunday and hit the ice with his teammates this morning at the MTS Iceplex.

Pavelec and defenceman Zach Bogosian were the latest Jets to report to Winnipeg with defenceman Dustin Byfuglien the lone big name not in town at this point.

The rookies and prosepects are in Penticton this week for a Young Stars tournament and main camp opens in Winnipeg on Saturday.

Pavelec says he’s ready for lots of action.

"I want to play every game. Every player does," said the 24-year-old native of the Czech Republic. "But it’s a team game and I want what is best for the team."
