Coach Noel addresses the troops today at practice.

The Winnipeg Jets have trimmed their roster by 11 more players this afternoon, including the release of Steinbach native Ian White, a veteran defenceman with more than 500 games on his resume.

White was in Jets' training camp on a tryout.

"The thing that we have is that we’ve seen some things from our young players, and our young players have shown they look like they are capable and we want to take a look and put them in a situation where we take a look at our own people," Jets coach Claude Noel said after today’s two practices, when the cuts were announced.

"We’ll go in that direction."

Re-assigned today are forwards Austen Brassard, Blair Riley, J.C. Lipon, Jason Jaffray, John Albert, Kael Mouillierat and Will O’Neill, defencemen Cody Sol and Brenden Kichton and goalie Jussi Olkinuora,.

All will report to the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps.

The moves today leave the Jets with 37 players in camp, still including 12 defenceman.

The total also includes forwards Adam Lowry, Andrew Gordon and Chris Thorburn, who are again cleared to practise after being injured,

As well, left-winger Eric Tangradi has a lower-body injury and is day to day and goalie Michael Hutchinson is away from the team temporarily for family reasons.

The Jets are in Minnesota for a Saturday night exhibition game, their fifth of eight pre-season contests.
