The Winnipeg Jets have added local hockey legend Mike Keane as their assistant of player development.
A three-time Stanley Cup winner who played 1,161 career NHL games in Montreal, Colorado, NY (Rangers), Dallas, St. Louis and Vancouver, Keane wrapped up his career in Winnipeg, where he was a member of the AHL’s Manitoba Moose from 2005-2010.
The Jets announced today that Keane will work with Jimmy Roy -- the team’s Player Development Coordinator and a former Moose teammate -- and will be focused in particular on developing and evaluating players on the club’s AHL farm team in St. John’s.
Photojournalist Joe Bryksa was at the MTS Iceplex today to capture the Winnipeg Jets as they took to the ice for their first practice of the season.
