Jets and Coyotes head to OT tied 2-2

TEMPE, Ariz. — The Winnipeg Jets and Arizona Coyotes are headed to overtime tied 2-2 through three periods at Mullett Arena.

The Coyotes took a 2-0 lead with a pair of goals from forward Christian Fischer, who scored at the 10:17 and 15:28 marks of the opening frame. The Jets answered back with a goal from rookie Cole Perfetti, who scored his third of the season 28 seconds after Fischer’s second marker.

It remained a one-goal game after a scoreless second period, only for Mark Scheifele to tie it in the third with his team-leading sixth of the season.

Shots are 34-20 in favour of Winnipeg.

Radio host who lost council race to return to airwaves

Long-time local radio personality Hal Anderson will soon return to the airwaves after losing a city council race in the municipal election.

Anderson, who came in second in the Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood race to winner Evan Duncan, went on leave from his on-air host job at CJOB and columnist role at the Winnipeg Sun to seek the seat vacated by losing mayoral candidate Kevin Klein.

In a social media post Saturday, Anderson said he was “happy to confirm” he was returning to his roles “after taking a few days to lick (his) political wounds.”

“After a bit of rest, I look forward to returning to a media career that I love dearly,” Anderson said.
