The kids are all right

The Winnipeg Jets prospects put in a solid effort for the second straight night but didn’t get the result they wanted Monday to close out a tournament of NHL hopefuls in Belleville, Ont.

The Jets prospects were edged 2-1 by the Ottawa Senators in the last game of the 2019 Rookie Showcase. Our Jason Bell has the full story.

Also Monday, Mike McIntyre had a one on one chat with Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck. You’ll recall he bailed on garbage bag day in April so we truly haven’t heard a peep from him since the season ended.

And remember folks, some days you will find your Jets news in our Playbook newsletter, which you can sign up for here.

In today's FlightClub, we include Doug Brown's column on the Banjo Bowl — the type of content typically sent out in Playbook.
