Winnipeg – The Winnipeg Jets have trimmed their ranks by nine while adding eight names to the training camp roster of their AHL Affiliate, the Manitoba Moose.
Defenceman Brenden Kichton, along with forwards Quinton Howden and J.C. Lipon have to clear NHL waivers before they can report to Manitoba. Also assigned to the farm team are goalie Eric Comrie, defencemen Jan Kostalek and Kevin Czuczman, and forwards Scott Kosmachuk and Jack Roslovic.
2016 first round draft pick Logan Stanley (D) is also on his way back to the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires for another season of major junior hockey.
Tuesday’s transactions leave the Jets with a pre-season roster of thirty-three players heading into the final two games at Edmonton on Thursday and in Minnesota Saturday.
