The Jets’ 2017 1st round pick and his Kärpät team are Finnish Champions! Kristian Vesalainen and his Kärpät teammates are SM-Liiga champions, defeating Tappara 1-0 on Thursday to take the final series four games to two. Vesalainen was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1st round, 24th overall, in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Vesalainen started the year with HPK, before being loaned to Kärpät for their title push. He had 22 goals and 21 assists in 49 combined regular season games between the two teams. He notched an additional eight points in 18 postseason appearances.

Breaking down how the Winnipeg Jets matchup against the Nashville Predators

Before the playoffs even began, fans around the hockey world were circling a potential second round matchup between Nashville and Winnipeg that everyone wanted to see. This series has been almost pre-destined since the mid-way point of the regular season. This clash of titans provided us with some of the best games of the entire regular season and everyone is hoping the series lives up to that hype. But aside from how entertaining it’s bound to be, which team has the edge? I like to look at the second half of the NHL season when comparing playoff teams. Not because the first half doesn’t matter at all, it’s just slightly less relevant to the way teams are currently playing. Since these teams have both already played a series, that’s relevant information too, but we’ll get to that later.

Jets vs Predators – Who Has The Edge?

Date: 2018-04-26

Many a hockey fan and pundit have called the upcoming series between the Nashville Predators and the Winnipeg Jets “the most anticipated of the NHL playoffs” and for very good reason. The Preds and Jets finished at the top and in second place in the league overall standings and when you look up and down the rosters of both teams, you see they are stacked in all aspects of the game. Simply put, this is going to be a fun series and the following “edges” we give these teams are slight ones at best. Unlike the series against the Wild where the Jets not only held advantages, but by a wide margin, there is no such gaps here between these two teams that will meet Friday in Nashville. OFFENSE An interesting clash of styles on offense as the Jets boast some higher end scoring ability with two 30+ goal scorers and five players overall that had 20 or more goals on the season compared to the Predators who didn’t see

Organizers wonder how big crowds will get for Jets street party

WINNIPEG — At first, it was just a few thousand people braving the cold to cheer on the Winnipeg Jets in a street party. Then the numbers grew. And, with each game, the crowd got bigger. Organizers say that by Game 5 of the first round of the NHL playoffs — which the Jets won against the Minnesota Wild — almost 20,000 people had gathered in the street outside Bell MTS Place to cheer, watch the game on big screens and be entertained by DJs. Playoff fever has fully erupted in a city that had been starved of an NHL playoff victory for two decades. "The patience as a fan base … has created this enormous sense of pent-up excitement to explode and let it all out," says Darren Ford, who led a grassroots campaign to bring the NHL back to Winnipeg after the first Jets franchise left for
