The Winnipeg jets made a statement this year when the team decided to re-sign both Connor Hellebuyck and Mark Scheifele to matching seven-year extensions. The move indicated that the team would be all in on their current roster, and that they would be making a push for the playoffs. So far things have gone well as they team is 2nd in the Central Division.

Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey went on the Ray and Dregs Podcast yesterday where he shared a story involving former Jets blueliner Dustin Byfuglien

Morrissey Shares Hilarious Story About Byfuglien

Ferraro and Dreger asked Morrissey about the early days of his career. In his response he talked about how he had to adjust his game to stay in the NHL since there were other guys that could step in if he made too many mistakes. He then went on to tease his former defense partner Dustin Byfuglien for not playing defense.

"The opportunity that was available for me was PK and solid 5 on 5 play. You know, especially starting my career off with (Byfuglien), he wasn't back there too much."

Winnipeg Jets Poised For Playoff Success

The Jets are playing some of their best hockey in recent years at the moment. They are currently on pace for 112 points. Such a total would be the team's 2nd highest total in franchise history and their best since the 2017-18 season when they reached the 114 point mark.

Morrissey has been a key contributor to the team's success as he has 18 points through 19 games.

The Jets will face some stiff competition in the Central from powerhouse teams like the Avalanche and the Stars. However, if they are able to continue their strong play, perhaps people will take them more seriously as a legit contender.
