Rick Bowness Leaves the Jets


A few days ago, the Winnipeg Jets announced that their head coach would be taking a leave of absence from the team to be with his wife after she suffered a stroke.


We have finally received an update on the situation.

Major Update on Bowness and the Jets


In a conversation between Darren Dreger, Pierre LeBrun, and Chris Johnston live on TSN's Insider Trading, we received an update on Bowness.

Here's what we learned:

"The great news is that Judy is at home. Rick is with her, and she's resting. She is also undergoing further testing and evaluation to determine exactly what happened and why it occurred.

The priority for Rick Bowness is his family, and by extension the Winnipeg Jets, hence the leave of absence. We don't know how long he will be away from the club, but the team is in good hands from a hockey perspective with Scott Arniel. He was a top candidate when the Jets were searching for a coach before hiring Rick Bowness, so they are confident in his ability to handle things in the interim."

This is positive news. Judy, Bowness' wife, is at home and receiving care.

As for the Jets, they are also in good hands with Arniel. Bowness can take all the time he needs to support his wife, knowing his team is being led by a competent coach.

Updates will follow.
