2011 Training Camp News/Discussion
Jason Gregoire - W - Jets
Jason Gregoire wants to be in the mix for a potential roster spot with Winnipeg during training camp.
"It's not time to be ooh-ing and aahing any more," said the 22-year-old Winnipeg product. "It's time to try and turn heads for yourself and for some of the coaching staff watching these games and in the main camp. I'm fighting for a job and that's my mentality going into main camp." Gregoire was signed by the Jets this past summer, as a free agent, and he has drawn praise for his work in the Young Stars tournament. He might be destined to start the year in the minors, but he will likely get a look in camp.
Dustin Byfuglien - D - Jets
Dustin Byfuglien, who has been charged with suspicion of boating while intoxicated, said he has no trouble crossing the border.
Byfuglien reportedly weighed in at 286 pounds when he was arrested, which is a significant jump from the roughly 250 pounds he normally is when he plays. Byfuglien refused to reveal his current weight, but he claims that it's not a problem.
