Jets hit the ice with young players from Manitoba First Nations

 


Three players from the Jets took a team of youngsters from two Manitoba First Nations through a few drills in Winnipeg Monday.

Forwards Chris Thorburn, Adam Lowry and Mark Scheifele skated with a group of players from Sagkeeng First Nation and Swan Lake First Nation at the MTS Iceplex as part of an event sponsored by the NHL Players Association.

Reinie Courchene, head coach of the team from Sagkeeng, said getting to lace up and play with NHLers will have a big impact on the young players.
