Jets coach says goaltending, injuries are key
WINNIPEG - Head coach Claude Noel said goaltending and managing injuries will be the Winnipeg Jets key to success in the lockout shortened season.
Winnipeg has a new backup goaltender — Al Montoya — behind starter Ondrej Pavelec.
Noel says he can't say how much either will play right now.
He spoke after an open practice where about 5,000 fans showed up to watch the start of the Jets' training camp.
Forward Blake Wheeler said it was great to see so many fans come out for the practice
The Jets are also looking at some prospects from their farm team, in particular on defence.
