“Golden Jet” honored as Winnipeg Blues beat

Josh Morrissey and Mark Scheifele each scored two goals as the Winnipeg Jets beat St. Louis 4-2 in the NHL’s only game on Monday night. Saku Maenalanen and Kyle Connor each added two assists and Connor Hellebuyck had 24 digs.

The Jets paid tribute to the late Bobby Hull before the game. The Hall of Famer, who died Monday at age 84, played for the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and Hartford Whalers as well as the World Hockey Association’s Winnipeg Jets over a 23-year professional career. In 1961 he helped lead the Blackhawks to their first Stanley Cup in 23 years and in 1966 he became the first player in NHL history to score more than 50 goals in a single season. In 1972, Hull made the jump to the fledgling WHA when he signed a million-dollar contract with the Jets at the corner of Portage and Main in downtown Winnipeg. The deal was the largest in hockey at the time, bringing relevance to the fledgling league and starting an escalation in player salaries. Hull won two AVCO World Cups with the Jets in 1976 and 1978 before the WHA merged with the NHL in 1979.

In other NHL news, the Vancouver Canucks traded captain Bo Horvat to the New York Islanders in exchange for Anthony Beauvillier, Aatu Raty and a conditional first-round pick in the 2023 draft. Horvat was in the midst of a career-high 31-goal, 55-point season and was named to the Pacific Division all-star list.
