The NHL pause came while Kyle Connor was at his hottest.
Connor had 13 goals and 22 points in his last 17 games as well as eight goals in his last seven contests before the pause. The Jets had endured a trying season, but they were hot too. Winnipeg had claimed four straight games and five of its last six contests before the NHL was forced to suspend indefinitely. That left the Jets in limbo with a 37-28-6 record and Connor just two goals shy of 40. “I was really getting in the groove, as well as the whole team,” Connor said. “I really hope they do finish the season, but that’s still up in the air. This team, the way it was playing, some of the best hockey we ever have. And it just sucks the way it all unfolded. I think the sky was the limit with this team.” Unfortunately, reclaiming that momentum if the season does continue would be difficult, but this is a situation that was out of their hands. Like everyone else, right now their focus is on staying healthy and awaiting the day when life can return to normal. Apr 10 1:51 pm (EST)
