Winnipeg Jets send Connor Hellebuyck to Manitoba Moose
WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Jets are down to their two goalies for the start of the regular season after they re-assigned Connor Hellebuyck to the Manitoba Moose. The move leaves the Jets with only Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson to tend goal for the Jets.
Hellebuyck, 22, appeared in two pre-season games for the Jets. In two games against the Minnesota Wild he allowed three goals on 19 shots.
Hellebuyck has just one professional season under his belt and is tabbed to be the Moose number one netminder this season. In 2014-15 Hellebuyck appeared in 58 regular season games and posted a 2.58 goals against average along with a .921 save percentage.
