Jets goalie Mikhail Berdin wasn’t overly busy in the Jets net as he stopped nine of the 10 shots he faced. Flames forward Dillon Dube beat Berdin in the first period to give Calgary the early lead, but the Jets rattled off four consecutive goals to pick up the victory.

Francis Beauvillier was scratched for Winnipeg.

The Jets finished the rookie tournament with a win and two losses and will now return to Winnipeg for the start of main training camp on Friday.
