St-John’s IceCaps 2011-12 Farm Team Scoring

in Jets Flight Control

When True North brought the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg, they had a problem with finding a place where to place their other hockey team, the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League. Winnipeg would not be able to support both the Jets and the Moose.

True North made the decision to place the franchise in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The team was renamed the IceCaps.

But because the Manitoba Moose were affiliated with the Vancouver Canucks, none of the players would automatically follow the franchise to St. Johns. It was an example of a franchise but not the team moving cities.

True North had to quickly start putting players in uniform, many from their Atlanta draft picks, but also a few free agent signings. It would be a new team in a new city for an old franchise.

Because the St.John’s IceCaps are the primary farm team for the Winnipeg Jets, I thought it would be useful to review how the IceCaps did in their first season as a new team and track how many of those players contributed to the Winnipeg Jets in 2011-12.
