WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have trimmed their training-camp roster to 37 players.

On Friday afternnoon, the Jets re-assigned 10 players to the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League, including forwards Jason Jaffray, JC Lipon, John Albert, Austen Brassard, Blair Riley and Kael Mouillierat, defencemen Brenden Kichton, Will O’Neill and Cody Sol and goalie Jussi Olkinuora.

The Jets also released defenceman Ian White from his pro tryout offer.

Jets head coach Claude Noel said that since many of the young blue-liners in camp were playing well, the organization owed it to them to give them a longer look.

One of those defenceman surviving the cut was 2013 first rounder Josh Morrissey.

The Jets got some news on the injury froont as forwards Andrew Gordon (lower-body), Chris Thorburn (lower-body) and Adam Lowry (upper-body) all skated without non-contact jerseys on Friday.

However, Noel wasn’t sure when any of the trio would be ready for game action.
