WINNIPEG - Two of the first Winnipeg Jets to trickle back into town took some time out from a Tuesday morning workout to assess the summer and look ahead to training camp, three weeks down the road.

Forwards Bryan Little and Chris Thorburn, skating with defenceman Mark Stuart and some other pros at the Iceplex, expect head coach Paul Maurice’s first Winnipeg camp to be a tough one.

“I know camp is going to be hard,” Little said. “He said it was going to be hard. It was kind of, ‘You guys better come ready to skate and ready to work when camp begins.’ I haven’t seen everyone. I think and I hope everyone’s ready to go. The guys I have seen are looking pretty good.”

The teammates Little has seen over the summer include Dustin Byfuglien, one of three Jets who got married this off-season.

Little and Matt Halischuk are the others to tie the knot, making for a few more get-togethers than you’d normally get among teammates in the summer.
