Hurricanes 4, Jets 0

Coming into Winnipeg Jets training camp, David Aebischer was looking for a spot to return to the NHL, possibly trying to battle Chris Mason for the backup role behind Ondrej Pavelec.

However, Aebischer may have played his way out of a chance to play for the Winnipeg Jets this season.

Through the first forty minutes, Aebischer let in four goals and managed to take two straight penalties that put the Jets on a 5-on-3 penalty kill, already down 3-0.

From the get-go, the Jets were reeling as Zac Dalpe made it 1-0 after blowing past Arturs Kulda on the right side and ringing a shot over Aebischer's glove side at 6:43 of the first.

Jay Harrison would make it 2-0 after his point shot pinballed past Aebischer short side at 7:52 to make it a quick 2-0 'Canes lead.

The second period was no different for the Jets as the 'Canes took the play to the Jets defense, as Jerome Samson scored at 13:05 short side on Aebischer on a shot that glanced off defenseman Dustin Byfuglien.

After killing off one of Aebischer's two penalties, Riley Nash would score on a gimme after a scramble in front was not cleared by Randy Jones at 18:34 as the second power-play was ending.

In the third, both teams were stalemated by each other, despite a few shots off the post behind Aebischer.

Jets now focus on tomorrow's Kraft Hockeyville game in St. John's, Newfoundland which will feature the other half of the Jets.
