WINNIPEG – Tyler Myers has one regret about undergoing hip surgery in the spring.
“Based on the way it feels now, I wish I would have got it done a couple of years ago,” the Winnipeg Jets defenceman said after the NHL club opened training camp Friday with on-ice testing at the MTS Iceplex.
Gone is the pain and soreness he had “managed” for a few years, especially after practices and games.
A group of media gathered to get a preview of the soundtrack for this season’s game-opening video. And while we couldn’t record video or audio, we can assure you fans are in for a treat. The musical piece, overseen by WSO music director Alexander Mickelthwate, was scored by Hollywood producer Shawn Pierce. Pierce’s work can be heard on “The Bridge,” CTV/ABC’s “Motive” and the long-running SYFY/Showcase hit series “Haven.”
Hull released a statement through the Jets on Friday afternoon:
“It’s a true honour to be inducted into the Winnipeg Jets Hall of Fame alongside my former linemates, and friends, Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson. While I will not be in attendance for the celebration, I want to thank the Jets for the special recognition and the wonderful fans of Winnipeg for all of their support throughout the years.”
