Hearing coming for Morrissey: Jets defenceman could face supplemental discipline
Winnipeg Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey will have a phone hearing with the NHL department of player safety to discuss a play involving Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie.

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey will have a phone hearing with the NHL department of player safety to discuss a play involving Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie.
During the final minute of play of Wednesday’s game, Morrissey and Oshie were involved in a puck battle in the corner and at the conclusion of the play — after both players bounced off the boards — the Jets defenceman slammed Oshie to the ice after the legs of the two players got tangled up.
Oshie stayed down on the ice for several seconds after the play and looked woozy as he finally got up, though he stayed on the ice for the remainder of the shift.
No penalty was called on the play, but the NHL department of player safety announced on Thursday morning that a hearing was warranted for interference/unsportsmanlike conduct.
Capitals head coach Todd Reirden said following the game that the play reminded him of the way Florida Panthers defenceman Mike Matheson took Vancouver Canucks rookie Elias Petersson to the ice in a game last month.
That play resulted in a two-game suspension for Matheson for interference/unsportsmanlike conduct.
“It’s something I think the league is going to look at,” Reirden said. “It’s similar to a situation that happened in Vancouver earlier in the year — a vulnerable player that’s thrown to the ice. We’ll see and check in on T.J. I have not talked to our trainer tonight since the end of the game, so I’m not sure exactly where things stand with him.”
Oshie wasn’t the only player to suffer a suspected head injury in the game on Wednesday, as Capitals top centre Evgeny Kuznetsov left the game in the first period after an illegal check to the head from Jets forward Brandon Tanev.
Tanev received a minor penalty on the play and isn’t expected to face any supplemental discipline.
Morrissey is not a dirty player, but he would be considered a repeat offender, since he was suspended for one game during the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs for his high cross check on Minnesota Wild centre Eric Staal.
The Jets are back in action on Friday against the Buffalo Sabres as they close out a four-game homestand.
In other news, a report out of Finland from reporter Pekka Jalonen suggests Jets top forward prospect Kristian Vesalainen could exercise the out clause in his contract and return home to play for Jokerit of the Kontinental Hockey League.
Jokerit acquired Vesalainen’s KHL rights from SKA St. Petersburg.
Vesalainen, chosen 24th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft, started the season with the Jets and chipped in one assist in five games while averaging just under seven minutes of ice time.
Since joining the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League, Vesalainen has three goals and eight points in eight games.
Xplornet’s new Manitoba wireless plans let customers roll over unused data to the next month
The newest player on Manitoba’s wireless scene came in with a bang on Wednesday, offering customers a Rollover plan.

The newest player on Manitoba’s wireless scene came in with a bang on Wednesday, offering customers a Rollover plan.
Xplore Mobile’s plan allow’s its customers to roll over their unused data from the previous month.
“Manitobans have been asking for a wireless company that treats them fairly and offers plans that are simple, affordable and transparent. We want to be that company,” said Allison Lenehan, President of Xplore Mobile in a release.
The New Brunswick-based private company’s new wireless brand, Xplore Mobile, recently launched its service by welcoming approximately 20,000 mobile customers transferred from another carrier, as a result of the agreement with the Competition Bureau of Canada in February 2017.
Three Xplore Mobile retail locations in Winnipeg and Brandon are now open, with three more opening this week, allowing Manitobans to learn more about the Rollover plan.
It’s the first foray into wireless service for the rural internet company that will now take on the Big Three as Manitoba’s fourth wireless carrier.
Under the Rollover plans, when a wireless customer purchases 7 gigabytes of data per month but only uses 5 GB, the leftover 2 GB will automatically be rolled over to the next billing cycle, giving them 9 GB the following month.
Xplore plans to invest $100 million in Manitoba to get its network running. Xplore had built roughly 25% of that network in the spring of 2018.
Xplornet started transitioning about 20,000 mobile customers from Bell MTS to its service earlier this fall.
CFL adds eighth official for rest of playoffs after obvious blow to head of quarterback missed in West semifinal
The Canadian Football League will add an extra official for Sunday’s East and West finals and the Nov. 25 Grey Cup in Edmonton, specifically to watch for blows to the head and neck of quarterbacks. The extraordinary move comes after a clear blow to the head by Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat to...
The Canadian Football League will add an extra official for Sunday’s East and West finals and the Nov. 25 Grey Cup in Edmonton, specifically to watch for blows to the head and neck of quarterbacks.
The extraordinary move comes after a clear blow to the head by Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat to Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Brandon Bridge, which resulted in an injury, was missed by the on-field officials.
CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie acknowledged after the game that a penalty should have been called on the play but the view of the referee responsible for making the call was blocked. A ref-cam clearly showed that to be the case.
“It is very important that this sort of potentially dangerous play is penalized on the field in addition to being subject to supplementary discipline,” Ambrosie said in a statement Thursday. “Not only is it important to the integrity of the game, it can act as a deterrent.
“That is why we are adding an additional set of eyes, with a strictly limited but well-defined mandate, to our officiating crew. No system is fail-safe and no human is incapable of error. And nothing we do on player safety should be held up as the ultimate solution. Our approach must constantly evolve. But we believe this is a step forward. We will continue to look for ways to not only penalize dangerous play but, more importantly, prevent it.”
Ambrosie has repeatedly said that health and safety of players is a priority and yet this season has been marred by at least a couple of nasty head hits.
Odell Willis of the B.C. Lions was fined for a hit he put on Roughriders quarterback Zach Collaros in an Oct. 27 game. That blow to the head forced Collaros from the game and he also missed last Sunday’s West Division semifinal, which his team lost to the Blue Bombers. Again, no penalty was called on the field on that play.
The league brought representatives of the nine member clubs together this week to discuss a solution to the problem. This proposal was presented to the four clubs still in contention for the Grey Cup — the Bombers, Calgary Stampeders, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Redblacks.
“I want to thank the clubs for their input and counsel … I especially want to acknowledge the view of some that making a change in the middle of the playoffs has some significant risks,” Ambrosie said.
“I understand and even sympathize to a large extent with that position. Making changes at this point is another variable coaches and players and even officials, all of whom are under pressure at this critical time of year, have to consider. But we ultimately came to the conclusion that this step is needed at this time. We have done much over the years to protect quarterbacks, including rule changes. This year, we increased fines and even imposed suspensions. We tweaked our officiating protocols to assign to umpires as well as head referees the responsibility for detecting and calling high hits to the quarterback. But it is clear we need to do more.”
Brian Ramsay, executive director of the CFL Players Association, issued a statement applauding the league for an action that they’d “like to think can prompt a change for the better.”
“However, it’s what is not being talked about that concerns our members. If the league and team management were really serious about improving player safety, they would agree with our long-held complaint that the League’s eleven-person Rules Committee has only one player representative. The other ten are all appointed by league management.”
“We plan to continue to press the league for real change when it comes to player safety. Whether it’s having an equal voice on the Safety Committee or ensuring that teams take full responsibility for the care and rehabilitation of injured players, players deserve better from the teams that employ them. I’m sure all would agree: we have to make sure there is a system in place to take care of players.”
The league said the eighth official’s only responsibility will be to watch for head hits and he will not be allowed to have input on any other calls in the game. If he sees an infraction that was not originally flagged, he can inform he head referee, who can then throw a flag.
“After the Grey Cup, we will assess this change as part of a complete review of what we are doing, and what else might be done, to protect quarterbacks and improve health and safety for all of our players,” Ambrosie said.
“The addition of an eighth official may prove to be an interim step. It may become part of a broader package of reforms which may include changes to the mandate of the Command Centre. That will be determined by a process that will include the Canadian Football League Players’ Association, our Rules Committee, our officials and our governors. The process of improving player health and safety is very important to us and it never ends.”
Province advises employers be prosecuted for workplace incidents
The Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) branch of Manitoba Growth, Enterprise and Trade is reminding employers to ensure serious incidents are reported and adequate safeguards are in place for machines after two employers were prosecuted for violations under The Workplace Safety and Health Act.

The Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) branch of Manitoba Growth, Enterprise and Trade is reminding employers to ensure serious incidents are reported and adequate safeguards are in place for machines after two employers were prosecuted for violations under The Workplace Safety and Health Act. Because of these prosecutions, penalties totalling more than $111,000 were ordered by the courts.
On April 12, 2016, a worker with Winkler-based Prinsco Canada Inc. was instructed to install rubber trim on the sharp edges of a resin mixer. While performing the work, the mixer remained in operation and its unguarded moving parts continued to rotate. A worker’s hand was caught in the rotating chain and sprocket, resulting in crushed and amputated fingers. Despite being legally required to do so, the employer did not notify WSH of the incident. In September 2018, the employer pleaded guilty to the charge of failing to ensure adequate safeguards for machines and for failing to notify WSH immediately about the serious incident. The employer was ordered to pay $54,252 in fines and surcharges.
On September 15, 2015, an AP Infrastructure Solutions GP Inc. (formerly Armtec GP Inc.) worker was using a Stamco roller to roll a metal pipe coupler. While placing the metal pipe, the worker’s hand became pinched between the rollers resulting in the amputation of all five digits. In October 2018, the employer pleaded guilty to failing to ensure adequate safeguards for its machines. The employer was ordered to pay $47,500 in fines and penalties and an additional $10,000 was awarded to the WSH Education Fund, the monies from which must be used to educate the public on matters of workplace safety and health.
