Over the past four weeks, the Reazzo material was poured on both the 100 and 300 level concourses, and in the arena's atrium, covering 75,000 square feet of flooring. The pouring process required a steady stream of 78 cement trucks and heavy machinery on the floor of Bell MTS Place. The Reazzo was pumped up through a massive mechanical arm that could stretch from the floor level all the way to the 300 level. To see how it all worked, watch the video below. While the Reazzo pouring has just wrapped up, the finishing touches, including grinding and polishing, will continue over the next few weeks.</p></div>Winnipeg Jets / http://winnipegjets.comThu, 03 Aug 2017 13:45:28 +0000Scheifele, Trouba, Lowry ready to take the next stephttps://www.nhl.com/jets/news/scheifele-trouba-lowry-ready-to-take-the-next-step/c-290572358<div class="article-item__preview"><p>Since their NHL careers began, they've been referred to as 'young players.'</p><p>Not anymore, says head coach Paul Maurice.</p><p>"The three players that I think transition out of me talking about them as young players (are Mark) Scheifele, (Adam) Lowry, and (Jacob) Trouba," Maurice said at the conclusion of the 2016-17 campaign.</p><p>"They've made huge improvements over those years in a short period of time to become drivers."</p><p>Scheifele and Trouba's NHL careers now span four seasons, while Lowry put the finishing touches on his third in early April.</p></div>Mitchell ClintonWed, 02 Aug 2017 18:55:34 +0000Jets counting on Mason, Kulikov to improve defensehttps://www.nhl.com/jets/news/winnipeg-jets-team-reset-2017/c-290460304<div class="article-item__preview"><p><em>After the NHL Draft, free agency and other offseason moves, NHL.com is taking a look at where each team stands.
