The Jets will open the league Showcase schedule against the last two Robertson Cup champions.
Wednesday afternoon features a rematch of the 2017 Robertson Cup Semi-Finals series. The Jets play the 2017 champions, the Lone Star Brahmas, at 2:00pm. The teams previously met in Blaine at the 2014 Showcase, where Janesville bested Lone Star, 4-1.
At 7:30pm Thursday evening, the Jets play the defending champions, the Shreveport Mudbugs, also from the South Division. Janesville and Shreveport met at the 2016 Showcase, where the Jets won a wild 6-5 contest with six goals scored in the third period.
Friday afternoon at 1:00pm, the Jets will play the Central Division’s Aberdeen Wings. The 2016-17 Central Division Playoff Champions shut out the Jets, 1-0, in the clubs’ most recent Showcase meeting in September 2015.
The Jets’ Showcase schedule concludes Saturday afternoon with a 12:30pm matinee versus the Bismarck Bobcats. The 2014 Showcase Tournament saw the Bobcats take a 4-1 decision over the Jets.
Since their inception in 2009, the Jets hold a 21-13-1 record in NAHL Showcase games. Janesville went 3-1 in last year’s event, defeating the Kenai River Brown Bears, the Johnstown Tomahawks, and the Minot Minotauros, and losing a close 2-1 contest to the Odessa Jackalopes.
