Kyle Connor Addresses Attendance in Winnipeg



This year marks Kyle Connor's seventh season with the Winnipeg Jets. He recalled that during his initial five years, empty seats were a rare sight, positioning Winnipeg as one of the most passionate fanbases in the league.

However, this year has seen a significant shift.

The home opener witnessed over 2,000 vacant seats, and Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Kings wasn't any better.

"It was a little surprising, to be honest. In the first game, I didn't notice it right away. Ehlers and I (on Tuesday) had a conversation sitting on the bench. We looked around and were a bit taken aback. You'd like to see that support It's disappointing, for sure."

Despite this, the team's management appears confident that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the squad and remains hopeful for a turnaround.

"Winnipeg is known for its extremely passionate fans. We use that to our advantage. Playing at home, I don't know what our record is since we've been here, but it's pretty good."

Do you think the Jets will be forced to relocate once again?
