Nobody knows what the New Year will bring with it. In terms of hockey though, we know that Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice will achieve a very important and distinguished milestone in his career, and it shouldn’t take much more than the first week or so of the new calendar to accomplish it. Entering Monday night’s game against San Jose – the last home tilt of four in a row for Winnipeg, the Jets’ bench boss has amassed 498 NHL career wins. Since being named Jets head coach 12 months ago, Maurice has guided the Jets to a cumulative record of 36-24-12 over parts of two seasons. However, the majority of his coaching wins leading up to the impending 500th came with the Carolina Hurricanes. In fact, he totaled 323 wins with the ‘Canes and 384 overall with that franchise, which included two seasons as the Hartford Whalers before the team relocated south to Raleigh, North Carolina in 1997. Maurice, who will turn 48 later this month, started his coaching career right out of major junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires. As a player in the OHL, Maurice suffered a serious eye injury in his first season in Windsor (1984-85). He managed to play four years with the Spitfires, but realized his career on the ice was likely done, as the vision in his right eye never improved. From there, the Sault Ste. Marie product turned his attention to coaching, and quickly accepted an assistant’s position with the Spitfires the very next season after his junior career was complete in 1988-89. At 28, he was named the head coach of the Whalers, a position he held through the transfer of that franchise to Carolina, where he spent another 11 seasons in total. His NHL coaching career also included a pair of seasons as the bench boss of the Toronto Maple Leafs (2006-07 and 2007-08). “It just means you’ve been around too long, I guess,” joked Maurice, when asked recently about his upcoming milestone. Seriously though, no coach wants to acknowledge they had anything to do with their personal record or success as a coach. Most – if not all – will credit the players they coached and deflect to them exclusively as the reason for one victory, never mind 500. But when win No. 500 happens, Maurice’s players will share in the moment as much as anyone. Meanwhile, Maurice is also expected to coach his 1,200th game in the NHL later this season. It’s expected he’ll officially hit the mark on April 9 when the Jets are in Colorado. Chiarot Emerging Even though Ben Chiarot is playing like a seasoned veteran on the blue line since his call-up from the American Hockey League in early December, the Jets defenceman has not yet been told by the team to get a permanent residence in Winnipeg. He admitted last weekend that he’s still living in a downtown Winnipeg hotel, although one would expect that will change sooner-than-later based on his play, and the organization will inform him to find more established digs in the city. Since joining the club 14 games ago, the Hamilton native has been stellar as a ‘D’ partner with Dustin Byfuglien, playing 20 minutes per game. As a result, it’s highly unlikely he’ll be sent back to St. John’s at all this season. It’s also commonly thought by those that cover the team on a regular basis that Chiarot is now too valuable based on his age (23) and play of late for the Jets to risk losing him to another NHL team as a waiver claim. Therefore, even when the club starts to return the likes of Zach Bogosian, Toby Enstrom, Jacob Trouba, Grant Clitsome and Mark Stuart from injury. that Chiarot will still be part of the team’s defence corps at the NHL level. NOTES: Until Winnipeg’s win over Minnesota on Dec. 27, the Jets had dropped three straight overtime/shootout decisions (Philadelphia, Colorado, Anaheim). However, they have still lost two straight overtime decisions at home….Winnipeg is 6-1-3 against the Metropolitan Division this season and 11-4-4 against the Eastern Conference….Forward Michael Frolik is tied for second in the league with three shorthanded goals this season. He and New York Rangers forward Rick Nash are slightly behind the Los Angeles Kings’ Tyler Toffoli at four….With 26 goals on the season, Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin leads the entire NHL. And of the Top 20 scorers in the league, Seguin has also recorded the most shots (160)…..Winnipeg’s penalty kill on the road is second in the league at 88.9 percent. That trails only Chicago (90 percent)….The Jets goal differential is plus-8 entering Monday’s game, the highest of the season.
