Kirk Muller Joins Dennis Maruk on Elite List

Thursday night, the Winnipeg Jets took down the Colorado Rockies in the final contest between the two teams before they could potentially meet down the road in the playoffs.  The victory not just clinched the top spot in the Campbell Conference for Winnipeg, but had the Jets win the season series 3-1 by outscoring their expansion cousins 14-9 in the four games.  If there was an award for the top player in the four game series it would go to Allan Bester who started each of the games and posted a .925 save percentage in those four contests.

 

The final game saw Kirk Muller register his second 100-point season in the Winnipeg Jets uniform making him just the second player in franchise history with multiple triple digit point seasons.  The alternate captain joins Dennis Maruk on the inclusive season when the Jets legend posted consecutive 100-point seasons in 1983 and 1984.  This season has saw Muller jump into the top ten in franchise scoring.
