Tomorrow night's game between the Winnipeg Jets and the Seattle Kraken has been postponed, as confirmed by the NHLPR today.

The postponement is due to a winter storm warning that is in the forecast for the city of Winnipeg.

In a statement, the NHL said, "Tomorrow night's game between the Seattle Kraken and Winnipeg Jets at Canada Life Centre has been postponed due to expected extreme weather conditions in Winnipeg beginning later today. The game has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 1, at 1 p.m. CT. The decision to postpone the game at this time was made in order to minimize the potential disruption to the regular-season schedule in the event the severe weather that is expected to hit the Winnipeg area were not only to force cancellation of tomorrow night's game, but also prevents timely and necessary post-game travel, including, specifically, the Jets' ability to travel for their game in Florida on Friday, April 15."

With the game now scheduled for May 1st, this means the regular season has been extended by two days, as the 2021-22 campaign was set to end on Friday, April 29th

Environment Canada currently has Winnipeg under a Winter Storm Warning and says that the city is expected to see anywhere from 30-50 cm of snow along with 60-70 km/h winds over starting on Tuesday night.

The Jets will now have to wait until Friday before they're in action again, when they take on the Panthers in Florida.
