Jets deny exchange with Jacobs; Haggerty stands by story

The chairman and governor of the Winnipeg Jets, Mark Chipman, issued the following statement on behalf of True North Sports & Entertainment Limited regarding a report today from Comcast SportsNet New England of an exchange between one of the alternate governors of the Jets and Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs:

I was disappointed to learn today of a report which claimed an exchange took place between an Alternate Governor of the Winnipeg Jets and Jeremy Jacobs of the Boston Bruins at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting. I was present throughout all BOG proceedings and can categorically state that no such exchange between Mr. Jacobs and either one of our Alternate Governors - Patrick Phillips or Kevin Cheveldayoff - ever took place. Any suggestion otherwise is completely false.

Joe Haggerty, the author of the story in question, stands by his report.
