Mark Stuart (hand) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Feb 15 - 2:34 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have scored the first goal in a game just four times in 18 games this season.

The Jets are in the middle of a bad slump, as they have a 1-5-1 record in November and they were pounded 7-0 by the Preds on Saturday. "Honestly, they scored seven goals, so the start is pretty much a blur to me right now," said Jets defenceman Mark Stuart. "There's not a ton to say. When you lose like that, you're pretty low, but that's the thing about this league and being a professional, you can't afford to be low for too long. We need to stay together in here, because if we don't, it's only going to get worse."

Mark Stuart was credited with team-high four hits in a 7-0 loss to Nashville on Saturday.

Stuart also got four minor penalties over the course of the game. Two were for unsportsmanlike conduct, one was for tripping, and one was for interference. He now has 18 PIM in 18 games.

Mark Stuart got his first goal of the season in Winnipeg's 4-1 win over the New York Rangers.

Mark Stuart made it interesting when he scored the first goal of playoff career.

His marker made it 3-2 for the Ducks with plenty of time left in the third, but it didn't take Anaheim long to restore their two-goal advantage when Ryan Kesler got his second goal of the game. Sami Vatanen sealed the win and a first-round sweep when he scored into an empty net. Stuart contributed two points, 22 hits and 10 blocks in four postseason matches.

Mark Stuart (lower body) has been activated by the Jets and he'll return Thursday.

He will be paired with Jacob Trouba, as Winnipeg is finally healthy again on the back end. "It's good to finally get a look at that group all together," said coach Paul Maurice. "It's the first time all year that this group of D will play together as a unit." The Jets have nine healthy defensemen on the roster right now. Jay Harrison is expected to sit in the press box along with Adam Pardy and Paul Postma.

Winnipeg moved Mark Stuart to injured reserve in order to activate Mathieu Perreault for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.

Stuart is dealing with a lower-body issue, but he may be back in the lineup as early as Thursday night.
Wed, Jan 28, 2015 08:26:00 AM

Mark Stuart (lower body) won't play in Wednesday's contest.

Jets coach Paul Maurice feels Stuart is probably healthy enough to play, but with the All-Star break just around the corner, he could benefit from the extra rest. The decision to scratch Stuart also corresponds with Jacob Trouba's (upper body) return to the lineup, so someone had to be scratched anyways.

Mark Stuart took a maintenance day Tuesday because of a lower-body issue.

It isn't clear if the ailment will keep him out of the lineup on Wednesday night against Columbus. Stuart sat out nine games in December and early January because of the same injury.
Wed, Jan 21, 2015 08:01:00 AM

The Winnipeg Jets get defenseman Mark Stuart back after a brief stint on IR.

Stuart, 30, has nine points and 37 PIM in 32 games so far in 2014-15. With Stuart and Tobias Enstrom back in the lineup, we should see a more typical Winnipeg alignment against the Arizona Coyotes.

Mark Stuart could be back in the Jets' lineup Saturday night against Los Angeles.

He has been practising with his teammates and seems to have recovered from a lower-body injury that has kept him out of action since December 16th. If you need some PIMs from your blueline, get ready to activate Stuart.
