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.

He was injured on Tuesday during a fight with Nicolas Deslauriers of the Buffalo Sabres. Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian and Jacob Trouba are already out for the Jets, so the team will be missing its top-four defense group. Julien Brouillette will get to play with Stuart injured.

"It's tough, because you wait all summer to get back out there with the guys and then I had a little setback. I felt good today. Not 100 percent, but it was good to get back out there again."

Mark Stuart is looking forward to see what coach Paul Maurice has prepared for training camp.

"I'm excited and I'm sure he is to start the season with this team. We've had some time to put things in place and it's going to start in training camp," said Stuart, who signed a four-year, $10.5 million contract in the summer. "We're not starting mid-season where we've got a game in two days. We got a good grasp of that last season but it'll be nice to start training camp from Day 1 with all that and go from there." Maurice took over from Claude Noel during the 2013-14 campaign and he got an extension as well during the off-season. Stuart is also just three games away from reaching the 500-mark in his career.
