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. Jan 21 - 12:58 PM

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.

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 is projected to be sidelined until February with a lower-body injury.

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.

Mark Stuart wasn't 100 percent when he returned to the ice on Sunday.

He wasn't able to participate in every drill and he left before some extra skating at the end of the session, but he was pleased to take part. "It was good to get out there again," Stuart said. "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." Stuart believes he'll be back at in full sessions shortly.

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.

Mark Stuart wants to stay with the Winnipeg Jets.

"I believe in this team and this organization, and we're on the verge of doing good things here and I want to be a part of it," Stuart said. "I want to stay in Winnipeg." He can be an unrestricted free agent this summer, which of course has led to some speculation that he could be traded next week. Stuart can pick up penalty minutes, hits and blocks, but he doesn't get many points.

Mark Stuart was credited with 12 hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Washington.

That is an extremly high total for one game. Stuart has always been a good source of hits (148 in 46 games this season), so if hits are a category in your hockey pool, consider Stuart for a roster spot. He has some fantasy value especially since he is partnering with phenom Jacob Trouba.
