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." Nov 15 - 1:02 PM

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.

Jan 28 - 8:26 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.
Jan 21 - 12:58 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 8:01 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.
Jan 10 - 2:18 PM

Mark Stuart was on the ice with a few other injured Jet players on Friday.

He has been out of action with a serious lower-body injury since he was involved in a fight with the Sabres' Nicolas Deslauriers on December 16th, and will not be ready to return until February at the earliest. Well, at least he is making some progress in his recovery.
Jan 3 - 3:04 PM

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.
