Coach Paul Maurice said it's "possible" that the Jets may have Shawn Matthias (upper body) for Thursday's season opener.

Matthias posted 28 points in 71 games split between Toronto and Columbus, the points were a career high. He has five straight seasons of at least 21 points so we'd expect more of the same for the veteran pivot.

Shawn Matthias is considered week-to-week with an upper-body injury.

"He's healing faster than we originally thought so I'll have to stay I still don't know," coach Paul Maurice said when asked if Matthias will be ready for the season opener. "He may be 100 percent healthy by opening night but I can't tell you how many practices he's had heading into that so that will weigh into it as well." Matthias was hurt during a preseason match last week.

Shawn Matthias exited Tuesday's preseason match because of an upper-body injury.

The Avalanche desperately wanted to re-sign Shawn Matthias, who inked a deal with Winnipeg.

If that was the case it is hard to believe. Matthias actually ended up signing for $2.125 million, a lower AVV than he had last season. Instead the Avs put their money on former Calgary Flame Joe Colborne. We will see if that works out for them.

The Winnipeg Jets have inked Shawn Matthias to a two-year deal worth $4.25M.

The 28-year-old center is coming off five straight healthy seasons of double-digit goals and 20-plus points, including 12 goals and a new career high of 28 points last season with Toronto and Colorado. The quality depth winger however does not offer much fantasy value.

Shawn Matthias now has 10 points in 17 games with the Avalanche.

The 28-year-old collected his fifth goal and assist during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville. Matthias is no revelation for Colorado, but that kind of production can get a job on any team.
Apr 6 - 1:45 AM

Shawn Matthias had the game-winning goal in Monday's 4-3 win over Nashville.

He gave the Avalanche a 4-1 lead in the third period and was credited with the winner after the Predators nearly came back to tie it. Matthias cashed in on a breakaway with 7:47 remaining. It was his 10th goal of the season and eighth point in 14 games with Colorado.

Shawn Matthias has three goals and four assists in 11 contests since joining the Colorado Avalanche.

The Avalanche acquired Matthias from Toronto on Feb. 21. At the time he had a modest six goals and 17 points in 51 games with the Maple Leafs. "It's been a great fit. I fit in well with the style of play and the guys," said Matthias. "It's been a good experience, a good opportunity, and this is a good team and I'm playing with two great hockey players." Matthias has been playing alongside Gabriel Landeskog and Carl Soderberg. If that line stays intact then it wouldn't be shocking for Matthias to stay strong for the remainder of the season.

It's unclear if he will be available to play Wednesday against the San Jose Sharks.
