Therefore the following long list of players will all be healthy scratches for Game 3 Monday night: Ben Chiarot, Andrew Copp, Keaton Ellerby, T.J. Calliardi, Matt Halischuk, Jay Harrison, Connor Hellebuyck, Eric O’Dell, and Antony Peluso.

Matt Halischuk, Anthony Peluso, and Jay Harrison will each sit out on Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.

Halischuk has posted seven points and 55 hits over 46 games. Peluso has 86 PIMs and 96 hits in 48 games. And Harrison has posted 35 blocks and hits with 42 PIMs in just 20 games with the Jets.

Feb 25 - 3:38 PM

Tough news for Winnipeg Jets winger Matt Halischuk: it appears that his injury is even worse than week-to-week, whatever exactly that entails. Call it "out indefinitely" to be safe.

With two goals and seven points in 38 games this season and 71 points in 241 career NHL contests, it's unlikely that Halischuk will be making a dent in any fantasy lineups any time soon. Still, with the Jets putting up some serious offense, there was the chance he could have gotten a nice bump if healthy.
