He underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his forearm back in December. However, he may have to wait a little longer before coach Paul Maurice reinserts him into the lineup.

Matt Halischuk is the latest member of the walking wounded for the Winnipeg Jets.

Halischuk left Saturday's game with 1:54 left in the first period after blocking a shot in the right arm from Dallas Stars forward Alex Chaisson. The Jets said it was an upper-body injury and that he's more than day-to-day. "We have to get (him) checked out a little further," said Jets head coach Claude Noel. "But he will not be a player, he'll probably be out for a while." Halischuk scored his third goal of the season and collected his seventh point in 30 games on Saturday and has been an effective player on a line with Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik. If Halischuk is moved to the injured-reserve list, it's possible the Jets could place a call to the minors for center Eric O'Dell, who had 12 goals and 28 points in 27 games with the St. John's IceCaps this season. The Jets are already without Evander Kane (lower-body), Zach Bogosian (groin), Jim Slater (sports hernia) and Paul Postma (blood clot in his leg).

Matt Halischuk is waiting to make his Winnipeg debut after being a healthy scratch for the first three games of the year.

The Jets play three times in the next four nights, beginning with Thursday's game at Minnesota, so Halischuk could get used during that time if coach Claude Noel wants to use a fresh player.

Matt Halischuk scored Winnipeg's only goal in a pre-season loss to Ottawa Sunday night.

Mon, Sep 16, 2013 09:30:00 AM

Matt Halischuk has agreed to terms with the Winnipeg Jets.

The Jets didn't disclose the terms of the contract. Halischuk had five goals and 11 points in 36 games with Nashville last season. He became an unrestricted free agent after the Predators decided against sending him a qualifying offer.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 06:28:00 PM

The Nashville Predators will not extend qualifying offers to Matt Halischuk or Jonathon Blum if they cannot trade them.

It's unlikely the Preds will get any offers of substance since both players will become unrestricted free agents without qualifying offers. The deadline for that is Tuesday, which means GM David Poiile will likely spend the day attempting to procure anything of value for the two disappointments. Halischuk had five goals and 11 points in 36 games in 2013, while Blum had one goal and seven points in 35 contests.
