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.
Jan 31 - 1:29 PM

Matt Halischuk has been placed on the injured reserve list with an undisclosed injury.

The move is presumably retroactive to Thursday, which means that whatever's bothering Halischuk will sideline him for at least three games.

Halischuk was a healthy scratch in the Jets' first game, but got into the lineup for Saturday's tilt against San Jose because of Evander Kane's knee injury. The 26-year-old played on a line with Mathieu Perreault and Adam Lowry. He has no fantasy value.

Matt Halischuk (arm) has received the green light to return to action.

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. "You've definitely got to earn your way back off the IR," Halischuk said. "I just look at this as an opportunity to come in and see what I can do." He has notched seven points in 30 contests.

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).
