Joel Armia notched his first career NHL goal in the Jets’ 4-1 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

It’s the game-winner, too. Armia was sent to the Jets as part of the Evander Kane trade. He has played eight NHL games (seven this year with the Jets), and this counts as his first NHL point as well. Even though he is a former first-round pick with considerable upside, it’s too early to utilize him in yearly leagues. Drew Stafford, Nikolaj Ehlers and Mathieu Perreault picked up the other goals. Blake Wheeler had two assists.

Joel Armia was promoted to the third line during Tuesday's loss to Calgary.

He skated with Alex Burmistrov and Nikolaj Ehlers during the second period, which bumped Chris Thorburn to the fourth line. Armia has two shots and no points in three games with the Jets this year.

Joel Armia will make his Jets debut on Friday against the Rangers.

The 21-year-old forward will be playing in his second career NHL game, and will skate to the right of Matt Halischuk and Andrew Copp. Through 39 games since the beginning of last season, Armia has posted five goals, 16 points and 38 PIMs in the AHL.

The Winnipeg Jets have assigned Joel Armia back to the minors.

The 22-year-old spent nine games with the Jets, but didn't suit up in any of them. The former first round pick has yet to make an impact in the NHL. Armia has three goals and seven points in 15 AHL games in '15-16.

The Jets have scratched Joel Armia, Adam Pardy and Paul Postma for Friday's game against the Blackhawks.

Armia hasn't played in a game with the Jets this season, but has offensive upside. Pardy and Postma are depth defensemen with no fantasy upside. Keep an eye on Armia in the coming years.

Joel Armia is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Columbus.

Armia was recalled from the AHL on Nov. 23, but he still hasn't suited up in an NHL game in '15-16. Paul Postma and Adam Pardy will also be healthy scratches on Thursday night.

Joel Armia, Ben Chiarot and Paul Postma will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Colorado.

While Postma has played just twice this season, and Chiarot's biggest statistical contribution are his 33 hits over 13 games, Armia at least represents a ray of offensive hope. The 22-year-old forward has posted 22 goals and 67 points in 124 goals in the AHL since 2012-13. He has seven points in 15 games for Manitoba this season, so keep an eye on him should he warm up in Winnipeg.

Joel Armia is attending his first training camp with the Winnipeg Jets and he made his preseason debut on Tuesday.

"I feel really good," Armia said. "I think it's been a good camp so far but there's lot of days ahead."

Armia was acquired from Buffalo in the Evander Kane deal and he posted eight points in 22 games with Winnipeg's AHL affiliate last year.

Armia was part of the trade that saw Evander Kane go to Buffalo. "Of course it was probably hard for me," the 22-year-old from Pori, Finland said Saturday. "A little bit harder because it was my first trade and that doesn’t happen in Europe a lot." The 22-year-old has had a disappointing career in North America so far. He only managed to score 12 goals and 33 points in the AHL last season.
