Mark Scheifele feels ready to play after an MCL injury and he's excited to play for Team Canada in the World Hockey Championships.
"I'll be good to go by then. The knee is feeling good," he said. "I've been continuing to skate and work out and get it stronger and it's feeling really good. And there was no surgery and it healed on its own so that's good, too." The Winnipeg Jets struggled without him in the lineup, finishing with a record of 6-9-3 down the stretch. The talented rookie posted 13 goals and 34 points in 63 games. Apr 23 - 7:21 AM

Coach Paul Maurice was asked how Mark Scheifele's loss to injury has impacted the Jets.

"First it was our mood. The day of the game after the injury you could feel the loss in the locker-room. From a purely tactical point of view, he's a player that was appreciated by the coach. He's really good in his own end, does all the little things right, the puck comes to him and he makes really smart decisions with it," said Maurice. "Statistically he was a big driver of our offense. Net goals against, red-zone shots and all the funny stuff we look at, his numbers were top one or two in every category. He didn't give much up defensively and he was a part of goals scored. Not all of our offense, but a good chunk of it, came when he was on the ice. We miss him." He's expected to be a big part of the team's future, but for the present he probably won't play again this year because of a sprained MCL.

It should be noted that this is just an early indication and the Jets have not confirmed the extent of Scheifele's injury yet. Losing him for the rest of the season would be a big blow to Winnipeg's playoff aspirations. The rookie center has 13 goals and 34 points in 63 games this season.

Mark Scheifele had to be helped off the ice during the second period after taking a hit on his knee from Islanders defenseman Calvin de Haan.

"We'll have Mark tested (Wednesday) morning and get a real good understanding of what we're dealing with," said coach Paul Maurice. "I'm not going to speculate on what we think in terms of the length of this. We'll know everything we need to know by the time we meet tomorrow." It isn't clear if he'll be available to play on Thursday at this time.
Mar 5 - 7:25 AM

Mark Scheifele didn't skate on Thursday because of the flu.

Feb 8 - 5:21 PM

Winnipeg bench boss Paul Maurice praised the defensive skills of rookie Mark Scheifele before Thursday's game against Washington.

"He thinks the game very well in his end and plays off people well. He's got a calm and a confidence down there that you don't see in young guys," said Maurice. "He's not chasing the puck and he's picked up our structure of what our defensive zone is supposed to look like very, very quickly." Ironically, Scheifele posted a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals. It was just the second time in his last 13 games that he's finished on the negative side of the ledger.
Feb 7 - 6:30 AM

Mark Scheifele continued to impress Tuesday night with a goal and an assist in the Jets' loss to Nashville.

Rookie Mark Scheifele of the Winnipeg Jets has four points (two goals) in his past four games.

Only two NHL rookies -- Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon and Tampa's Tyler Johnson, both with 29 points -- have more points than Scheifele's 27 (9G, 18A). Interestingly, in five of the six games in which fellow Winnipeg rookie Jacob Trouba has scored this year, Scheifele has also found the back of the net. "We just push each other. Whenever he scores, I want to score. I don't want to be shown up by him," said Scheifele with a grin. "And whenever I score, he wants to score. It's good."
Jan 20 - 11:17 AM

Mark Scheifele had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 victory versus Calgary.
