Julian Melchiori, who is usually a healthy scratch, found out that the Jets aren't afraid to use him.
Melchiori played the final game before Winnipeg's five-day break and he skated on the top pairing with Dustin Byfuglien. He finished the game having played a career-high 22:02. "I was thrown right into the fire there," said Melchiori. "There was a little rust at some times, but as the game went along, I felt better. The (coaches) put me in a pretty good situation there. When you're playing as a defenceman, the confidence comes when you play and playing with (Byfuglien) was a great step. The Jets have returned Melchiori to the minors for now, but expect him to be recalled once the bye ends. Feb 25 - 9:15 AM
