Date: Team: Pos:

Bryan Little scored his first goal of the season during Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.

It was his second game back from injury, and he fired four shots on net in the effort. With two points in three-ish games, it would seem the veteran pivot hasn't missed a step.
Dec 2 - 2:33 AM

With his pair of helpers during Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers, Blake Wheeler now has five points over his last five games.

That's mighty impressive from the veteran winger, but it shouldn't come as much surprise. He has 11 assists and 19 points in 26 games thus far.
Dec 2 - 2:32 AM

Patrik Laine popped another pair of goals during Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.

He now has goals in consecutive games with three overall. For the season the league's youngest sniper has 15 goals and 21 points in 26 games.
Dec 2 - 2:30 AM

Michael Hutchinson stopped all four shots he faced in relief of Connor Hellebuyck.

Hutchinson saw just over 12 minutes of action. He's the likely starter in the Jets' next game after Hellebuyck surrendered six goals tonight.
Dec 2 - 2:29 AM

Connor Hellebuyck nearly made it to the third period during Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Oilers.

He stopped just 23 of 29 shots, including just four of seven on the kill. Yikes, that's a disastrous start. He's now 2-3 over his last five starts with goals against totals of two, five, zero, two, and tonight's six. His record now stands at 9-9 with a 2.78 GAA and a .908 save percentage.
Dec 2 - 2:28 AM

Marko Dano was OK to play on Thursday versus Edmonton.

He exited Tuesday's game against New Jersey after he was hit in the eye area by a high stick, but he was fine to get back in the lineup. Dano had two shots, two penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating against the Oilers.
Dec 2 - 2:02 AM

Kyle Connor, Alexander Burmistrov and Mark Stuart will each be scratched against the Oilers on Thursday.

Of the three, it's the rookie Connor with the most points. Albeit merely four through 19 games this season. He also carries the only goal between them, which indicates how much fantasy value the pair of veterans have.
Dec 1 - 7:51 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Connor Hellebuyck will indeed face the Oilers on Thursday.

The young netminder has a nice winning streak going of two whole games, having stopped 65 of 67 shots combined. The 23-year-old boasts much better numbers against Western foes this season with a .939 save percentage with 17 goals against and six wins in nine games.
Dec 1 - 6:13 PM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) will indeed return to the Jets' lineup on Thursday.

Perreault had declared himself ready to return, so this doesn't come as a big surprise. It's worth noting that he will start the contest on the fourth line after missing nearly a month, so if you're hoping for a big showing in his return then you might want to temper those expectations.
Dec 1 - 3:17 PM

Winnipeg is expected to start Connor Hellebuyck on Thursday.

Hellebuyck will be going for his third straight win. He has a 9-8-0 record, 2.54 GAA and .915 save percentage in 18 games this season.
Dec 1 - 11:53 AM

Nikolaj Ehlers leads the Jets with 16 assists in 25 games this season.

"We certainly appreciate (him)," coach Paul Maurice said. "I also think he has a quite a bit more upside to what he's doing. He's in a bit of a cold spell even though he's putting numbers up. He's had a bunch of chances in alone on the 'tender. The other teams are very aware of his quickness." Ehlers hasn't scored a goal in the past 10 games, but he has collected eight helpers during that span. He has 20 points so far this season and he has been skating alongside Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine.
Dec 1 - 9:48 AM

Mathieu Perreault (upper body) has declared himself ready to play.

Coach Paul Maurice said if Perreault feels good after Thursday's morning skate then he could be back in the lineup versus the Edmonton Oilers. He hasn't played since Nov. 3 due to an upper-body injury.
Nov 30 - 2:53 PM

Marko Dano (eye) may be available to play Thursday night.

He has another check up Wednesday night and if all goes well then he could play against Edmonton. Dano was hit in the eye by a high stick on Tuesday night and it forced to leave the game.
Nov 30 - 2:50 PM

Julian Melchiori has been returned to AHL Manitoba.

Toby Enstrom is back with the team after he left for Sweden due to a personal matter. Melchiori didn't play during his recent NHL call-up. He skated in four games with the Jets earlier this month, though.
Nov 30 - 2:47 PM

Toby Enstrom (personal) has returned and he skated Wednesday morning.

He missed three games while attending to a personal matter back home in Sweden. Enstrom is expected to be back in the lineup on Thursday.
