Dustin Byfuglien is dealing with a lower-body injury.

He was injured during Thursday's game against the Kings after he collided with Jeff Carter, and he was unable to suit up in Friday night's tilt against the Ducks. Byfuglien is considered day-to-day for now. With Winnipeg all but eliminated from playoff contention, there's no point in them rushing him back into the lineup.

Mathieu Perreault picked up an assist in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

He extended his point streak to five games in the process. Perreault helped set up Josh Morrissey's power play goal at the 6:08 mark of the second period to tie the game at one. He finished with a minus-2 rating and no shots on goal in 18:37 of ice time. Perreault has 10 goals and 26 assists in 58 games.

Blake Wheeler picked up an assist in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

He registered the primary helper on Josh Morrissey's power play goal in the second period. Wheeler has now amassed eight points in his last six contests. He has 22 goals and 42 assists in 75 games.

After going over two months between starts earlier this season, Michael Hutchinson admits he has a chip on his shoulder.

The Jets goalie has used that as a source of motivation. He's started three of Winnipeg's last four games and he has two wins to show for it. "When you sit out that many games, it kind of puts a little bit of a chip on your shoulder," said Hutchinson. "It's a little bit of added motivation right there to go out and show I can play. Other than that, it's been (about) staying confident in my abilities." He has a 6-12-3 record with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.

Michael Hutchinson stopped 32 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

After a very long layoff in goal which saw Hutchinson play less than 55 minutes in two months, it is very encouraging to see him regain NHL caliber form in goal for the Jets. The Jets will most likely choose to protect Connor Helleybuyck from the Vegas expansion, leaving Hutchinson exposed. If Hutchinson can show he can still be a quality NHL starter in the final games of the season, he might just be snatched up by the Golden Knights. For now we'd stay far away from the 27-year-old netminder. His record dropped to 6-12-3 with a 3.06 goals against average and a .900 save percentage.

Josh Morrissey picked up his 6th goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Morrissey tipped a Blake Wheeler shot passed Bernier and into the empty cage for his first career power play marker. He has now put together an all-around rookie campaign, picking up 20 points in 75 games this season, while averaging 19:21 of ice time. Although he isn't worth owning in fantasy pools yet, he has some offensive potential and can be someone to keep an eye on for the future.

Brenden Kichton will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Kichton was recalled from the minors on Thursday, but he didn't play against the Kings last night and he won't play against the Ducks tonight. He has no fantasy value. Dustin Byfuglien, Toby Enstrom, Paul Postma, Ben Chiarot, Ondrej Pavelec, Shawn Matthias and Marko Dano are all out due to injury.

Marko Dano (undisclosed) won't suit up in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

There isn't much information about Dano's injury, but beat reporter Ken Wiebe insisted that he isn't serving as a healthy scratch. Dano also missed yesterday's game against the Los Angeles Kings. He's day-to-day for now.

Dustin Byfuglien won't play against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

He hit the ice for the pre-game warmup, but he obviously wasn't feeling good enough to suit up. Byfuglien left Thursday's game against Los Angeles after he collided with Jeff Carter. We'll consider him day-to-day for now.

Jacob Trouba will suit up in Friday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Trouba has missed five consecutive games because of the injury. He has six goals and 21 assists in 52 games this season. Trouba averages 24:49 of ice time per game for the Jets this season.
Mar 24 - 9:34 PM

Michael Hutchinson will get the start in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Hutchinson has won each of his last two outings and he's given up a combined two goals during that span. He has a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage this season.
Mar 24 - 9:31 PM

Brenden Kichton has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.

Kichton has no goals and 18 assists in 54 AHL games this season. With the Jets out of the playoff hunt, this is an opportunity to give Kichton his first taste of NHL experience.

Patrik Laine ended his goal drought on the man advantage Thursday night.

He was credited with his first power-play goal since Jan. 26 on a shot that took a couple of fortuitous bounces. Laine leads all NHL rookies with 34 goals and 61 points in 66 games.
Mar 24 - 11:26 AM

Dustin Byfuglien had to leave the Jets' tilt with Los Angeles with an apparent injury.

Byfuglien left the game late in the third period with an undisclosed injury following a collision with Kings' forward Jeff Carter. It was not before he picked up an assist in the game. The hulking blue-liner has 48 points in 74 games played.
Mar 24 - 4:48 AM

Connor Hellebuyck allowed five goals on 36 shots in a 5-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

Hellebuyck was the victim of special teams on this night. Four of the Kings five goals were on the power-play and all three in the third were with the man advantage. He's been hit and miss all season and was clearly miss on this night. He brings a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage into his next start.
