Nikolaj Ehlers snapped a five-game goalless skid with his 15th goal of 2016-17 on Wednesday night.

He finished Wednesday's game versus the Coyotes with a game-high six shots, but was demoted to the fourth line in the third. "I think Nikky's got a little more in his game," coach Paul Maurice said. "And he showed it (by scoring a goal). So it was good." Despite the mini goal slide, Ehlers has amassed 10 points in his last 10 contests.

Bryan Little picked up two points in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Arizona.

He got his eighth goal of the season after a shot from Josh Morrissey went off him and he picked up his 11th helper on a marker by Blake Wheeler. Little has collected 19 points in 25 outings this season.
Jan 19 - 9:55 AM

Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 30 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

After being recalled from the AHL on Tuesday, Pavelec made his 2016-17 debut tonight. He gave up two goals in the first 8:50 of the game, but he settled in nicely after that. With Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson struggling so badly, there's a chance Pavelec can grab the Jets' starting job for the rest of the season. With Pavelec, there's always an issue with consistency, so don't be surprised if he falls into a slump sooner than later. He's only worth an add in deeper fantasy leagues.

Blake Wheeler found the back of the net in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Arizona.

Wheeler's goal at the 3:03 mark of the second period tied the game at two. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 20 minutes of ice time. The 30-year-old has 14 goals and 37 points in 48 games this season. Bryan Little, Andrew Copp, Joel Armia, Jacob Trouba and Nikolaj Ehlers also scored for Winnipeg in this one.

To make room for newly recalled Ondrej Pavelec, Michael Hutchinson will sit out as the third goaltender.

Brandon Tanev and Julian Melchiori will be scratched along with the netminder who made 27 saves in a 5-2 loss the last time he was between the pipes. Pavelec is a desperate measure to change the look of the Jets crease before a playoff spot gets too far ahead of them.
Jan 18 - 7:29 PM

Patrik Laine (concussion) skated before Wednesday's morning session.

However, there is still no timetable for his return, according to coach Paul Maurice. Laine has missed Winnipeg's last five games with a concussion and the team has won just one time during that span.
Jan 18 - 11:46 AM

Ondrej Pavelec will play Wednesday when the Jets host Arizona.

Coach Paul Maurice announced the decision after Tuesday's practice. Pavelec was called up by the Jets in an attempt to shake up a team that has been struggling.
Jan 17 - 3:48 PM

Ben Chiarot (upper body) has been moved to injured reserve by Winnipeg.

He is dealing with an upper-body injury and is retroactive to Jan. 11. In 43 games this season, Chiarot has contributed six assists
Jan 17 - 11:12 AM

Ondrej Pavelec has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.

He has posted an 8-7-2 record with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage with the AHL's Manitoba Moose this season. Winnipeg has one win in the last six games and the goaltending hasn't been steady this year, so Pavelec could get some playing time.
Jan 17 - 11:09 AM

Mark Scheifele had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 loss to San Jose on Monday.

Scheifele now has 20 goals and 42 points in 44 games this season. Josh Morrissey netted his second goal in 47 contests in the losing effort.
Jan 16 - 6:43 PM

Michael Hutchinson kicked out 27 of 31 shots in Winnipeg's 5-2 loss to San Jose Monday afternoon.

Hutchinson has now allowed at least three goals in three of his last four starts. He's also lost his last four decisions with his last victory coming on Dec. 22.
Jan 16 - 6:39 PM

Michael Hutchinson will play between the pipes on Monday.

Hutchinson is playing in his fourth straight game. He has a 3.18 GAA and .896 save percentage in 19 games.
Jan 16 - 2:04 PM

The Jets appear ready to extend Paul Maurice's tenure with the club this summer.

The long-time coach is in his fourth season with Winnipeg, and has posted a 116-99-30 record with a playoff appearance thus far. While he's become known for his underwhelming talent utilization, he's also had terrible goalies who've posted a collective .904 in 20 years of NHL coaching. There's no word yet how many years the Jets are interested in giving him, but they at least seem intent on preventing a "lame duck" situation for the 2017-18 campaign.
Jan 15 - 1:56 PM

Michael Hutchinson couldn't grab a win as the Winnipeg Jets fell 3-2 in overtime to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Hutchinson fell to 4-9-3 on the season with poor individual numbers (3.18 GAA, .896 save percentage, just one shutout). He hasn't grabbed a win during the calendar year of 2017 yet.
Jan 15 - 2:55 AM

Dustin Byfuglien was able to get on the board, but the Winnipeg Jets fell 3-2 to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime on Saturday.

Byfuglien collected his seventh goal of 2016-17 while enjoying a busy game overall: two PIM, three SOG, three hits and four blocked shots in 27:18 TOI. It's been a somewhat disappointing season for the big defenseman, yet he still knows how to fill up a stat sheet like few others when he's on his game.
