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.

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.
Jan 15 - 2:53 AM

Adam Lowry will play in his 200th career NHL game on Saturday against the Kings.

The second-generation NHL'er, whose still just 23-years-old, has been an excellent representation of the Lowry name. He's posted 25 goals and 53 points with 116 hits and 126 PIMs thus far, basically a chip off the ol' block of his father, Dave, who was an effective menace from 1985 to 2003.
Jan 14 - 8:08 PM

Shawn Matthias will play in his 500th career NHL game on Saturday against the Kings.

The 28-year-old has been a well-traveled forward, playing for Florida, Vancouver, Toronto, Colorado and now Winnipeg after being drafted 47th overall by Detroit in 2006. He's posted 87 goals and 166 points, including six goals and seven points this season for the Jets. He may never be a top-line player, but every team wants a player like Shawn Matthias.
Jan 14 - 8:05 PM

Brandon Tanev and Julian Melchiori will be scratched against the Kings on Saturday.

Tanev has posted four points in addition to his 24 PIMs, 27 blocks, and 89 hits during this 35 games of action. Pretty good, all things considered.
Jan 14 - 7:59 PM

It'll be Michael Hutchinson's turn in net as the Jets face the Kings on Saturday.

It's been nearly a month since Hutchinson has picked up the vaunted "W". He's gone 0-3 in four games with 12 goals against in that span. He has an .893 save percentage in 18 games thus far.
Jan 14 - 7:41 PM

Mark Stuart scored his first goal of the season in Friday's 4-3 loss to Arizona.

Before last night, Stuart had been a healthy scratch in each of Winnipeg's games since Nov. 29, but he suited up because of an injury to Ben Chiarot. His goal at the 2:46 mark of the third period cut Arizona's lead to 4-2 at the time.
Jan 14 - 10:30 AM

Shawn Matthias scored in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

Matthias opened the scoring at the 3:43 mark of the first period, but the Coyotes responded by scoring four straight goals before the end of the opening frame. Matthias now has six goals and one assist in 20 games this season. He isn't on the fantasy radar.
