Winnipeg has acquired Jay Harrison from Carolina in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The selection originally belonged to the Ottawa Senators. In 20 games with the Hurricanes, Harrison has four points and 42 penalty minutes. Winnipeg's defense corps has been decimated with injury, so Harrison should be able to step direcntly into the lineup.

Mark Stuart is projected to be sidelined until February with a lower-body injury.

He was injured on Tuesday during a fight with Nicolas Deslauriers of the Buffalo Sabres. Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian and Jacob Trouba are already out for the Jets, so the team will be missing its top-four defense group. Julien Brouillette will get to play with Stuart injured.

Mark Stuart didn't participate in Wednesday's skills competition.

He was the only player on the Jets who played in Tuesday's win over the Buffalo who didn't take part in the event. An update on his status is expected to come after Thursday's practice. Stuart may have been hurt in a fight with Sabres forward Nicolas Deslauriers.

Michael Frolik notched a goal and a helper in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over Buffalo.

His third shorthanded goal of the year turned out to be the game winner. Frolik has chipped in seven markers and 16 points in 32 games.
Dec 17 - 9:42 AM

Evander Kane produced a goal and an assist in Winnipeg's 5-1 win against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

He has five goals and 12 points in 22 games this campaign. Kane had gone goalless in six appearances after he scored a pair against Columbus on Nov. 25.
Dec 17 - 9:35 AM

Paul Postma skated in Jacob Trouba's place alongside Mark Stuart on Tuesday night.

"The first game you play together you want to have a lot of success," he said. "We played pretty well tonight all around. It's a great starting point for us." Postma finished with a plus-2 rating in 17:34 of ice time during a 5-1 win over Buffalo. Trouba will be sidelined until at least February with an upper-body injury.
Dec 17 - 9:27 AM

Mark Scheifele was a force against the Sabres on Tuesday as he recorded two goals and an assist in a 5-1 victory.

Though he suffered through a difficult stretch earlier in the season, Scheifele has picked it up again with a pair of three-point efforts in his last three games. Michael Frolik, Evander Kane and Chris Thorburn also tallied for Winnipeg in the blowout win.
Dec 17 - 1:21 AM

Ondrej Pavelec had an easy time on Tuesday as he blocked 27 of 28 shots en route to a 5-1 victory over the Sabres.

With a much-improved supporting cast around him, Pavelec is experiencing his best NHL campaign to-date, but continues to fend off the surging Michael Hutchinson. His 10-8-4 record is complemented by a 2.26 GAA and a .916 save percentage.
Dec 17 - 1:18 AM

Grant Clitsome will indeed return to the Jets' lineup Tuesday night against the Sabres.

Clitsome's been out since November 28th with an unspecified injury, and he will pair with Adam Pardy on Winnipeg's third unit. Paul Postma will go with Mark Stuart on the second unit, while Dustin Byfuglien will skate with Ben Chiarot on their first unit. Only Byfuglien and Stuart own any fantasy value in the group.

Ondrej Pavelec will be between the pipes Tuesday night in Buffalo.

The Jets come in amid a three-way tie in the West for the Wild Card slots with LA and Calgary. What gives Winnipeg the edge is that LA and Calgary are also two points behind San Jose and Vancouver in the Pacific division. Whereas Winnipeg owns a three-point lead over Minnesota in the Central.
Dec 16 - 7:49 PM

Jacob Trouba has sustained a major upper-body injury.

Trouba is expected to be out of the Jets' lineup until February. That's a big blow for the Jets as he's been second on the team with an average of 23:33 minutes of ice time per game. He also has four goals and 12 points in 31 contests. With Trouba out, the Jets might decide to continue to play Dustin Byfuglien as a defenseman for the foreseeable future.
Dec 16 - 12:37 PM

Grant Clitsome was taken off injured reserve over the weekend.

"I feel great," said Clitsome, who skated with Adam Pardy on Monday. "I had the chance to get quite a few practices in, a few skates on the road there and a couple days off to get some rest. I feel a lot better. My conditioning feels good. I haven't been off too, too long." He's not sure if he'll play Tuesday night, but he's hoping to get back into the lineup soon. Clitsome has been sidelined since Nov. 28 due to an undisclosed ailment.
