Kyle Connor will skate alongside Patrik Laine and Bryan Little on Tuesday night.

"They're both really great players," Connor said. "I think I can bring some speed to the table and I think our play-making ability, I think we can all move the puck around and have the ability to finish. It's going to be exciting and I'm looking forward to it." He will make his season debut after he was called up from the minors on Monday. Connor recorded three goals and two assists in four games for the Manitoba Moose before his promotion.

Nikolaj Ehlers captured the first star of the week for the period ending Oct. 15.

Ehlers produced five goals and two assists in three contests. He scored a pair of game winners and became just the third player in Jets/Thrashers history to post a natural hat trick. Ehlers didn't have a point in his first two appearances prior to last week's breakout.

Steve Mason will start Tuesday night against Columbus.

Mason has a 0-2-0 record with a 6.53 goals-against average and an .831 save percentage in his previous two starts this campaign. Connor Hellebuyck has played well in three straight wins between the pipes for the Jets, but Mason was expected to get another opportunity.

Dmitry Kulikov (lower body) may be able to return to action in less than two weeks.

Coach Paul Maurice initially thought that Kulikov would be sidelined for a couple of weeks, but now it's thought that he could be out for considerably less than that. Kulikov missed most of the 2016-17 campaign due to injury, so this is good news for him and the Jets.
Oct 16 - 2:52 PM

Mathieu Perreault (lower body) is projected to miss four weeks.

Perreault was placed on injured reserve after he was hurt in Saturday's match against Carolina.

Dmitry Kulikov (lower body) didn't skate Monday.

Kulikov was injured in Saturday's match against Carolina. It doesn't seem like he will be ready to play Tuesday when Columbus visits. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Oct 16 - 1:16 PM

Kyle Connor has been called up by Winnipeg.

Connor has racked up three goals and five points in four games with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL this campaign. He posted five points in 20 appearances with the Jets in 2016-17.
Oct 16 - 12:06 PM

Mathieu Perreault has been placed on injured reserve.

Perreault sustained a lower-body injury in Saturday's game against Carolina. He has one goal and two helpers in five matches this year.
Oct 16 - 12:03 PM

Steve Mason was on bench for a third straight game on Saturday, but he could return to the crease soon.

"We'll get Steve some practice time and look at him for Columbus," said coach Paul Maurice, referring to Tuesday's game. The Jets stuck with Connor Hellebuyck because he played well in two straight wins and because of their schedule.
Oct 15 - 4:59 PM

Adam Lowry didn't play Saturday due to an upper-body injury.

Lowry was listed as a scratch for the contest and now we know why. Joel Armia, who was a healthy scratch for Winnipeg's previous two contests, dressed against Carolina instead.
Oct 15 - 4:54 PM

Connor Hellebuyck allowed one goal in a 2-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

Hellebuyck won his second game of the season in his third straight start. Didn't have to make 37 saves like he did Monday, but Hellebuyck got the job done against the Hurricanes.

Nikolaj Ehlers scored the game-winning goal for the Winnipeg Jets in a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Saturday night.

Ehlers's game-winner came in the second period of Saturday night's contest. He's still got that scoring bug from Monday night where he scored a natural hat-trick against the Edmonton Oilers.

Adam Lowry will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against Carolina.

Lowry has suited up in four games this season and he's yet to record a point. Ben Chiarot and Tucker Poolman will also watch the game from the press box. None of these three players will have fantasy value.
Oct 14 - 6:59 PM

Dustin Byfuglien is ready to return to game action Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Byfuglien has missed the last two games due to a lower-body injury. He has one point in two games this season and should be started in every fantasy format.
Oct 14 - 12:38 PM

Connor Hellebuyck is likely to start Saturday against Carolina.

It was initially thought that Steve Mason would get the nod after he was in the starter's crease at the morning skate, but Hellebuyck was the first goalie off the ice and Mason stayed out late for extra work with the team's scratches. It seems like Hellebuyck will make his third straight start.
