Grant Clitsome has recovered from his illness.

Clitsome missed four straight games, but he'll be in the Jets' lineup on Tuesday. He's projected to play alongside Zach Bogosian.
Nov 25 - 2:23 PM

Tobias Enstrom has sustained a lower-body injury.

Enstrom is regarded as day-to-day, according to coach Paul Maurice. Enstrom has a goal and nine points in 22 contests in 2014-15.

The Winnipeg Jets will start Michael Hutchinson Tuesday night.

Hutchinson might be the Jets' backup, but he certainly hasn't played like a number two goaltender. He has a remarkable 1.38 GAA and .948 save percentage in six games. Although Ondrej Pavelec has been more hit than miss this season, those that own him should hedge their bets by picking up Hutchinson if the option's available.

T.J. Galiardi has been placed on waivers by the Winnipeg Jets.

Galiardi has no points and two penalty minutes in 17 games in 2014-15. He signed a two-way contract worth $700,000 annually at the NHL level.

Jim Slater got his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

He gave the Jets a 2-1 lead at the time, but the Blues tied it before the end of the second period and then won the game in the third. Just an FYI as Slater shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.
Nov 24 - 10:10 AM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed three goals on 28 shots in Winnipeg's 4-2 loss to St. Louis.

Pavelec has now lost four consecutive decisions. The 27-year-old has lived up to his inconsistent reputation this season. He's now 7-8-2 with a 2.29 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage. If he doesn't turn his play around, he may lose starts to backup Michael Hutchinson.
Nov 23 - 8:03 PM

Bryan Little scored a goal in Winnipeg's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

The goal was Little's first in 14 games. He hadn't scored since October 26th against Colorado. The 27-year-old now has six goals and 12 points in 22 games this season. If he stays healthy, Little should score between 40-50 points for Winnipeg. The Jets don't score many goals so their forwards fantasy upside is limited. Jim Slater scored the other goal for Winnipeg.

Michael Hutchinson has played well this season and some people believe that he should be getting more starts for the Jets.

With Ondrej Pavelec struggling (he's lost or been pulled in each of his last four starts) and Michael Hutchinson playing so well, some expect the backup to get a few more games between the pipes for Winnipeg. The 24-year-old is 3-0-1 in his last four games and he has a 1.38 goals-against-average and a .948 save-percentage.

The Winnipeg Jets continue to play in tight games this season.

The Jets have played in one-goal games in 12 of their last 14 contests (if you ignore empty net goals). "Those are games we've got to learn how to play in because those are the games we're going to be in," defenseman Jacob Trouba said. "I think we knew that coming into this year, that we've got to be good in those one-goal games and come out on the right side of them." The Jets have the third-fewest goals for in the NHL and they are usually solid defensively, so their style of play results in close games.
Nov 23 - 8:59 AM

Evander Kane has just two goals in 13 games this season.

Kane and the Jets had high hopes coming into this season. The 23-year-old did miss eight games because of a knee injury but his offensive production is still nowhere close to what it should be. Kane is currently on pace to score only 11 goals, but he should get that number up fairly soon. The Jets have struggled to score goals as a team, but Kane is their best sniper. "There's lots of hockey left this season and it's just the beginning," said Kane. "I think everybody would like to be scoring more and as a team we'd like to be scoring more, so it's going to be up to the top guys such as myself to try to produce more and obviously score a lot more." He is a solid buy-low category.

Tobias Enstrom missed practice Saturday but should be good to go Sunday against the Blues.

it was just a maintenance day off for Enstrom who logs a lot minutes, 25:10 per game, to lead the Jets.
Nov 22 - 2:43 PM

Dustin Byfuglien scored his third goal of the year in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

He gave the Jets a 1-0 lead in the contest early in the second period, with assists going to linemates Evander Kane and Mathieu Perreault. Byfuglien snapped a 14-game goalless drought in the process.
Nov 21 - 7:34 AM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 27 shots, including the game winner with 4:50 left in the game, as the Jets fell 4-3 to Detroit on Thursday night.

Just when we thought Pavelec was turning a corner, he relapses and has now lost three straight, which does not include Sunday's awful outing against Minnesota where he was pulled and did not get the decision. His record now evens up at 7-7-2 and its anyone's guess as to what happens next.
Nov 20 - 11:03 PM

Mathieu Perreault had a goal and an assist in Winnipeg's loss to Detroit on Thursday night.

Perreault failed to score in his first 19 games of the season, but now has a tally in two straight games as the 26-year-old is riding some momentum. He has six points in 21 games so far.
Nov 20 - 10:57 PM

Anthony Peluso will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Detroit.

The 25-year-old has been limited to three games this season. He hasn't registered a point in 2014-15.
