T.J. Galiardi has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.

Galiardi was sent to the minors mere hours ago, but Matt Halischuk (undisclosed) has since been placed on the injured reserve list, so the Jets require Galiardi's services once more. Galiardi has a goal in 26 games in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 4:42 PM

Matt Halischuk has been placed on the injured reserve list with an undisclosed injury.

The move is presumably retroactive to Thursday, which means that whatever's bothering Halischuk will sideline him for at least three games. He has two goals and seven points in 38 contests in 2014-15. T.J. Galiardi, who was demoted earlier in the day, has been asked to turn around and rejoin the Jets.
Jan 30 - 4:41 PM

T.J. Galiardi has successfully cleared waivers.

Galiardi was sent to the minors as a result. He has a goal in 26 games this season.
Jan 30 - 12:58 PM

Michael Hutchinson suffered a rare loss on Thursday night, snapping his four game winning streak in a 5-2 defeat to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Hutchinson allowed four goals on 31 shots but made a few highlight reel saves before the Flyers put it out of reach. The rookie is 14-5-2 this season with a .932 save percentage and 2.00 goals against average.
Jan 29 - 11:56 PM

Mathieu Perreault scored two first period goals for the Jets, but the Flyers had a lot more players chipping in on offense in a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.

Perreault now has 17 goals on the season and 31 points so far in 47 games. He needs one more to match last year's total of 18, which is his career-high. The 27-year-old has 25 points in his past 23 games.
Jan 29 - 11:25 PM

Jay Harrison, T.J. Galiardi, Paul Postma and Adam Pardy are healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the Flyers.

Harrison was acquired in a trade with Carolina earlier this season. He's played some important minutes for the Jets, but there will be less playing time for him as Winnipeg continues to get healthy. None of these players have any fantasy value going forward.

T.J. Galiardi has been placed on waivers.

He has one goal and 25 shots in 26 games with the Jets this season. Galiardi won't have any fantasy value even if he gets claimed by another team.
Jan 29 - 5:20 PM

Michael Hutchinson will be between the pipes against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.

Hutchinson has won four consecutive starts, and he has just two losses in his last 10 decisions. The 24-year-old has been a pleasant surprise this season, but his fantasy upside is limited because he and Ondrej Pavelec continue to split starts. Hutchinson has a 14-4-2 record with a 1.90 goals-against-average and a .935 save percentage.
Jan 29 - 5:04 PM

Mark Stuart (lower body) has been activated by the Jets and he'll return Thursday.

He will be paired with Jacob Trouba, as Winnipeg is finally healthy again on the back end. "It's good to finally get a look at that group all together," said coach Paul Maurice. "It's the first time all year that this group of D will play together as a unit." The Jets have nine healthy defensemen on the roster right now. Jay Harrison is expected to sit in the press box along with Adam Pardy and Paul Postma.

Ben Chiarot was praised by coach Paul Maurice for his improvements during his time with the Jets.

He's been a steady defense partner for Dustin Byfuglien and it doesn't look like he's going anywhere. "Guys start thinking they've got to do more and different and all I said was play that game for the rest of your career and you'll never have to play another game in the American Hockey League," Maurice said. "That sounds nice and simple, but the consistency in playing that game is the real challenge."
Jan 29 - 10:01 AM

Michael Hutchinson probably deserves to see the majority of Winnipeg's starts for the rest of the season, but that may not happen if coach Paul Maurice continues to rotate in Ondrej Pavelec.

Hutchinson has posted an 8-2 record in his last 10 starts with a save percentage of .934, while Pavelec has posted an .898 save percentage to go with a mark of 3-3-4. It hasn't been confirmed yet, but it's probable that Hutchinson gets the nod after Pavelec allowed four goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Jan 29 - 9:45 AM

Winnipeg moved Mark Stuart to injured reserve in order to activate Mathieu Perreault for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.

Stuart is dealing with a lower-body issue, but he may be back in the lineup as early as Thursday night.
Jan 28 - 8:26 AM

Chris Thorburn was promoted to a line with Adam Lowry and Evander Kane on Tuesday night.

He made the most of it with a goal and an assist in Winnipeg's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh. The trio combined for seven points in the match. "Every time you get points with new guys, there's a little bit of excitement," said Thorburn. "We made some good plays out there, some simple plays using our size and we got rewarded for it." He has seven points this season, with three goals and one assist coming in his last four matches.
Jan 28 - 8:22 AM

Evander Kane registered three assists for the Jets on Tuesday, but the team dropped a 5-3 decision to Pittsburgh in their first game back from the All-Star break.

Kane had a part in all of Winnipeg's goals on the night and has now picked up nine points in his last 10 games. As always, he's been a productive player when healthy this year, but has missed significant time due to injury. Adam Lowry and Chris Thorburn each picked up a goal and an assist in the loss while Jacob Trouba also chipped in with a tally.
Jan 27 - 9:56 PM

Ondrej Pavelec allowed four goals on 29 shots Tuesday as the Jets were beaten by Pittsburgh by a score of 5-3.

Pavelec has done nothing of late to bridge the gap between himself and Michael Hutchinson and stands to watch a number of games from the bench in the near future. His record falls to 12-11-6 on the year while his GAA rises to 2.52 and his save percentage drops to .911.
