Blake Wheeler chipped in two assists on Sunday night to help the Jets fly by Vancouver 2-1.

Wheeler now has 14 points in 11 games this month, putting his total output at 22 goals and 64 points in 75 games this season.

Marko Dano will suit up in Sunday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Jets forward has been held out of the last two games because of an undisclosed ailment. Dano has four goals and seven assists in 37 games this season.
Mar 26 - 7:39 PM

Patrik Laine (illness) isn't expected to be in the lineup in Sunday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Laine didn't hop on the ice for the pre-game warmup, so it looks like he'll sit out tonight. The rookie has 34 goals and 61 points in 67 games this season. He's considered day-to-day for now.
Mar 26 - 7:37 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have sent Brenden Kichton to AHL Manitoba.

Kichton didn't end up playing with Winnipeg during his brief NHL stint. He has no goals and 18 assists in 54 AHL games this season.
Mar 26 - 1:34 PM

Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) will not play Sunday night against the Canucks.

He is still nursing a lower-body injury and won't be able to suit up for Sunday's contest. Consider Big Buff day-to-day.
Mar 26 - 12:55 PM

Patrick Laine is under the weather and may not play Sunday against Vancouver.

It will be a game-time decision as to whether Laine is healthy enough to suit up. Check back with us later on Sunday.
Mar 26 - 12:53 PM

Michael Hutchinson will likely play between the pipes on Sunday.

Hutchinson has played in three of the Jets' last four games. He has a 6-12-3 record, 3.06 GAA, and .900 save percentage in 25 contests this season.
Mar 26 - 12:10 PM

Dustin Byfuglien is dealing with a lower-body injury.

He was injured during Thursday's game against the Kings after he collided with Jeff Carter, and he was unable to suit up in Friday night's tilt against the Ducks. Byfuglien is considered day-to-day for now. With Winnipeg all but eliminated from playoff contention, there's no point in them rushing him back into the lineup.

Mathieu Perreault picked up an assist in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

He extended his point streak to five games in the process. Perreault helped set up Josh Morrissey's power play goal at the 6:08 mark of the second period to tie the game at one. He finished with a minus-2 rating and no shots on goal in 18:37 of ice time. Perreault has 10 goals and 26 assists in 58 games.
Mar 25 - 9:50 AM

Blake Wheeler picked up an assist in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

He registered the primary helper on Josh Morrissey's power play goal in the second period. Wheeler has now amassed eight points in his last six contests. He has 22 goals and 42 assists in 75 games.

After going over two months between starts earlier this season, Michael Hutchinson admits he has a chip on his shoulder.

The Jets goalie has used that as a source of motivation. He's started three of Winnipeg's last four games and he has two wins to show for it. "When you sit out that many games, it kind of puts a little bit of a chip on your shoulder," said Hutchinson. "It's a little bit of added motivation right there to go out and show I can play. Other than that, it's been (about) staying confident in my abilities." He has a 6-12-3 record with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.

Michael Hutchinson stopped 32 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

After a very long layoff in goal which saw Hutchinson play less than 55 minutes in two months, it is very encouraging to see him regain NHL caliber form in goal for the Jets. The Jets will most likely choose to protect Connor Helleybuyck from the Vegas expansion, leaving Hutchinson exposed. If Hutchinson can show he can still be a quality NHL starter in the final games of the season, he might just be snatched up by the Golden Knights. For now we'd stay far away from the 27-year-old netminder. His record dropped to 6-12-3 with a 3.06 goals against average and a .900 save percentage.
Mar 25 - 2:02 AM

Josh Morrissey picked up his 6th goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Morrissey tipped a Blake Wheeler shot passed Bernier and into the empty cage for his first career power play marker. He has now put together an all-around rookie campaign, picking up 20 points in 75 games this season, while averaging 19:21 of ice time. Although he isn't worth owning in fantasy pools yet, he has some offensive potential and can be someone to keep an eye on for the future.
Mar 25 - 1:48 AM

Brenden Kichton will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Kichton was recalled from the minors on Thursday, but he didn't play against the Kings last night and he won't play against the Ducks tonight. He has no fantasy value. Dustin Byfuglien, Toby Enstrom, Paul Postma, Ben Chiarot, Ondrej Pavelec, Shawn Matthias and Marko Dano are all out due to injury.
