Connor Hellebuyck has been sent to the minors.

The Jets needed to make a roster spot available in order to activate Ondrej Pavelec. We'll see if Hellebuyck rejoins the team in short order or if this is just a temporary measure. Hellebuyck certainly impressed during Pavelec's absence as he posted a 2.34 GAA and .918 save percentage in 26 contests. At the same time, Hellebuyck hasn't been quite as good lately and if the Jets intend to play Pavelec frequently for the remainder of the season, then Hellebuyck might be better served in the AHL where he can play consistently and continue to hone his game.

Ondrej Pavelec (knee) has been taken off of the injured reserve list.

The Jets also reassigned Connor Hellebuyck, who had been running away with the starting job during Pavelec's absence. Pavelec hasn't played since Nov. 21, but when he was healthy he was leaving plenty to be desired with his 2.82 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 games. We'll see if he steps up now in the final months of the campaign.

Blake Wheeler recorded two assists and seven penalty minutes in Thursday's 6-2 loss to Boston.

He was assessed a roughing penalty in the second period and shortly after that serving that infraction he dropped the gloves with Patrice Bergeron. Wheeler also helped set up goals by linemates Bryan Little and Nikolaj Ehlers in the defeat. He has 37 assists and 51 points in 54 games this year.

Drew Stafford was back in the lineup from his one-game suspension on Thursday night.

He had three shots and a minus-2 rating in 16:13 of ice time in a 6-2 loss to Boston. Stafford received a one-game ban for a high-sticking incident against Colorado defenseman Nick Holden.
Feb 12 - 3:10 AM

Michael Hutchinson allowed two goals on 27 shots in a relief appearance for the Jets on Thursday night.

Hutchinson was called into the game in the second period with the Jets trailing Boston 3-2. The Bruins ended up winning 6-2.
Feb 11 - 11:36 PM

Connor Hellebuyck was pulled after the first period of 6-2 loss to Boston on Thursday night.

Hellebuyck allowed three goals on eight shots in 20 minutes of work. He falls to 13-11-1 this season.
Feb 11 - 11:33 PM

Bryan Little had a hand in both of Winnipeg's goals during a 6-2 loss to Boston on Thursday night.

Little's goal and assist brought him to 41 points in 53 games this season. He has goals in two straight games.
Feb 11 - 11:24 PM

Adam Pardy will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins.

He'll be joined in the press box by Anthony Peluso and Paul Postma. Neither of these three players will have any fantasy value going forward.
Feb 11 - 8:05 PM

Connor Hellebuyck will be the Jets' starter on Thursday.

Hellebuyck saved 21 of 22 shots in a 2-1 shootout win vs. St. Louis on Tuesday. He will enter Thursday's contest with a 2.25 GAA and .921 save percentage in 25 games.
Feb 11 - 12:03 PM

Andrew Ladd still isn't sure what his future holds with the trade deadline around the corner.

"I honestly don't know, I haven't heard much from their side in terms of what that does or how it impacts," said Ladd after Dustin Byfuglien received his contract extension. "I'm sure we will soon, but I honestly don't know." He doesn't like the uncertainty, but he understands that he isn't only player going through a situation like this and he won't be the last either. Ladd has been skating on the third line and could be moved prior to the deadline.
Feb 10 - 4:20 PM

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 21 of 22 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues.

Hellebuyck has struggled of late, but he was sharp in this one. The 22-year-old is 2-1-0 in his last four games. With Ondrej Pavelec nearing a return, it will be interesting to see what the Jets do with their goaltending situation. Hellebuyck has a 13-10-1 record and a 2.25 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season.
Feb 10 - 12:00 AM

Bryan Little scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues.

Little opened the scoring 15 seconds into the second period. Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom picked up the assists on Winnipeg's only goal in regulation. Little has 16 goals and 39 points in 53 games this season. Mark Scheifele scored the game-winning goal in the shootout.
Feb 9 - 11:52 PM

Anthony Peluso will see his first game since Jan. 26th when he skates on the Jets' fourth line Tuesday versus St. Louis.

Peluso will skate to the right of Chris Thorburn and Andrew Copp, for what could result in a ferocious fourth line. Peluso has posted 38 PIMs and 64 hits thus far in 27 games, so look for him to build on this opportunity.

Connor Hellebuyck will face the Blues on Tuesday night.

During his previous game against St. Louis, Hellebuyck surrendered four goals on just 26 shots. Considering how porous he's been lately, this might be a start to skip with the promising netminder.
Feb 9 - 6:55 PM

Alexander Burmistrov is going to play with Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele on Tuesday night.

Coach Paul Maurice wants to keep his top line, consisting of Nikolaj Ehlers, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler, together and he likes the trio of Andrew Ladd, Adam Lowry and Joel Armia, so Burmistrov is getting a chance to play on the second unit because of Drew Stafford's suspension.
