Connor Hellebuyck pitched a perfect performance against the Canucks on Sunday night.

Hellebuyck stopped all 29 shots that came his way, and the Jets needed every one of those saves in the 1-0 victory. The 24-year-old continues to show he's the team's goalie of the future. He's 25-6-6 this season with a 2.29 goals against average and .926 save percentage.

Patrik Laine scored the only goal in Sunday night's 1-0 victory over Winnipeg Jets.

The sniper's 21st goal of the season came in the first period and proved to be the winner. Laine now has 38 points in 48 games this season, a bit behind the pace he set in his rookie season.

The loss breaks his two-game losing streak but Hellebuyck has now gone 6-2-1 in his last nine games in goal. With Steve Mason placed on injured reserve with a concussion, Hellebuyck will get all the starts for the Jets. Hellebuyck's record improves to 24-6-6 with a 2.35 goals against average and .924 save percentage.

Mathieu Perreault scored a goal in a 2-1 shootout win over the Calgary Flames.

Bryan Little made a nice play to receive the pass from Nikolaj Ehlers and fire away a backhand that Matieu Perreault redirected in behind Mike Smith. Perreault is up to 14 goals and 27 points in 35 games this season.
Jan 20 - 6:15 PM

The Winnipeg Jets are expected to scratch defenseman Ben Chiarot against the Calgary Flames this afternoon.

Chiarot has four points in 24 games this season and will be scratched for the fifth straight game. Adam Lowry (upper body), Mark Scheifele (upper body), Shawn Matthias (upper body) and Steve Mason (concussion) will miss the game due to their respective injuries.
Jan 20 - 2:55 PM

The Winnipeg Jets have confirmed that Connor Hellebuyck will be in goal this afternoon against the Calgary Flames.

With Steve Mason placed on injured reserve, expect to see a lot of Hellebuyck for the next stretch of games. It'll be Hellebuyck's first start since the bye week and he will be looking to break his two-game slide today with a win over the Flames. His record is still a phenomenal 23-6-6 with three shutouts, a 2.40 goals-against, and a .922 save percentage.
Jan 20 - 1:17 PM

Jack Roslovic is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Calgary Flames.

With Shawn Matthias and Adam Lowry out with upper-body injuries, the Jets won't carry any extra forwards. Roslovic will skate on the fourth line with Matt Hendricks and Marko Dano. The 20-year-old was Winnipeg's first-round pick in 2015. He has no points in four NHL games this season.
Jan 20 - 10:34 AM

Shawn Matthias (upper body) continues to be day-to-day.

Matthias missed Winnipeg's last game against Chicago because of the injury. It's unclear how long he'll be out at this point, but it doesn't sound like it will cost him an extended period of time. Matthias has one goal and two assists in 25 games this season.
Jan 20 - 10:31 AM

Adam Lowry (upper body) is expected to miss a few more games.

Lowry has been out of the lineup for each of the last four games. He has eight goals and 14 points in 33 games this season.
Jan 20 - 10:28 AM

Michael Hutchinson isn't happy about spending so much time in the minors this season.

Hutchinson is back up with the Jets now because Steve Mason (concussion) is on the injured list. "If you get demoted in your job you’re going to be pissed off," Hutchinson said. "Being sent down is getting demoted. There’s no way of sugar-coating it. It sucks. I was pissed off. There’s still days when you come to the rink and you’re still pissed off that you’re down there." Hutchinson has yet to play an NHL game this season, but that should change in the near future.
Jan 20 - 10:26 AM

Steve Mason (concussion) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Mason hasn't played since Jan. 9 so he can probably be activated at any time. That being said, he could be sidelined for a significant period of time given that this is his second concussion of the season.
Jan 19 - 5:08 PM

Brandon Tanev (lower body) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Tanev took part in Friday's practice and is expected to make his return on Saturday. Look for him to play on a line with Andrew Copp and Joel Armia.
