Melchiori was sent back down to the minors Wednesday.

Melchiori did not suit up for the Jets during this call-up and will likely spend the majority of the season with AHL Manitoba, barring injuries on the blue line. The move to create space on the 23-man roster could mean Mathieu Perreault (undisclosed) is nearing a return and might be activated off IR in the near future.
