Jets' Nicolas Petan: Retroactively placed on IR
Petan (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, retroactive to Nov. 27.
Petan's change in status rules him out for the Jets' next three outings, with Dec. 4 against Chicago his first chance to return to action. Prior to getting hurt, the center was stuck in a six-game goalless streak during which he managed a mere two helpers. Offensive struggles aside, the youngster has seen significant time on the power play, and that combined with his outstanding pedigree (second-round pick, two-time 100-point man in juniors) means there'll be some fantasy intrigue here when he returns.
