Halischuk (illness) will actually play in Sunday's game against the Ducks, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. An earlier report indicated he would likely be replaced in Sunday's lineup due to an illness following the emergency recall of Chase De Leo, but it will actually Marko Dano (undisclosed) who will miss the contest. Still, the winger hasn't tallied a point in 22 games this season and averages just 8:46 of ice time, so he shouldn't be in fantasy consideration.
Halischuk is dealing with an illness that could cost him Sunday's game against the Ducks, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Even when healthy, Halischuk provides little to get excited about in fantasy. Assuming he skips out Sunday, the Jets have recalled Chase De Leo on emergency conditions to take his place. Expect another update on his status when he does return to the lineup.
Halischuk was called up from AHL Manitoba on Thursday. Halischuk was summoned to the parent club in the wake of news that Bryan Little (head) is out for the season. It'll be interesting to see how long the recall lasts for Halischuk, as he's 27 years old and has yet to earn a full-time role with the Jets. At any rate, he's an attractive call-up based on his ability to play on either the left or right wing.
Halischuck was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Tuesday. Halischuck played 13 games with the Jets since being called up Dec. 17 and did not record a point. The 27-year-old winger was likely sent to Manitoba to make room on the roster for forwards Adam Lowry and Mathieu Perreault who were both activated from the injured reserve list Tuesday. It is unclear when or if Halischuk will be called back up again.
Halischuk will be waived by the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets host the Stars on Tuesday and need room on the roster with Adam Lowry (upper body) and Mathieu Perrault (lower body) returning to action. Halischuk is the odd man out of that equation as he's failed to nail down more than a part-time role since joining the league in 2008-09.
