Cormier was sent to AHL Manitoba on Wednesday. The 25-year-old has struggled in the AHL this season, but was called up to the NHL last week anyway. Cormier was a healthy scratch on Tuesday and was sent down to the minors Wednesday. In 34 AHL games, he has 12 points while sporting an ugly minus-14.
Cormier was recalled by the Jets on Sunday. Cormier will join the Jets for the second time this season, and the 25-year-old has tallied five total points over 51 career NHL games. The center has 12 points (six goals, six assists) and 30 penalty minutes for AHL Manitoba this season, and was one of to forwards recalled to replace Adam Lowry and Drew Stafford on the roster. Either he or JC Lipon (the other forward recalled Sunday) will likely draw into Monday's lineup against the Avalanche.
Cormier was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Monday. Cormier was recalled to the parent club Wednesday, but skated just 3:53 worth of ice time in that span. He has two points through nine AHL games thus far and will likely be considered for another call up if Winnipeg finds themselves in need of help up the middle again.
The Jets have recalled Cormier from AHL Manitoba. An original second-round draftee of the Devils in 2008, Cormier collected two points and six PIMs in nine games with the Moose. He received the call-up with the Jets placing Andrew Copp (upper body) on injured reserve.
Patrice Cormier re-signed Thursday with the Jets on a one-year, two-way contract, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
