Peluso made a notable return to the lineup Monday against the St. Louis, dishing out an assist and three hits while finishing with a plus-2 rating. Peluso was a healthy scratch for Winnipeg's prior three games, each of which the Jets lost by a combined score of 18-6. Peluso earned his assist by winning both the race to the puck in the St. Louis corner and the ensuing battle with Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, then leaving the puck in an area for Mathieu Perreault to gather it and feed Bryan Little in the slot. After putting in a spirited performance for a team that has lost six straight (0-5-1), expect Peluso to remain in the Jets lineup for the time being.
