Armia was recalled from AHL Manitoba on Monday, Patrick Williams of NHL.com reports. Armia has posted a solid start to the 2015-16 season with AHL Manitoba, accumulating seven points (three goals, four assists) in 15 games thus far. The 2013 first-round pick hasn't exactly lived up to his potential to this point, but could get a chance to draw into an NHL lineup for just the second time should he get a chance when he's with the Jets. His first chance would come Monday against the Avalanche, but it seems more likely he'll just serve as an extra forward at this point.
