Now that the minor injury is behind him, Stuart is expected to join Jacob Trouba on the Jets' third pairing, giving the team its optimal arrangement on the blue line.

    News: Mark Stuart (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday against the Blue Jackets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
    Analysis: Mark Stuart's injury isn't believed to be significant, but with the Jets readying for a prolonged break after Wednesday's game and Jacob Trouba (lower body) cleared to return to the lineup, the veteran blueliner will be given the night off. Expect Stuart to be ready to go for the Jets' first game out of the All-Star break Jan. 27, when he'll likely join Trouba on the team's third defensive pair.
  • Jets' Stuart A 'Maybe' For Wednesday

    News: Mark Stuart missed Tuesday's practice for what coach Paul Maurice described as "maintenance," AM 680 CJOB Sports reports. However, the blueliner is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets, according to Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun.
    Analysis: It sounds like Mark Stuart's availability will hinge on Jacob Trouba's own health, as he's nearing a return from a lengthy absence due to a foot injury. If the team determines Wednesday morning that Trouba is fit to play, Stuart will likely bow out of the lineup for a game, which should provide him with enough time to recuperate from whatever is ailing him.
  • Jets' Stuart (Lower Body) Will Play Saturday

    News: Coach Paul Maurice confirmed Mark Stuart (lower body) would be activated from injured reserve and return to the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
    Analysis: Wow. Initially expected to be sidelined through February with the injury, Mark Stuart was able to beat his recovery timetable by a full three weeks. He'll be one of three Jets skaters to return from long-term injuries Saturday, as Evander Kane (lower body) and Toby Enstrom (lower body) will also rejoin the lineup. Look for Stuart to be plugged in on the Jets' third pairing with Jay Harrison, where he'll make up for his lack of offensive ability with a bounty of hits and blocks.
  • Jets' Stuart (Lower Body) Could Be Back

    News: Mark Stuart (lower body) skated as part of a regular defensive pairing at the Jets' morning skate and could be back in the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Shane Hnidy of TSN reports.
    Analysis: Mark Stuart was projected to be out until February and only resumed skating a few days ago, so it would qualify as a major surprise if he ends up returning to action Saturday. The team continues to list him on injured reserve for now, and even if he ends up sitting Saturday, at the very least, it's clear he's further along in his recovery than anticipated.
