    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Signs five-year extension

    Byfuglien signed a five-year contract extension with the Jets on Monday that will net him $7.6 million on average annually. The 30-year-old Byfuglien remains one of the premier offensive blueliners in the league, posting 32 points (15 goals, 17 assists) on the campaign. The former eighth-round pick has greatly exceeded expectations from when he was drafted in 2003, and the perennial All-Star will now stay in Winnipeg late into his career. With the contract now behind him, Byfuglien can set his focuses on the success of the team, and doesn't have to worry about playing for a new contract after the season.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Stays hot in loss Friday

    Byfuglien dished out two helpers and fired four shots on goal in Friday's 5-3 loss to Carolina. He also received four PIM and received a team-high 2:27 of power-play ice time. The big man is officially hot, as he's now recorded seven points as part of a four-game point streak -- four of which have been goals. Byfuglien is up to 32 points in 51 games with 162 shots on goal and 72 PIM, making him one of the more valuable fantasy blueliners in hockey, especially in leagues where he's assigned forward eligibility.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Scores goal in loss

    Byfuglien rifled the puck into the back of the net against Dallas on Tuesday. Byfuglien extended his goal streak to three games with Tuesday's marker. Over his last seven contests, the defenseman has averaged a point a game, including two multi-point showings. During that stretch, the 30-year-old has not been hesitant to fire the puck, as he's peppered opposing netminders with 24 shots on net.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Impressive outing Tuesday

    Byfuglien tallied two goals -- one shorthanded -- and picked up an assist and two penalty minutes in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes. After breaking a three-game pointless drought Saturday, Byfuglien delivered yet again with a three-point performance and was also a plus-3. The Minnesota native now has five goals in his last six games and is on pace for his third straight 40-point season.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Nets Jets' only goal

    Byfuglien (undisclosed) scored the Jets' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday night. It was his 12th goal. Twelve goals are enough to sit him squarely in fourth spot for goal scoring from the blue line. Byfuglien is a free agent at season's end and there has been plenty of speculation about where he'll be after the trade deadline. But CBC's Hockey Night in Canada reported Saturday night the Jets are making a big push to re-sign him. Good news for Winnipeg fans if it comes to pass.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Suiting up Friday

    Byfuglien (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Friday's tilt in Minnesota, Shane Hnidy of TSN reports. Big Buff left Thursday's game in Nashville after an awkward collision in the neutral zone, and it looked as though he had his leg twisted up. Byfuglien is one of the Jets' most important players, and the news that he won't miss any games with this injury sounds even better than usual after he snapped a five-game pointless streak by scoring two goals Thursday. Look for Byfuglien to keep rolling if he's fully healthy.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Leaves with undisclosed injury

    Byfuglien exited Thursday's game against the Predators with an undisclosed injury and did not return. Coach Paul Maurice indicated after the game that Byfuglien is "going to make the trip to Minnesota," and said he will re-evaluated Friday. With the short turnaround before Friday's game against the Wild, it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up missing, but more on his availability should come at some point Friday.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Commits brutal turnover in loss to Sharks

    Byfuglien went minus-2 with just one shot on goal and three giveaways -- including one that led to a shorthanded goal -- in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to San Jose. The neutral-zone turnover that Byfuglien committed was particularly brutal -- an attempted behind-the-back pass that went straight to the Sharks' Chris Tierney, who took it the other way and put it in the net. That's now five straight games without a point for Big Buff, and he's minus-5 in that span. He's been stuck on nine goals since Dec. 19, making Tuesday his 11th consecutive game without finding twine. As trade rumors swirl around him, it seems very much like the powerful blueliner's time in Winnipeg is grinding slowly to an end.

    Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Enduring offensive slump

    Byfuglien has been held off the scoresheet in four of his last five contests. While Byfuglien has been enduring a tough stretch, the Jets have struggled as well. When Byfuglien was pointless during this five-game period, Winnipeg lost each of those four games, showing just how much the American blueliner is relied on for the team to have success. Byfuglien is capable of kicking it into gear at any time, though, so it would be wise to continue to start him in every fantasy format despite his recent struggles.

    Byfuglien netted a power-play goal and picked up two assists in Thursday's win over Columbus.

The 30-year-old now has 20 points (eight goals) in 29 games and has helped fantasy goers with a whopping 47 PIM and a solid plus-7 rating. Big Buff is turning on the jets, so make sure he's in your lineup every game.
