Jets' Bryan Little: Will take part in Thursday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Little (back) is listed on the game-day roster for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Wild.

Little missed the final 25 games of the 2015-16 season with a compression fracture of his vertebrae, but was evidently able to fully recover from the injury over the offseason, and will now set his sights on shaking off any remaining rust ahead of the Jets' Oct. 13 regular-season opener against the Hurricanes. The 28-year-old forward will slot into a top-six role with Winnipeg in 2016-17, and should be able to improve upon the 42 points (17 goals, 25 assists) he registered last season, barring major injury.

Jets' Bryan Little: Cleared for light contact
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Coach Paul Maurice indicated Monday that Little (back) has seen some improvement and can now take some light contact, but he won't see game action unless he's 100 percent, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Little was expected to miss the remainder of the campaign due to a compression fracture of his vertebrae, but it appears there now may be a remote chance he rejoins the lineup before all's said and done. Expect further updates as the 28-year-old forward gets deeper into his recovery.

Jets' Bryan Little: Out for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Little (head) will miss the rest of the season with a compression fracture of his vertebrae, per Jets coach Paul Maurice.

More details about Little's condition are pending, but the Jets have responded by calling up winger Matthew Halischuk from AHL Manitoba ahead of Thursday's road game against the Stars. Little finishes the 2015-16 season with 17 goals and 25 assists, albeit a minus-13 rating. He was planted on a fearsome top line and centered Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler, with the trio combining for 131 points this campaign.

Jets' Bryan Little: Out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryan Little (head) will miss Tuesday's contest against the Stars, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports.

Little will now miss his second consecutive contest after sustaining a hit to the head last week, but it sounds as though he avoided a serious injury. Per the report, coach Paul Maurice remained hopeful that the 28-year-old would be able to slot back into the lineup for the second leg of the home-and-home set with Dallas on Thursday, which would definitely be good news for the club's leading goal-scorer.

Jets' Bryan Little: May return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Coach Paul Maurice indicated Monday that Little (head) could return to the lineup Tuesday against the Stars, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports.

Little sported a non-contact jersey at Monday's practice, but will reportedly be re-evaluated on gameday for a potential return. While the Jets don't have a ton to play for at this point (last in the Central division), a return of the team's leading scorer (17 goals this season) would at least provide an offensive boost for the club and Little's fantasy owners alike.
