Josh Morrissey (upper body) returned to action following a two-game absence Thursday against Minnesota, so the Jets are no longer in need of Niku's services as a depth defenseman. The 23-year-old Finn appeared in one game during his brief stay with the big club, going scoreless while logging one shot on goal in 17:01 of ice time.
