Lowry (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, retroactive to Oct. 12. The retroactive placement makes Lowry eligible to come off IR for Friday's matchup with Minnesota, though it remains to be seen if he'll be ready to go for that contest. Brendan Lemieux was recalled from AHL Manitoba in a corresponding move.
Lowry (upper body) will sit out Tuesday's matchup with Columbus, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports. Lowry will miss his second consecutive outing with this upper-body ailment. In his first four games of the season, the winger has been held off the scoresheet, despite averaging 16:26 of ice time, which includes 2:41 with the man advantage. Given the bevy of injuries the Jets are dealing with, don't be surprised to see the team recall a player from the minors, with Jack Roslovic or Brendan Lemieux the leading candidates.
Lowry is dealing with an upper-body injury that will prevent him from playing in Saturday's home tilt against the Hurricanes, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. The industrious flanker has had a rough go of it to start the new campaign. He hasn't factored into any scoring plays and has misfired on nine shot attempts through four games. This injury won't help his cause in the fantasy realm, but fortunately he's labeled day-to-day and the ailment doesn't appear to be serious.
Lowry netted the game-winning goal on the power play Sunday against the Canucks. It was the 14th tally of the season for Lowry, who has been a decent third-line contributor this year. The 23-year-old has put up a career-high 26 points and further aided owners with 50 PIM. Lowry's valuable in deep leagues as he plays on the power play, but don't expect significant offensive production given his bottom-six role and lack of scoring touch.
Lowry scored both Winnipeg goals in a 5-2 loss to Colorado on Saturday. One of the goals came on the power play. The points snapped a 12-game point dought and a 21-game goal slump. Lowry's biggest fantasy category is hits -- he has 135 in 54 games. Great day, Adam, but it's not enough to whet our fantasy whistle.
