Lowry notched an assist, three hits and two PIM in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Flames in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. Lowry set up Andrew Copp for the first goal of the game, but that was all there was for the Jets. The 27-year-old Lowry managed a career-low 10 points in 49 contests during the regular season. Most fantasy managers won't have a need for the 27-year-old center, except in formats which count faceoffs.
Lowry (upper body) will be in the lineup versus the Coyotes on Monday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports. Lowry will be back in action following a 20-game stint on the shelf due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the center was bogged down in an 18-game goal drought during which he registered four helpers, 25 shots and 55 hits. The St. Louis native figures to slot into a third-line role alongside Andrew Copp and Jack Roslovic.
Coach Paul Maurice said Sunday that Lowry (upper body) has a "good chance" to return to the lineup for Monday's game against Arizona, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports. The 26-year-old returned to practice in a regular jersey during Thursday's session, signalling his possible return in the coming days. This is more positive news for Lowry, as he's been sidelined since Jan. 21 with the upper-body issue.
Lowry (upper body) was spotted taking part in Thursday's practice sporting a regular jersey, Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. While Lowry's full participation in practice likely serves as a sign that he's closing in on a return, Sawatzky also noted that Lowry will not be an option for Friday's contest against the Golden Knights. Considering he's been sidelined for more than a month, the coaching staff will likely look to get at least a few sessions under the belt before considering the winger for game action.
Lowry (upper body) will be sidelined for at least a month, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Lowry's absence will stretch an already thin center position for the Jets, as the team is still without Mark Letestu (illness) and Bryan Little (ear). With Lowry out of action, Gabriel Bourque figures to be the most likely replacement on the third line while Jansen Harkins slots into the lineup. Given his expected timeline, Lowry should be designated for injured reserve in the coming days.
