Ehlers was playing through a broken foot in the playoffs, and won't play in the upcoming IIHF World Championship, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The injury stemmed from a play in which Ehlers blocked a shot from the Blues' Colton Parayko in Game 5. The 23-year-old experienced his lowest career point total in his fourth full season, racking up just 37 points in 62 games. Ehlers will likely use the offseason to train and get healthy, before he enters 2019-20 on the second year of his contract extension.
Ehlers (lower body) was on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 6 clash with St. Louis, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Ehlers was injured in Game 5 on Thursday when he blocked a shot by the Blues' Colton Parayko, but appears to be ready to go. The winger will slot into his usual second-line role with Patrik Laine, which bolsters his fantasy value.
Ehlers (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 6 matchup with St. Louis, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun. Ehlers didn't skate Friday and is not slated to Saturday, but coach Paul Maurice indicated that he is not expecting to make any lineup changes for Game 6. The winger is still looking for his first postseason point, despite having put 16 shots on goal in the last five contests. If Ehlers were to miss Saturday's clash with the Blues, it would likely be Par Lindholm who would slot into the lineup.
Ehlers (lower body) had to be helped off the ice and into the locker room after blocking a shot late in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 Game 5 loss to the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Ehlers suffered what appeared to be a lower-body injury when he blocked a howitzer from St. Louis' Colton Parayko with less than a minute left in regulation. The Jets have yet to release any details regarding the 23-year-old winger's condition, but they'll certainly hope to have him available for a must-win Game 6 on Saturday after dropping Game 5 at home in dramatic fashion.
Ehlers picked up an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Kings. Ehlers has six points in nine games in March, but three of them came in an 8-1 win over the Hurricanes on March 8. For the year, the Danish winger has 34 points in 52 games in a campaign shortened by injury. He is virtually guaranteed to miss the 60-point plateau for the first time since his rookie year in 2015-16, when he gathered 38 points in 72 games.
