Appleton is dealing with a shoulder problem that was set to sideline him for 2-3 weeks, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. While Appleton appeared in a career-high 46 games this season, he didn't offer much offensively with just eight points while averaging 11:10 of ice time. The Wisconsin native should see more games next year as a full-time NHL player but he'll need to produce more points if he wants to challenge for a top-six role.
Appleton (undisclosed) is not on the ice for pregame warmups Thursday ahead of Game 4 against Calgary and will not play, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports. Appleton has missed Games 2 and 3 with the issue and hasn't resumed skating in practice, so this absence doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Jets have their work cut out for them Thursday, as they try to stave off elimination without Appleton and star forwards Mark Scheifele (leg) and Patrik Laine (wrist).
Appleton (undisclosed) was not in attendance for Thursday's game-day skate. Appleton missed the club's previous two games due to his undisclosed injury, which has stretched a Jets squad that has been without Patrik Laine (wrist) and Mark Scheifele (leg). If Appleton remains sidelined Thursday, it will likely mean Jansen Harkins retains his spot in the lineup.
Appleton (undisclosed) will miss Tuesday's Game 3 matchup against the Flames, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports. Tuesday will be the second consecutive missed game for Appleton. With Mark Scheifele (leg) and Patrik Laine (wrist) also set to miss Tuesday's clash, the team will continue to operate with Mathieu Perreault in the lineup.
Appleton (undisclosed) will miss Monday's Game 2 matchup with Calgary, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

With Mark Scheifele (leg) and Patrik Laine (wrist) also unavailable, Andrew Copp is set to join the top line while Mathieu Perreault gets a bumped to the second unit.
