Toninato was recalled by the Jets on Thursday. Toninato is expected to skate on Winnipeg's fourth line during Thursday's game against Anaheim. The 27-year-old forward has picked up one assist through two games with AHL Manitoba this year.
Toninato (undisclosed) participated in practice Thursday, Murat Ares of The Athletic reports. Toninato missed five of the last six games for the Jets during their playoff run, although it's unclear if he was a healthy scratch or not. Regardless, he's good to go for training camp, where he'll compete for bottom-six minutes.
Toninato (undisclosed) inked a two-year, $1.5 million contract with Winnipeg on Tuesday. Toninato's deal starts as a two-way pact for the upcoming campaign before switching to a one-way contract for 2022-23. Back in 2019-20, the 27-year-old winger logged 46 games for the Panthers but was limited to a meager two appearances with Winnipeg this season. Even if the Duluth, Minnesota native can secure regular NHL minutes, it will likely be in a bottom-six role, making him a mid-range fantasy option at best.
Toninato (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's Game 4 matchup with the Canadiens, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Toninato will miss his third straight game and has suited up for just one of the last six contests. He has one goal while averaging 7:48 of ice time in three playoff appearances. He'll be questionable for Game 5 on Wednesday if the Jets avoid elimination in Game 4.
Toninato (undisclosed) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's Game 3 against the Canadiens, J-F Chaumont of Journal de Montreal reports. It's unclear if Toninato's dealing with an injury or is a healthy scratch. He's suited up for three of a possible seven games this postseason and last played in the series opener against Montreal, logging 5:33 of ice time in a fourth-line role.
