  • Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Three points in return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Byfuglien celebrated his return from an upper-body injury by scoring a goal and adding two power-play assists in Thursday's 4-1 win over Vancouver. Any concerns about Byfuglien's health were put to bed by this stellar performance. He needed just 1:07 with the extra man to produce his pair of power-play points and capped his triumphant return by lighting the lamp with 5:17 remaining. Get the elite defenseman back in your lineups immediately.

  • Byfuglien (upper body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Vancouver, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Byfuglien's return will bump Dmitry Kulikov out of the lineup, but the Minnesota native won't resume his pairing with Tyler Myers, instead suiting up alongside Ben Chiarot -- whose defensive mindset could help free up Byfuglien to jump up into the play more. The 33-year-old should also retake his spot on the top power-play unit, where he is logging over three minutes of ice time per game but has just one assist to show for it.

  • Byfuglien (upper body) took the ice for Thursday's game-day skate sporting a regular jersey, Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Byfuglien being cleared for contact could be an indication he will suit up against the Canucks on Thursday, although fantasy owners will likely want to wait for final confirmation later in the day. Prior to getting hurt, the towering blueliner managed just one assist in four games, despite averaging 24:00 of ice time, which includes 3:08 with the man advantage. If the Jets can get the offensively minded defenseman back in the lineup and scoring again, they become a very difficult team to match up against.

  • Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Out again Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Byfuglien (upper body) will not play again Tuesday against the Oilers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Byufuglien is reportedly doing better in his recovery and nearing a return to the ice, but he will sit out at least a second contest due to his upper-body issue. When healthy, the veteran should slot back into the power play and a primary blue line role, where he's averaging 24:00 of ice time over four games this season. His next opportunity to do so arrives Thursday against the Canucks.

  • Byfuglien (upper body) skated on his own Monday and plans to skate again Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Byfuglien remains day-to-day but could be an option Tuesday when the Jets host Edmonton. The rearguard has gotten off to a slow start with only one assist through four games. The injury doesn't appear to be serious and as such, owners should expect Byfuglien to return soon and start finding the scoresheet with more regularity.
