Byfuglien dished out three helpers -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks. Byfuglien spread out his assists with one in each period. The veteran rearguard now has four points in three games since returning from a concussion and 21 points in 24 games this year. He'll look to continue the trend against the Oilers on Thursday.
Byfuglien (concussion) recorded a season-high 28:56 of ice time in Friday's 1-0 home loss to the Blues. Yes, this was the same guy that missed the previous four games with a concussion and required a stint on injured reserve. Byfuglien didn't do a whole lot when he was on the ice -- he committed to a hit and redirected one shot while hoisting two shots of his own -- but it's worth noting that the imposing blueliner has produced six goals and eight helpers over 22 career games against Sunday's opponent in the Flyers.
Byfuglien (concussion) was officially removed from injured reserve ahead of Friday's matchup with St. Louis. Byfuglien slots back into the lineup after missing the past four contests due to his concussion. While the towering blueliner is bogged down in a 12-game goal drought, he managed 11 helpers during that stretch -- eight of which were scored with the man advantage.
Byfuglien (concussion) will be in the lineup versus St. Louis on Friday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports. Byfuglien returns following a four-game absence due to his concussion and should find himself back of the top power-play unit. With the man advantage, the blueliner has racked up 11 helpers while averaging 3:16 of ice time. In order to activate Byfuglien from injured reserve, the Jets will need to make a corresponding roster move, which could be placing Andrew Copp (undisclosed) or Josh Morrissey (lower body) on injured reserve.
Byfuglien (concussion) is a possibility to suit up against the Blues on Friday, Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. While coach Paul Maurice wouldn't provide a more firm stance on Byfuglien's status versus St. Louis, the fact that the Minnesota native was able to take part in Thursday's practice session is a good sign he's progressing. Nelson Nogier or Cameron Schilling would be the most likely candidates to get bumped from the lineup if Byfuglien plays -- although they could both find themselves back in the minors if Josh Morrissey (lower body) is healthy as well.
