  • Byfuglien put up two more assists in Saturday's overtime loss to the Canadiens. He also had 10 PIM. Big Buff has nine points in 11 games, but is still looking for his first goal. That's a bit of a surprise given his double-digit goal scoring ways in every one of his full NHL seasons. Byfuglien should start to find twine, but his owners need to be prepared that at 32, his goal scoring may be on the decline. It's worth monitoring.

  • Byfuglien notched a power-play assist, plus-3 rating and four PIM in Sunday's 7-1 home rout over the Penguins. Winnipeg's top two-way defenseman is still in pursuit of his first goal this season, but he's quietly amassed five assists in six games since returning from a lower-body injury. Byfuglien does a little of everything, which ensures that he gets heavy ice time on a nightly basis. This season, he's averaging close to 24 minutes per contest.

  • Byfuglien (lower body) is expected to play Saturday versus the visiting Hurricanes, as he made himself available to the media in the morning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. After missing the last two games, the bruising defenseman is set to replace Tucker Poolman for this next one. Byfuglien's 2017-18 season started with his producing an assist, two hits, three blocked shots and a minus-1 rating over the first two games against the Maple Leafs and Flames, respectively. He's an excellent two-way fantasy option who has posted 53 and 52 points with Winnipeg the past two seasons.

    Byfuglien (lower body) could return to the lineup Saturday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Byfuglien was already ruled out versus the Canucks on Thursday, but fantasy owners can take solace in the fact that he could be available sooner rather than later. The defender is the lynchpin of the Jets defense and provides the bulk of the team's blue-line scoring. In the meantime, Tucker Poolman will continue filling out the game-day lineup.

  • Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Ruled out for Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Byfuglien (lower body) won't dress for Thursday's tilt against Vancouver, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The imposing defenseman is reportedly battling a soft-tissue ailment in his lower body, and will remain day-to-day. After averaging 23:40 of time on ice during the first two regular-season games and notching an assist, Byfuglien showed once again how important he is to the Winnipeg defense, and will likely return to being a workhorse as soon as he's cleared to play. His next opportunity to play will come Saturday against Carolina.
