Top Nikolaj Ehlers News

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Lands on LTIR

    Ehlers (knee) was placed on long-term injured reserve Saturday.

    Ehlers has already missed one game with his knee injury and this move will force him to miss Winnipeg's next nine contests. Ehlers has averaged 17:59 of ice time -- 1:43 during the power play -- and tallied nine points over his last 10 appearances. The Jets have yet to release a timetable for the 25-year-old's recovery.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Dealing with MCL sprain

    Ehlers (knee) is considered week-to-week with an MCL sprain, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Ehlers was placed on injured reserve Thursday in a transaction to free up a roster spot. The winger was hurt Tuesday in a collision with Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov. Ehlers' week-to-week status makes it unlikely he'll be in action before next Thursday's game versus the Canucks.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Lands on IR

    Ehlers (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    This is simply a paper move as Ehlers was already ruled out for at least the next three games. He could return as early as Jan. 25 against the Panthers, though it's unclear if he'll be out longer than that.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Missing rest of road trip

    Ehlers (lower body) will return no sooner than Tuesday against Florida, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    The 25-year-old will miss at least three games with the lower-body injury, which he suffered Tuesday against Washington. Ehlers has tallied 25 points while averaging 18:35 of ice time this season and should return to his usual top-six role once healthy.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Injured in Tuesday's contest

    Ehlers (lower body) was injured Tuesday versus the Capitals and has already been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Predators, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Ehlers got the worst of a collision with Dmitry Orlov in the third period, and the former wasn't able to put much weight on his leg as he left the ice. His first chance to return is Saturday against the Bruins, but the Jets will likely update his status once his injury is evaluated further. Paul Stastny (COVID-19 protocols) could be an option to take Ehlers' place in the lineup.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Ehlers exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun.

    Ehlers missed Thursday's contest in Detroit whilst in the virus protocols. The 25-year-old has averaged 18:03 of ice -- 1:47 during the power play -- and has recorded five goals and five assists over his last 10 appearances. He will be hunting for his first power-play goal of the season against Ottawa on Saturday. Upon Ehlers' return, Cole Perfetti is likely to see a reduction in usage during the power play.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Placed in COVID-19 protocols

    Ehlers entered the league's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Ehlers has been rolling of late with three goals and five assists in his last six contests, including a pair of power-play helpers. With the Jets set to head out on a five-game road trip, that could complicate Ehlers' availability beyond the standard return to play procedures. With the 25-year-old Dane sidelined, Paul Stastny (lower body) should find himself restored to a top-six role if cleared to play.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Fills empty cage

    Ehlers scored an empty-net goal on six shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Ehlers tallied at 19:15 of the third period to secure the Jets' win from long range. The winger has scored three times and added five assists in his last five games. The Dane is up to 13 tallies, 12 helpers, 132 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 32 appearances. His impressive shot volume (4.1 per game) has led to a slightly lower shooting percentage (9.8), but he remains effective in a top-six role. He's yet to tally on the power play this year.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Four-point eruption Sunday

    Ehlers scored a goal and added three assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

    It was a huge night for the 25-year-old, who opened the scoring himself early in the second period and then facilitated the rest of Winnipeg's offense. Ehlers had a bit of a slow start to the season but is locked in now, piling up six goals and 11 points through eight games in December.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Assists on both goals in loss

    Ehlers registered two assists (one on the power play) and seven shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

The 25-year-old Ehlers has looked good in December with five tallies and two helpers in seven games. The Dane is up to 20 points, 119 shots, a plus-5 rating and 10 PIM in 29 contests. He's picked up just two assists on the power play -- he could be due for extra production there, as he had 13 power-play points in 47 outings last season.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Lights lamp twice Friday

    Ehlers scored two goals in Friday's 8-4 win over the Devils.

    The outburst snapped a five-game point drought for Ehlers, and he found the back of the net in the first and second periods on a wild night for the Winnipeg offense. The 25-year-old is streaky, so this could be the beginning of a surge, but on the season he still has a solid eight goals and 15 points through 23 contests.

    Ehlers returned to practice Thursday, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

  • Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Under the weather

    Ehlers didn't practice Wednesday due to a non-COVID illness, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Ehlers should thus be considered questionable for Thursday's game versus San Jose. If Ehlers is unable to go against the Sharks, the Jets may need to promote a forward from AHL Manitoba to fill in.
