  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Shipped back to AHL

    Gustafsson was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    A second-round draft pick in 2018, Gustafsson hasn't done much in limited NHL action, posting a single point across 26 games while averaging less than six minutes of ice time. He recorded 19 points in 22 games last year with the Moose, though, so if he continues to develop his game in the minors, he's likely to get another shot with the Jets soon.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Dropped to minors

    Gustafsson was demoted to AHL Manitoba on Thursday.

    While Gustafsson's reassignment could be nothing more than a paper transaction, it also might be an indication the Adam Lowry (upper body) will be available against Montreal on Friday. The 21-year-old Gustafsson will likely struggle to break into the lineup the rest of the season, making him a non-factor in fantasy contests.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: On active roster Wednesday

    Gustafsson was promoted to the active roster under emergency conditions Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Gustafsson ended up as a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game versus the Oilers. The Swede may fill a similar injury-insurance role until Adam Lowry (upper body) is able to return.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Promoted to taxi squad

    Gustafsson was reassigned to the taxi squad Wednesday.

    Gustafsson hasn't appeared in a game for Winnipeg since Feb 4 against Calgary, when he logged a meager 5:33 of ice time. Even with his promotion to the taxi squad, fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting much in the way of fantasy value from the 21-year-old center.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Shuffles to minors

    Gustafsson was assigned to AHL Manitoba on Thursday.

    Gustafsson has been on the taxi squad since Feb. 11, and he hasn't played at the NHL level since Feb. 4. A second-round pick in 2018, Gustafsson should handle consistent top-six minutes in the AHL as he looks to fine-tune his craft before his next NHL opportunity.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Sent to taxi squad

    Gustafsson was demoted to the taxi squad Thursday.

    Gustafsson has appeared in four games with the Jets this season but hasn't registered a point. The 20-year-old center has routinely jumped between the taxi squad and active roster and should continue doing so for most of the season.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Moves to active roster

    Gustafsson was activated from the taxi squad Tuesday.

    Jansen Harkins (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, opening a spot for Gustafsson to rise to the active roster. It's uncertain if he'll suit up for Tuesday's game against the Flames. The 20-year-old has suited up for four games this year, averaging just 5:49 of ice time per contest with no points to show for it.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Dropped to taxi squad

    Gustafsson was reassigned to the taxi squad Friday.

    After logging just 5:33 of ice time against Calgary on Thursday, in which he failed to register any significant stats, Gustafsson is back on the taxi squad. Unless Jansen Harkins (lower body) is cleared to play against Calgary on Tuesday, Gustafsson will likely be bumped back up to the active roster before puck drop.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Shuffles to active roster

    The Jets recalled Gustafsson from the taxi squad and placed him on their active roster Saturday.

    Despite being promoted to the active roster, Gustafsson isn't expected to be in the lineup for Saturday night's matchup with Ottawa. The 20-year-old pivot potted one goal in 22 appearances with Winnipeg last season.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Recalled to taxi squad

    Gustafsson was promoted to the taxi squad from AHL Manitoba on Friday.

    With the Jets dealing with injuries to Patrik Laine (upper body) and Nate Thompson (lower body), the team decided to add some reinforcements ahead of a back-to-back against the Senators and Oilers on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Barring additional injuries, Gustafsson probably shouldn't be expected to play in either contest.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Dropped to AHL level

    Gustafsson was reassigned from Winnipeg's taxi squad to AHL Manitoba on Wednesday.

    The 20-year-old center will get a chance to work on his game in the minor leagues rather than sticking around as emergency depth for the big club. Gustafsson sported a non-contact jersey in practice earlier this month but he has since shaken off whatever injury had been bothering him.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Shakes non-contact jersey

    Gustafsson (undisclosed) practiced without limitations Sunday, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Gustafsson wore a non-contact jersey for the first few practices of training camp, but he's back to full speed just four days away from the season opener. The 2018 second-round pick played 22 games for the Jets last year, although he averaged just 6:09 of ice time per contest. He'll look to gain an increased role to start the season. Otherwise, Gustafsson's development would be best served by handling top-six minutes with AHL Manitoba.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Wearing non-contact sweater

    Gustafsson (undisclosed) was on the ice for Tuesday's practice session in a non-contact jersey, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Gustafsson picked up his undisclosed injury while playing in Europe for Tingsryds. Prior to getting hurt, the 20-year-old center tallied seven goals and 10 assists in 16 games for the Swedish club. The fact that Gustafsson is able to participate in a portion of practice could clear the way for him to land at least a spot on the taxi squad.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: In doubt for camp

    Gustafsson is dealing with an undisclosed injury suffered while playing overseas and is questionable for the start of training camp, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Gustafsson saw action in just 22 games for Winnipeg last year in which he recorded one goal on four shots, four PIM and five hits. While playing overseas, the 20-year-old center garnered seven goals and 10 helpers in 16 appearances with Tingsryds AIF (Sweden) before sustaining his injury. If Gustafsson misses a significant portion of camp, it could impact his ability to make the 23-man roster for Opening Night, though he could still land on the taxi squad.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Loaned to Swedish team

    Gustafsson will start the 2020-21 campaign on loan with Tingsryds AIF in Sweden.

    Gustafsson saw action in 22 games for the Jets this season, garnering one goal, four shots and five hits while averaging a mere 6:09 of ice time. The 19-year-old center figures to rejoin the team ahead of the NHL 2020-21 campaign and should be a candidate for a regular spot on the 23-man roster.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Taking part in camp

    Gustafsson is with Winnipeg for the start of training camp Monday, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Gustafsson played in 22 games for the Jets at the start of the season before leaving to join Sweden for the 2020 World Junior Championships. The 20-year-old forward figures to be a near-lock for the roster heading into the 2020-21 campaign and could be worth stashing in dynasty formats.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Sent to AHL affiliate

    The Jets assigned Gustafsson (undisclosed) to AHL Manitoba on Thursday.

    Gustafsson recently finished the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship tournament, notching four points in seven appearances with Team Sweden. The 2018 second-round pick will likely be back with the big club later this season, but he'll take on a featured role with the Jets' minor-league affilate for now.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Picks up injury

    Gustafsson sustained a minor injury while with Sweden at the 2020 World Junior Championships, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

    Gustafsson's injury further muddies the waters in terms of where the team wants him to report. Prior to heading to the Czech Republic, the 19-year-old was with Winnipeg in the NHL but may be sent to AHL Manitoba instead. When in the lineup for the Jets, the center averaged a meager 6:09 of ice time in 22 appearances and would log significantly more minutes with the Moose.

  • Jets' David Gustafsson: Headed to World Junior Championships

    Gustafsson will join Team Sweden at the 2020 World Junior Championships in the Czech Republic.

    Gustafsson has been a healthy scratch for the Jets' last three games and is averaging a mere 6:09 of ice time when included in the lineup. Given his limited usage, it certainly shouldn't come as a shock that the Jets are willing to loan him to the youth national team. If Bryan Little (ear) is cleared to play by the time the tournament is over, Gustafsson could find himself headed to AHL Manitoba.
