Stastny was traded to the Jets from the Golden Knights on Friday in exchange for Carl Dahlstrom and a 2022 fourth-round pick, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Stastny will make his return to Winnipeg following a two-year stint in Vegas. When he last played for the Jets, the 34-year-old veteran was a deadline acquisition and logged 13 points in 19 regular-season contests. While ultimately coming up short, Stastny's six goals and nine helpers in the 2018 NHL Playoffs helped the organization make a deep run. With the second-line center position solidified, Winnipeg will be free to move Blake Wheeler back to the wing on the first line. Stastny should also see time with the man advantage and figures to be a top-end fantasy target next season.

Per Granger, head coach Pete DeBoer said Stastny's injury is not serious, and the center will be evaluated prior to Sunday's contest.

Stastny's ice-time average has dropped by close to a minute per game compared to last season (18:06 vs. 17:08), but the good news is that he's back to a double-digit output on the man advantage for the first time in four years. Stastny has five power-play goals and five power-play helpers thanks in large part to his role on the first unit. The veteran pivot has extensive playoff experience and remains a decent low-end fantasy option should the 2019-20 campaign ultimately resume.
