Scheifele (leg) told reporters he won't need surgery and anticipates being 100 percent for the 2020-21 campaign, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Scheifele ended the regular season with six goals and eight helpers in his final 11 games, helping him reach the 70-point mark for the second straight year. Assuming he's fully fit, the world-class center should continue being a top point producer for the Jets and an elite-level fantasy option.
Scheifele (leg) apparently didn't suffer a significant injury, as coach Paul Maurice told reporters, "We don't think there's any Achilles damage," Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

As long as there isn't any significant damage, the world-class center figures to be ready to go for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. Considering he topped the 70-point mark in each of the previous two campaigns, season-long fantasy players should be looking at Scheifele early in their drafts.

Scheifele's absence shouldn't come as a surprise, though TSN's Frank Seravalli reports the center suffered no Achilles damage. The team won't provide much in terms of updates on the Ontario native's status, and it seems unlikely he'll be ready to go for Tuesday's Game 3.
