Scheifele will not be available for Opening Night to kick off the 2021-22 campaign as he has one game remaining on his suspension.
Unfortunately for Scheifele, the Jets were swept in their best-of-seven series with Montreal while he still had one game left to serve on his four-game ban. Even with his suspension, the 28-year-old center should be capable of putting up 70-80 points next year with a full 82-game season. Considering the Ontario native has racked up 20-plus goals in six straight campaigns, fantasy players should consider selecting Scheifele early in drafts next fall.
Scheifele has received a four-game suspension for his hit on Jake Evans in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to Montreal.
Evans needed to be stretchered off the ice after Scheifele laid down a brutal hit in the final minute of Wednesday's contest. Now, Winnipeg's regular-season scoring leader will be out until Game 6 on June 11, if that game is still necessary. The 28-year-old had five points in as many games so far this postseason. Paul Stastny (undisclosed) could take over as the top-line center if he's able to suit up for Friday's Game 2 tilt.
Scheifele will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Thursday for charging on Montreal's Jake Evans.
Scheifele's meeting is not an in-person hearing, so the max suspension that can be levied is five games. Still, with the Jets dropping the first game in the series to the Habs, losing their leading scorer from the regular season (63 points) won't improve Winnipeg's chances of advancing. The absence of Paul Stastny (undisclosed) will further stretch the center depth for the Jets and could see Pierre-Luc Dubois elevated to the first line.
Scheifele recorded 17 PIM and two shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Montreal in Game 1.
After Jake Evans sealed the deal for the Habs on an empty-net goal, Scheifele came flying in on Evans and hit him high, causing the Montreal forward to lay motionless on the ice. The Jets' star center seemingly let his emotions get the better of him throughout the game, as he was continuously involved in post-whistle scrums during his 24:43 of ice time. Scheifele wasn't assessed a match penalty on the play, but it seems supplemental discipline is a plausible -- if not likely -- scenario. If Scheifele is suspended, it will be handed out by the league prior to Game 2 on Friday.
Scheifele scored two goals on seven shots in Monday night's 4-3 triple overtime win over the Oilers in Game 4.
Opening the scoring early in the contest on a wicked one-timer, Scheifele continued to dominate the game in the third period with another top-shelf goal on Mike Smith. The 28-year-old continued his dominance in overtime with multiple chances to end the game and finished the series with five points in four contests. Scheifele and the Jets will now have to wait and see whether they face Montreal or Toronto in Round 2.
Scheifele posted an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Oilers in Game 3.
Scheifele helped out on a Blake Wheeler goal at 14:28 of the third period. Through three playoff games, Scheifele has racked up three helpers, five shots, seven blocked shots and a plus-2 rating. The top-line center ended the regular season with eight points in his last five contests, and he's kept the hot run going as the Jets have earned a 3-0 series lead over the Oilers.
Scheifele posted two assists, two shots on net and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers.
Scheifele had a hand in empty-net goals by linemates Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler late in the third period. The 28-year-old Scheifele ended the regular season on a five-game point streak (two tallies, six helpers), and it looks like he's kept the momentum rolling in the playoffs. The first-line center will likely be involved in a lot of the Jets' scoring plays in their first-round series against the Oilers.
Scheifele produced a pair of assists in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Scheifele had a hand in both of winger Kyle Connor's tallies Friday. The 28-year-old Scheifele finished at or above a point-per-game pace for the fifth straight season.

Scheifele produced a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Flames.
On the Jets' fourth goal, Blake Wheeler earned his 800th career point on a feed from Scheifele for his 500th point. The milestone for Scheifele came in 571 games. He's just one goal shy of 200 in his career, as well. The 28-year-old center has been strong in 2020-21 with 19 tallies, 56 points, 113 shots on net and 17 power-play points through 52 contests.

Scheifele was benched for 16:59 on Saturday in a 4-1 loss to Toronto. The benching bridged the second and third periods.
Obviously Scheifele raised the ire of his coach, who was clearly frustrated. "We have some things that we value as a group," Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. "Mark's a real competitive guy. Sometimes that gets the best of him I think. We just need to adhere to our core values." Scheifele is in the middle of a career season and he's a proud guy. This will likely light a fire under him.
Scheifele scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Toronto.
The 28-year-old's incredible season continues. Scheifele is eighth in the NHL in both points (54) and assists (36). Last season, he finished 20th overall and was 38th overall in 2018-19. That makes Scheifele a strong keeper in dynasty formats for 2021-22, while he continues to deliver for surging playoff fantasy teams in the current campaign.
Scheifele had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-2 victory over the Maple Leafs.
His goal, which came on a breakaway, chased starter Jack Campbell from the game after he allowed three goals on six shots. Scheifele is in the middle of a six-game, eight-point streak that includes six helpers. This season, Scheifele's game has taken the next step forward -- after four straight seasons of essentially point-per-game production, he has 52 points in 44 games and sits seventh in the NHL in scoring.
Scheifele registered a goal on five shots in a 3-2 win over the Senators on Wednesday.
