Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Opens scoring in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a goal on a game-high six shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Calgary in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Ehlers raced up the right side through the neutral zone and gathered a perfect Dmitry Kulikov bank pass at the blue line before breaking in and beating Calgary netminder Cam Talbot. The goal broke a scoreless deadlock midway through the first period, but it was largely all Calgary from that point on. Ehlers has found the net in each of the last two games, racking up six shots in the process. He'll be asked to continue picking up the offensive slack in the absence of injured teammates Mark Scheifele (leg) and Patrick Laine (wrist).

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Notches game-winner Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a power-play goal midway through the third period Monday to give the Jets a 3-2 win over the Flames in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Camped out in the high slot, Ehlers redirected a Neal Pionk point shot past Cam Talbot while taking a stick in the face from Derek Forbort to give the Jets the win and tie the series up at 1-1. With stars like Patrik Laine (wrist) and Mark Scheifele (leg) sidelined for Winnipeg, players like Ehlers will need to continue to step up to advance past Calgary.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Held off scoresheet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (undisclosed) had two shots on goal, three hits and a minus-1 rating in 16:34 of ice time during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Flames in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Ehlers wasn't able to make an impact on the scoresheet in his return to action. He didn't end up missing any games after exiting Wednesday's exhibition match versus the Canucks. The Danish winger may be in line for bigger minutes in Monday's Game 2 if Patrik Laine (wrist) can't play.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (undisclosed) took line rushes prior to Saturday's game against the Flames, indicating he will be in the lineup in Game 1, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Ehlers exited Wednesday's exhibition match with a suspected lower-body injury after hobbling to the locker room, but it appears it won't cost him any time. Expect Ehlers to see time in his usual spot on the second line.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Leaves Wednesday's exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers exited Wednesday's exhibition match against the Canucks with an undisclosed injury, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

Ehlers, who dealt with a lower-body injury during training camp, got tangled with another player and "hobbled" to the locker room. Stay tuned to see if he'll be ready for Game 1 on Saturday against Calgary.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Back on ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (undisclosed) took the ice for practice Sunday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

The Danish-born player exited the team's scrimmage early Thursday, raising some concern ahead of the season's restart. With Ehlers back skating with the main group at practice, he'll likely assume his second-line role for the team when Winnipeg opens the playoffs against the Flames on Aug. 1. The 24-year-old supplied 58 points across 71 regular season games this campaign, so fantasy managers should keep an eye on him once the playoffs officially get underway.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Leaves scrimmage early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers exited the team's scrimmage early Thursday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.

Ehlers has been skating in a second-line role alongside Cody Eakin and Patrik Laine. The Jets have Friday off, so fantasy players will need to wait until Saturday's practice session to get any more details on the winger's status. If he does miss any game action, it will likely fall to Andrew Copp or Jack Roslovic to move up into a top-six spot.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Keys Winnipeg rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a goal and added a pair of assists in Monday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

With the Jets trailing 2-0 in the second period, Ehlers took a lead pass in the neutral zone, streaked up the right side and chipped a shot past Arizona goalie Darcy Kuemper for his 25th goal of the season. He also assisted on Tucker Poolman's game-tying goal late in the same period, then drew the secondary helper on Cody Eakin's game-winner midway through the third. Ehlers has piled up two goals and three assists in the last two games and boasts 57 points in 70 games on the season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Strikes early in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers potted a goal and dished a power-play assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Golden Knights.

Ehlers opened the scoring just 32 seconds into the game. He later assisted on Mathieu Perreault's second-period tally, which was the last goal of the game. The 24-year-old Ehlers is up to 54 points (24 goals, 30 helpers), 200 shots and a plus-10 rating in 69 contests this year. Despite a diminished power-play role -- five points with an average of 1:22 on the power play per game -- Ehlers could have a chance to match his career-best points total of 64, which he achieved in 2016-17.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Scores goal, assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a goal on five shots and picked up an assist versus Washington on Tuesday.

Ehlers has racked up three goals in his last five outings along with four helpers. Following the acquisition of Cody Eakin, the 23-year-old Ehlers doesn't appear to have been slowed down by being bumped to a third-line role. At this rate, the winger should be capable of pushing for the 60-point mark for the third time in his five-year NHL career.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Twinkles twine again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers picked up a goal on four shots in a 5-1 win over Ottawa on Thursday.

When Ehlers poked home a rebound in the middle frame to give Winnipeg a 4-1 lead, it marked his second straight game with a goal. Ehlers has now found the scoresheet in nine of his last 11 outings (four goals, seven assists). He has 22 goals and 49 points in 62 games on the year.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Piles up three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a goal and two assists and had a team-leading six shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Kings.

Ehlers' tally just under six minutes into the third counted as the game-winner, and he also picked up helpers on a pair of Blake Wheeler goals. Ehlers has hit the scoresheet in eight of his last 10 games (three goals, seven assists) and has totaled 21 goals and 48 points for the season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Scores in lopsided loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored his 20th goal of the season in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday.

Ehlers has posted four straight seasons with 20 or more goals. His snipe in Tuesday's effort was of little consequence, but the milestone is still one that shows how valuable an asset the Danish-born winger has been over the years.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Busts 10-game goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored an empty-net goal on three shots and had two PIM in a 4-2 win over the Blues on Thursday.

Ehlers' empty-netter was his first goal since Jan. 8. With 19 tallies on the season, the 23-year-old is closing in on his fourth straight 20-goal campaign. He's also produced 42 points and ranks third on the Jets with 151 shots on goal, providing Winnipeg -- and fantasy owners -- with another season of solid across-the-board production.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Assist streak at three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers notched an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Predators.

It's the third straight game the Dane has picked up a helper. Ehlers is at 41 points, 151 shots and a plus-5 rating through 54 games this season. At this pace, he could match his career high of 64 points from 2016-17, but he'll need to see a slight uptick offense. Ehlers' goal drought is now at 10 games.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Ends mini-slump with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Grabs two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers garnered a pair of assists in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Boston.

Ehlers is currently riding a three-game point streak and has racked up eight points in his last six outings. The winger is on pace to reach the 60-point mark for the third time in his five-year NHL career. The 23-year-old should continue to serve as a top-end fantasy option heading into the back half of the year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers tallied a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Maple Leafs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a shorthanded goal on five shots and added an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over Montreal.

Ehlers sprung Blake Wheeler on a breakaway shorthanded, but Wheeler returned the favor to throw a pass across the crease for an empty net for Ehlers to finish. The 23-year-old is now up to an even 17 goals, 17 assists and 123 shots across 43 games this campaign. He'll hope to ride the momentum into Wednesday's road clash with Toronto, as he's collected five points in his last five games.
