Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Manages helper, Jets still grounded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers provided an assist in a 5-3 loss to the Canadiens on Wednesday for Game 1.

Ehlers delivered a primary apple on Kyle Connor's third-period tally to give the Jets hope in the waning moments of the contest, but the Habs ultimately prevailed thanks to a scoring barrage in the first frame. The Danish winger has looked strong since returning from an upper-body injury in the opening series against the Oilers, with Ehlers adding two goals and an assist while averaging 20:29 of ice time between three games.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Heroic return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) scored twice on three shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Oilers in Game 3.

Ehlers returned from an 11-game absence to play Sunday. He didn't take long to make an impact, scoring the Jets' first goal with a power-play snipe in the second period. His second tally of the contest was even bigger, as he completed a comeback from a 4-1 deficit with the game-winner in overtime. The Dane had a strong regular season with 21 goals and 46 points in 47 outings, and he doesn't appear to have missed a beat judging by his debut in the 2021 playoffs.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Returning for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) will return to the lineup for Sunday's matchup against Edmonton, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Ehlers will make his playoff debut Sunday, as he'll return to the lineup for the first time since April 24. The 25-year-old should be a boost to the Jets offense, as the team has scored five goals through the first two games of the series. In 47 games this season, Ehlers racked up 21 goals and 46 points across 16:54 of average ice time. Look for Ehlers to return to his normal top-six role while seeing action on the power play.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) will miss Friday's Game 2 clash with Edmonton, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Coach Paul Maurice did indicate that Ehlers could be an option for Game 3 on Sunday, though nothing has been confirmed at this time. Without Ehlers in the lineup, Pierre-Luc Dubois will slot into his second-line wing role. Once cleared to play, Ehlers figures to provide some much-needed offensive firepower after reaching the 20-goal threshold for the fifth straight season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) will be sidelined for Game 1 versus Edmonton on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Ehlers has been out of action since April 24 against the Maple Leafs and will be shelved for his 10th consecutive outing due to his upper-body problem. Once cleared to play, the winger should immediately slot into a top-six role on the second line and will provide the club with some much-needed scoring options. Until then, Kristian Vesalainen figures to get the first crack at a top-six role with Pierre-Luc Dubois (undisclosed) also unavailable.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Officially labeled game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) is considered a game-time decision against the Oilers on Wednesday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports, though he skated in a non-contact jersey Tuesday.

Considering Ehlers hasn't been cleared for contact, it's hard to imagine he will be in the lineup for Game 1, but he hasn't been officially ruled out. Even if the 25-year-old winger is shelved Wednesday, he appears to be trending in the right direction and could be an option later in the series.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Practices in non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) practiced Sunday in a non-contact jersey, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

Ehlers has been sidelined since April 24 but is hoping to heal up in time for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Oilers. He'll likely need at least one full-contact practice to have a realistic chance of suiting up for the Jets' playoff opener. Ehlers' return would be a major boost to Winnipeg's offense, as he racked up 21 goals and 25 assists in 47 appearances during the regular season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Could return in playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) hasn't been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 1 matchup with Edmonton, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Coach Paul Maurice also didn't confirm that Ehlers would be ready in time for the playoffs, though it would appear the winger is at least trending in the right direction. The news does effectively rule the 25-year-old out for the season finale against Toronto on Friday. Once given the all-clear, Ehlers should be a lock for the top six and would give the team a significant boost in terms of attacking options.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Begins skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) was on the ice ahead of Monday's game-day skate, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Ehlers was already ruled out for the remainder of the regular season, so this latest update doesn't change his status but could be a sign he'll be ready to play in the postseason. Once given the all-clear, the 25-year-old winger will be a lock for a top-six role and should give the Jets some more attacking options.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Done for regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers will miss the remainder of the regular season with an upper-body injury, though the team expects him back for the postseason. Coach Paul Maurice told reporters, "We're confident and hopeful he'll be back for the start of the playoffs."

All told, Ehlers will likely be sidelined for 10 games due to his upper-body issue. In his previous 12 contests, the 25-year-old winger racked up six goals on 35 shots and seven assists, including four power-play points. Ehlers trails only Kyle Connor for the team lead in goals with 21 on the year. Without the Dane available, Mason Appleton figures to move into a first-line role in addition to joining the No. 1 power-play unit.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Now top-10 NHL goal scorer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers notched two goals Thursday in a 5-2 win over Toronto.

He's the model of consistency -- this is his fifth consecutive season with 20 goals. Ehlers has achieved this feat in just 44 games and that pace puts him in the top-10 goal scorers in the NHL. And he is just two goals out of a tie with Leon Draisaitl and Alex Ovechkin, who both have 22.

It was the third consecutive contest with a goal for Ehlers, who is also on a four-game point streak. The 24-year-old has racked up 42 points and a career-high plus-16 rating in 42 games.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Point-per-game pace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-0 win over Montreal.

He fired a wrist shot from the left point that beat Jake Allen. Ehlers has a goal in each of his last two games after going goalless in 10. And he has points in his last three (two goals, three assists). Ehlers' ascension to stardom continues -- he has 41 points in as many games.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: First goal in 11 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers tallied a goal on four shots Thursday in a 4-2 victory over Montreal.

The 24-year-old used a burst of speed to streak into the Montreal zone and snap a shot past Jake Allen from the left faceoff circle, giving the Jets a 3-1 lead late in the first period. The goal, which proved to be the game-winner, ended Ehlers' 10-game dry spell. He now has 16 goals and 39 points in 40 games to go along with a career-best plus-15 rating.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Two points against Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers notched two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 4-3 win over the Senators.

The 25-year-old had a hand in the Jets' final two goals of the evening, including Kyle Connor's eventual game-winner late in the second period. Ehlers has five multi-point efforts in the last 15 games, and on the season he has 15 goals and 38 points through 39 contests.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Serves up trio of apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers recorded three assists and went plus-3 in Monday's 5-1 win over the Flames.

Ehlers had a hand in both of Mark Scheifele's goals as well as an Andrew Copp tally in Monday's big win. The 25-year-old Ehlers had just two assists in six games before his breakout against the Flames. The Danish winger has collected 15 goals, 21 assists, 114 shots on net and a plus-15 rating through 36 contests in 2020-21.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Collects power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers notched a power-play assist and five shots on goal in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

Ehlers set up the second of Andrew Copp's four goals in the contest. The 25-year-old Ehlers has a goal and three helpers in his last six outings, a slight dip in production from his earlier pace. He's still working at a point-per-game level with 15 tallies and 18 assists in 33 appearances. The Dane has added 108 shots, nine power-play points and a plus-12 rating.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Plucks pair of apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers recorded two assists, one on the power play, and a game-high seven shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Ehlers had the primary helper on both of the Jets' goals. He set up Andrew Copp on the power play and was later judged to have earned the first assist on a Pierre-Luc Dubois goal at the 15:27 mark of the first period. That was it for the Jets' offense Saturday, but it was another productive outing for Ehlers. He has 15 goals, 33 points, 98 shots and a plus-12 rating in 31 outings.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Snipes OT winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers produced a goal and an assist with two shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over Montreal.

Ehlers led a 3-on-1 rush in the opening minute of overtime and elected to shoot, beating Carey Price from just inside the left faceoff circle for his 15th goal of the season. He also picked up an assist on Kyle Connor's first-period goal, giving Ehlers his third multi-point performance in the last five games. The 24-year-old is tracking toward his first season of better than a point-per-game production, tallying 31 in 29 contests to date. Ehlers also boasts a team-best plus-12 rating.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Breakout year continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto.

Ehlers is good, but did anyone see this year's performance coming? He has 13 goals and 28 points in 26 games and sits a remarkable 13th in league scoring. Ehlers has five points in his last two games, but the goals snapped a five-game drought. He's just 25 so this burst could be real. We're inclined to trade high, especially in keeper formats -- take advantage of Ehlers' outburst.
