Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Injury comes to light
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers was playing through a broken foot in the playoffs, and won't play in the upcoming IIHF World Championship, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The injury stemmed from a play in which Ehlers blocked a shot from the Blues' Colton Parayko in Game 5. The 23-year-old experienced his lowest career point total in his fourth full season, racking up just 37 points in 62 games. Ehlers will likely use the offseason to train and get healthy, before he enters 2019-20 on the second year of his contract extension.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Will play for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (lower body) was on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 6 clash with St. Louis, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Ehlers was injured in Game 5 on Thursday when he blocked a shot by the Blues' Colton Parayko, but appears to be ready to go. The winger will slot into his usual second-line role with Patrik Laine, which bolsters his fantasy value.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Game-time call Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 6 matchup with St. Louis, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun.

Ehlers didn't skate Friday and is not slated to Saturday, but coach Paul Maurice indicated that he is not expecting to make any lineup changes for Game 6. The winger is still looking for his first postseason point, despite having put 16 shots on goal in the last five contests. If Ehlers were to miss Saturday's clash with the Blues, it would likely be Par Lindholm who would slot into the lineup.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Suffers apparent lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (lower body) had to be helped off the ice and into the locker room after blocking a shot late in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 Game 5 loss to the Blues, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Ehlers suffered what appeared to be a lower-body injury when he blocked a howitzer from St. Louis' Colton Parayko with less than a minute left in regulation. The Jets have yet to release any details regarding the 23-year-old winger's condition, but they'll certainly hope to have him available for a must-win Game 6 on Saturday after dropping Game 5 at home in dramatic fashion.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Generates helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers picked up an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

Ehlers has six points in nine games in March, but three of them came in an 8-1 win over the Hurricanes on March 8. For the year, the Danish winger has 34 points in 52 games in a campaign shortened by injury. He is virtually guaranteed to miss the 60-point plateau for the first time since his rookie year in 2015-16, when he gathered 38 points in 72 games.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Supplies three-point burst
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers scored a goal and added two helpers in Friday's 8-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Ehlers went plus-3 in the contest, adding two shots on goal. In seven games since his return from an upper-body injury, Ehlers has five points and 22 shots. He's up to 32 points in 47 games in his abbreviated campaign, and should be able to crack the 40-point mark if he produces at his usual rate.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Leads Jets in shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers provided an assist and six shots on goal in Friday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

Since returning from an upper-body injury, Ehlers has a goal and an assist in four games, while adding nine shots and five hits. He has 29 points in 44 games this year, a far cry from the back-to-back 60-point seasons he produced in his last two campaigns. Hopefully, the addition of Kevin Hayes to the second line will spark the Danish winger's production down the stretch.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Surprise addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Friday, contradicting what coach Paul Maurice said Thursday, Sara Orlesky of reports.

It's unclear exactly where Ehlers will slot in for the Jets, but his return a day earlier than expected could give him a bit more utility from a fantasy standpoint. Prior to his injury, Ehlers worked on the top line, but Kyle Connor has performed well in that role. The Danish forward should wind up somewhere in the top six and will likely be immediately added to the power play upon his return.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Possibly returning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets head coach Paul Maurice said Ehlers (upper body) could return Sunday against the Coyotes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

This news effectively rules out Ehlers for Friday's road clash with the Golden Knights, but it's clear that Ehlers is rounding out his recovery from an upper-body injury that's already shelved him for 20 straight games. It's worth checking your league's free-agency pool to see if the Danish winger was dropped earlier in his recovery. Ehlers has crafted a 0.68 points-per-game pace over four years of NHL service time and is not some run-of-the-mill skater.

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

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

While Ehlers looks to be nearing a return to the lineup, it's worth noting that he was subbed in for Blake Wheeler on the top line during the practice session, suggesting Friday against the Golden Knights may still be a bit too early. When cleared to return, the 23-year-old winger should immediately slot into a top-six role for the Jets.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Timeline pushed out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) won't return to the lineup for at least a week, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Head coach Paul Maurice emphasized that the change in timeline doesn't mean that Ehlers suffered a setback, but that he could now miss up to three weeks. The Danish winger has missed the past 17 games, but was scoring at a 30-goal pace before being injured, with 15 markers in 40 contests.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Ruled out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) won't suit up for the Jets' next two outings versus the Rangers and the Avalanche on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

While Ehlers could be an option against Ottawa on Saturday, the winger seems more likely to slot back into the lineup during the club's three-game road trip that kicks off Feb. 20 versus Colorado. Once given the all-clear, the winger should retake his spot on the second line, which will see Jack Roslovic relegated to a bottom-six role.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Practices with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) practiced in non-contact garb Friday,

Jets coach Paul Maurice issued an update on Ehlers' status. "The window will be open in about seven or eight days," Maurice said. "He's touching the puck today with the group for the first time. He's on pace. There's not a lot of room with this one. We're going to wait a certain amount of time then see where he's at." Winnipeg has won nine of 14 games after losing the Dane to his upper-body injury back on Jan. 4.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Apparently not far from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers "could be close to returning in about a week," Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Ehlers has missed the last eight games, with the Jets winning six of those without him. The 22-year-old winger is under contract with the Jets through the 2024-25 campaign at $6 million per season, so you can bet that he'll reprise his typical top-six, power-play role once cleared medically. Ehlers has 15 goals, 12 assists -- including six man-advantage points -- through 40 contests this season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) has been designated for injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Considering Ehlers is expected to be out until February, his placement on IR shouldn't come as a surprise. The Jets haven't utilized the extra roster spot to make a call-up yet, but will likely do so prior to Thursday's trip to Minnesota. With Ehlers sidelined, Kyle Connor has moved back to the first line, while Jack Roslovic will get a shot at playing alongside Patrik Laine.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Facing extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers (upper body) won't return until early-to-mid February, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

Ehlers was injured Friday when he collided with Penguins star Sidney Crosby, whose team saddled Winnipeg with a 4-0 loss. This is a tough pill for the Jets to swallow considering Ehlers averaged 0.675 points per game over 40 contests in the season's first half, and there's suddenly a spot open on the No. 2 power play as well. Mason Appleton and/or Nic Petan could see more playing time with Ehlers out of the picture, but with those players being centers, the Jets may have to summon a winger from AHL Manitoba.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Exits game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers won't return to Friday's game versus the Penguins after suffering an upper-body injury, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Ehlers collided with Sidney Crosby during the first period and went directly to the locker room. He eventually returned for a shift before heading immediately back to the room. His absence will shake up the top six. Expect an update before Sunday's home game versus the Stars.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Records hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers' empty-netter finished a hat trick Thursday, as his team skated to a 5-3 win over the Sharks.

Playing on a line with Mark Schiefele and Blake Wheeler can do wonders for your scoring, which is the case for Ehlers, who has three multi-goal games since his promotion to Winnipeg's top line. He's reemerged as a matchup-proof fantasy option in all types of formats.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Tallies three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers registered a trio of points in Sunday's 5-4 victory over the Lightning.

Ehlers found the back of the net twice and picked up an assist with the man advantage, his sixth power-play point of the year. If the winger can continue to produce and suit up on the Jets' top line, he should be capable of reaching the 60-point mark for a third consecutive season.

Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Makes impact in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ehlers picked up a pair of assists in a 7-1 win over the Flyers on Sunday.

One helper came with the man advantage, and Ehlers now has nine goals and 10 assists in 29 games. The Dane is in the midst of another solid campaign with the Jets, occupying a key role in the league's eighth-ranked offense. Up next is a date with Chicago on Tuesday. Last time these two teams met, Ehlers exploded for three goals.
