He was unable to practice prior to that test due to the league's protocols, but he still came through with a helper on Mark Scheifele's second-period goal.

Ehlers was forced to miss practice leading up to Thursday's game due to the league's new virus protocols, but he tested negative in time to play. The 24-year-old racked up 25 goals last season in 71 games, as he's hoping to hit the 20-goal threshold for the fifth straight year in a top-six role in 2021.

Ehlers' (COVID-19 protocols) status for Thursday's clash with Calgary remains uncertain as the Jets await his test results, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
In 71 appearances last season, Ehlers recorded 25 goals on 203 shots, which saw him crest the 20-goal threshold for the fourth straight year. With the abridged season, the 24-year-old winger could struggle to reach that mark this year, especially if he misses any significant time. If Ehlers can't play, Andrew Copp is slated to move into his spot on the top line.

Ehlers hasn't officially tested positive for COVID-19 yet, so it may still be possible for him to play in the season opener versus Calgary on Thursday depending on the results of the testing.

The Danish-born player exited the team's scrimmage early Thursday, raising some concern ahead of the season's restart.

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.

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.
