Laine picked up a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Laine has failed to record a point in just one game this season, and he's up to 12 through eight games in 2019-20. The Finnish winger has been the Jets' best offensive player in the early going, clearly motivated to prove his worth after he spent a good portion of the summer holding out for a new contract.
Laine scored two goals and added two assists to finish with four points in a 5-2 win over the Wild on Thursday.
The Finnish sniper's first goal came in the second period and gave Winnipeg a 2-1 lead. Laine would add another marker in the third period, scoring into an empty net. His two helpers came on goals by Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor. The 21-year-old has been on fire to start the year, collecting 10 points in the Jets' first five games. He's a fantasy gold mine at the moment.
Laine bagged three assists in a 4-1 Jets win over the Penguins on Tuesday.
Laine has points in every game this season and now has six total to begin the year. Somewhat uncharacteristically, Laine has done most of his damage at even strength, managing only one power-play assist through Winnipeg's first four contests. It's still early, though, and the Finnish-born winger's production on the power play should increase as the season gets going.
Laine scored the Jets' only goal of a 4-1 loss to the Islanders on Sunday.
His second-period tally cut the deficit to 3-1, but the Jets were unable to muster any more offense. Laine had four shots, two hits and two blocked shots in the contest. The Finnish winger has produced a respectable three-game point streak with a goal and two helpers to start the year.
Laine recorded a power-play assist in Thursday's 6-4 defeat to the Rangers.
Laine put four shots on net, but wasn't able to sneak one past Henrik Lundqvist. After putting up the lowest point total of his young career in 2018-19 (50), the Finn will no doubt be motivated to get back to being on of the elite producers in the NHL this season. If he can avoid the extended slumps that plagued him last year, the elite sniper should be capable of topping the 40-goal mark in 2019-20.
Laine agreed to terms on a two-year, $13.5 million contract with the Jets on Friday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
After seeing fellow RFA's Matthew Tkachuk and Brayden Point land similar deals, Laine decided to end his standoff with Winnipeg. The elite sniper is unlikely to suit up in any preseason contests, but should link up with the club ahead of its Opening Night clash versus the Rangers on Oct. 3. The Finn is coming off a down year in which he barely cracked the 50-point mark and was held under 35 goals for the first time in his three-year career. If Laine can avoid a similar slump to start the 2019-20 campaign, he should be capable of reaching the 70-point threshold.
Laine (contract dispute) is training with SC Bern in Switzerland while the restricted free agent remains unsigned by the Jets.
Jets coach Paul Maurice is actually pleased with this development, as training with a pro team should keep Laine in shape while he remains away from Winnipeg. On the other hand, this also suggests that the three-time 30-goal scorer isn't particularly close to striking a deal with the Jets. While it has been theorized that Mitch Marner's six-year contract with a $10.893 AAV with the Maple Leafs could set the market and help further negotiations with other high-profile restricted free agents around the league, that doesn't seem to be the case with Laine's situation thus far.
Laine was not included on the Jets' roster when training camp kicked off Friday due to his lingering contract dispute.
The 21-year-old Finn's new deal could be one of the more difficult RFA contracts to knock out, as the Jets also have to get Kyle Connor under contract and Laine's coming off a disappointing 2018-19 campaign. The sharp-shooting winger registered the lowest point total (50) of his three-year NHL career last season, but still managed to rack up 30 goals. Fantasy owners should consider the winger's 2018-19 production as his floor. He's capable of being a 40-goal, 70-point producer every year.
Laine received a qualifying offer from Winnipeg on Tuesday.
In perhaps the least surprising move in NHL history, the Jets formally issued a qualifying offer to Laine in order to prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent July 1. There is also zero chance the world-class winger signs the one-year, $874,125 offer, but the two sides figure to continue to work on a deal throughout the coming weeks.
Laine will bow out of the 2019 IIHF World Championship after dealing with groin/back issues in the playoffs, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Laine went through a handful of slumps this season, which could have been the result of playing hurt, and it showed on his year-end stat line, as the world-class sniper barely reached the 30-goal threshold and tallied his lowest point total (50) since breaking into the league. Still, the Finn remains one of the elite scorers in the NHL and should get back to being a 40-goal producer next season.
Laine scored a goal and added a power-play assist and three hits in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 3.
Laine has scored a goal in each game of the series so far, adding seven hits and nine shots. It's not totally unexpected from the Finnish sniper, but he did end the regular season on a six-game pointless skid, so his playoff success is a welcome return to form. He'll look to keep the twine-tickling run going in Tuesday's Game 4.
Laine scored a power-play goal on five shots and added three hits in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Blues for Game 2 of their first-round series.
Laine has two goals -- representing half of the Jets' offense in the series -- as well as eight shots in the first two games. He's coming off a career-worst 50 points in 82 games this year, but he still hit 30 goals, and he's showing all of his elite scoring skill so far. However, with coach Paul Maurice not having the last change in Games 3 and 4, Laine may find his matchups less favorable in St. Louis.
Laine scored a goal in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Blues in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.
Even in a loss, the Jets have got to be happy that Laine found the back of the net, considering the Finn had scored only one goal since March. 1. No other Jets player tickled twine Wednesday which resulted in Winnipeg dropping Game 1 at home. It'll now look to even the series Friday before it shifts to St. Louis.
Laine found the back of the net in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Stars.
The power-play marker snaps Laine's goalless drought at 12 games and moves him up to 30 goals on the year, to go along with 20 assists. It's not all positive though, as Laine continues to struggle on the defensive side of things, owning a team-worst minus-17 rating through 76 games in 2018-19.
Laine grabbed an assist in Saturday's clash with Nashville.
Laine remains bogged down in a 12-game goal drought, but has racked up seven helpers over that stretch. The winger is back on his more natural right side as coach Paul Maurice tries to find the right combination of linemates to get him out of his funk.
Laine dished out a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Bruins.
Known more for his goal-scoring prowess, Laine has done most of his damage as a distributor of late, racking up six assists in his last six games. The assists have helped keep owners' minds off Laine's seven-game goal drought, but he should snap that soon enough considering he's just one tally shy of a third consecutive 30-goal season to open his career.
Laine picked up an assist in Friday's 8-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Laine has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last eight games, with four goals and five assists in that span. Seeing the sniper on a run of helpers is a bit unusual, but it's got him up to 45 points (29 goals, 16 assists) in 67 games this season. It'll still likely be the worst of his three years in the league, but the recent hot stretch is encouraging given his relative lack of production in December and January.
Laine snagged a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay.
Laine continues to thrive on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit, as he's racked up eight points in his last seven games, including six with the man advantage. The elite sniper won't match his career-high 70 points from last season, but should easily get to the 50-point mark and might have just enough time to push for 60.
Laine tallied a helper in Sunday's 5-2 victory over Columbus.
Laine appears to have re-discovered his scoring touch, as he racked up seven points in his last six outings, including five with the man advantage. With the winger firing on all cylinders, coach Paul Maurice will likely be hesitant to move the youngster off of the top line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler.
Laine lit the lamp and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's loss to the Wild.
In the first period, he fed a pass to Mark Scheifele, who snuck one past Devan Dubnyk to open the scoring. Laine notched a goal of his own by camping out in front of Dubnyk and tipping Ben Chiarot's shot into the net. After a brutal 15-game goalless slump, Laine is back on track with four goals in the last three games.
