Laine (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
With the Jets' ability to place Laine on IR retroactively, this designation should be considered a procedural move as it shouldn't have any impact on his timetable for return. Once cleared to play, Laine should continue to serve as a top-end fantasy option, especially based on his three-point season debut against Calgary on Jan. 14.
Laine (upper body) will not be available against the Senators on Saturday, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Laine will miss his fourth consecutive contest with what continues to be deemed a day-to-day issue. Andrew Copp figures to continue filling a top-six role while Laine is sidelined, though he won't offer anything close to the same level of offensive production. Additionally, Paul Stastny has been elevated to the No. 1 power-play unit, bolstering his fantasy value. With the upcoming back-to-back, it seems unlikely Laine will be ready for Sunday's clash with Edmonton, either.
Laine (upper body), as expected, will not be in the lineup against Ottawa on Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Laine will be on the shelf for his third straight contest due to his lingering upper-body injury. It's certainly a disappointment for the 22-year-old winger considering he put together a dominant performance in the season opener with three points versus the Flames. Once fully fit, Laine should not only immediately retake a spot in the top six, but also link up with the No. 1 power-play unit, making him a top-end fantasy option when healthy.
Laine (upper body) was labeled "doubtful" for Thursday's game against Ottawa by coach Paul Maurice on Wednesday, Brent Wallace of TSN Ottawa reports.
Laine appears to be headed for a third consecutive absence. The Jets managed to pull out a 4-3 overtime win in Ottawa without the sniper Tuesday, balancing the lines by moving Nikolaj Ehlers down from the first line into Laine's usual spot on the second while promoting Andrew Copp to the first-line role vacated by Ehlers. The team will likely stick with that alignment again Thursday.
Laine (upper body) will miss Tuesday's clash with Ottawa, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
It will be the second straight game on the shelf for Laine as he continues to deal with an upper-body injury. In the season-opener, the 22-year-old winger was nearly unstoppable with two goals on three shots and one helper. Once given the all-clear, the Finn should be a lock to resume his spot in the top six. In the meantime, Mathieu Perreault figures to continue featuring on the second line.
Laine (upper body) won't play Monday in Toronto, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Laine tried to give it a go in Monday's morning skate after departing Sunday's practice, but he only lasted a few minutes Monday and won't play in the evening's game as a result. His next chance to rejoin the lineup will come Tuesday in Ottawa, though there's a good chance Laine won't be ready to play by then.
Laine (undisclosed) was on the ice briefly to begin Monday's morning skate but left before the skate officially started, marking the second consecutive practice that he has left early, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Laine's exit is likely injury-related, though it could also have to do with the trade rumors that have been swirling around the skilled winger of late. Either way, his status for Monday's game against Toronto is in jeopardy, though it's too early to completely rule him out at this time.
Laine (undisclosed) is participating in Monday's morning skate, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Laine's presence in the morning session is encouraging after he exited a few minutes into practice Sunday. Barring a setback, he should be able to play in Toronto on Monday evening.
Laine scored a pair of goals and added an assist Thursday in a 4-3 win over the Flames. He also had four PIM, three shots and three hits.
The fifth-year forward was sensational in this one, getting the Jets on the board in the first period and adding his second tally in overtime. He also drew the second assist on Kyle Connor's game-tying, power-play goal late in the second. After an offseason dominated by speculation about his future with the Jets, Laine made a statement on the ice with his spectacular performance. Laine had 28 goals and 63 points in 68 games last season after opening his NHL career with three straight 30-goal campaigns.
Laine (hand) was not included on the Jets' injury report Friday.
Laine missed the final three games of the season back in August due to a hand injury but appears to be ready for training camp. While the winger has expressed frustrations in the past with being limited to a second-line role, the Jets went out and got him a top-tier center in Paul Stastny this offseason. Given the shortened campaign, Laine figures to miss the 50-point mark for the first time in his career in 2020-21 but should be capable of producing 30-40 points.
Laine suffered a sprained left hand during Game 1 of the Jets' qualifying round series against Calgary and was likely 2-3 weeks away from returning to action when Winnipeg was eliminated Thursday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Based on his timeline, Laine likely wouldn't have been ready for the start of the next round even if the Jets had advanced. The elite scorer failed to hit the 30-goal mark for the first time in his four-year NHL career this campaign but likely would have reached that threshold were it not for the shortened regular season. While he may not be a first-round selection in most fantasy drafts, players shouldn't wait too long before snatching up the Finn in 2020-21.
Laine (wrist) did not take the ice for warmups, indicating he won't play in Thursday's Game 4 against the Flames, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Laine didn't participate in Thursday's morning skate, so it's not surprising to see the Finn out of action. He'll try to be ready for a potential Game 5 on Saturday if the Jets can win without him Thursday. Mathieu Perreault (undisclosed) will be available for Game 4, but it's likely that Jack Roslovic will bump up to Laine's regular spot on the second line.
Laine (wrist) was unavailable for Thursday's game-day skate.
The fact that Laine was unable to practice Thursday ahead of the team's Game 4 clash with Calgary could be an indication he will remain on the shelf come puck drop. If the elite sniper is unable to suit up versus the Flames, Mathieu Perreault (undisclosed) should slot into a top-six role, assuming he is healthy enough to play himself.
Laine (wrist) is not on the ice for warmups and won't play in Tuesday's Game 3 against Calgary, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Laine was unable to suit up in Monday's contest against the Flames, as he seems to still be dealing with the injury he suffered in Game 1. With the Finn sidelined again, Mathieu Perreault will continue to operate on the second line while Andrew Copp takes over as the No. 1 center. It's unclear whether Laine will be able to play in Thursday's pivotal Game 4 clash at this point.
Laine (wrist) won't be in action against Calgary on Monday for Game 2, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Laine's absence will be further compounded by the fact that Mark Scheifele (leg) is also shelved for the Jets. In the winger's stead, Mathieu Perreault will jump up to the second line while Andrew Copp takes over as the No. 1 center. While the team hasn't provided a specific update, it seems unlikely Laine will be ready in time for Tuesday's Game 3.
Laine (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's contest against the Flames, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.
After missing Sunday's practice following his injury in Saturday's tilt with Calgary, it appears that Laine will miss Game 2 on Monday. Unfortunately, there won't be much time for him to bounce back as Game 3 quickly follows on Tuesday. There should be an update on his status before Tuesday's game.
Laine (wrist) did not participate in Sunday's practice.
Laine suffered the injury in Saturday's loss to Calgary. While the extent of the injury is still unknown, his absence from practice is not an encouraging sign. His status for Monday's Game 2 contest against the Flames is still questionable.
Laine left Saturday's game against the Flames with an apparent wrist or hand injury in the third period, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Laine got into a collision with Flames defenseman Mark Giordano, and the two exchanged jabs after the play. Laine then went down the tunnel and was unable to return to the contest. The Finn was the second Jet to get injured Saturday, after Mark Scheifele (leg) exited the contest in the first period. It's unclear if Laine will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday -- if not, Jansen Harkins or Gabriel Bourque may enter the lineup. After the game, head coach Paul Maurice indicated Laine would see a specialist Sunday to assess the injury, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Laine scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Oilers.
Laine gave the Jets a 2-1 lead late in the second period with his 28th goal of the season. He's bidding to reach the 30-goal clip for the fourth time in as man seasons and, with 63 points in 68 games, has a chance to surpass the career-high 70 he had as a sophomore in 2017-18. Laine has points in three straight games, collecting two goals and two assists.
Laine recorded one assist, two shots and one hit versus Arizona on Monday.
Laine appears to have bounced back from his four-game pointless streak with points in his previous two appearances. The Finnish winger has racked up 62 points in 67 contests this year and should be capable of reaching the 70-point mark for the second time in his four-year NHL career.
