  • Jets' Sami Niku: Recalled from AHL Manitoba

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/18) Niku was called up from the minors Monday.

    With Dustin Byfuglien on injured reserve, Niku was the best choice for promotion from the minors to add some depth to the blue line. The 22-year-old has racked up 10 points in his 17 minor-league contests, but is still looking for his first point of the 2018-19 campaign -- though he may not find himself in the lineup versus Edmonton on Monday.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Demoted to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/18) Niku was sent down to AHL Manitoba on Friday.

    Niku averaged a mere 11:33 of ice time in his five NHL games and will now return to the minors, where he tallied five points in 12 outings. The 22-year-old's demotion likely means that Joe Morrow (lower body) is healthy and will be removed from injured reserve prior to Friday's clash with Chicago.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Ascends to big club

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/18) Niku was recalled by the Jets on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    With Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) facing a long-term absence, Niku could have an extended stay with the big club. Niku has five points in 12 games for AHL Manitoba, and his first chance to play with the Jets will be Sunday versus the Devils,

    Jets' Sami Niku: Reassigned to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/28/18) Niku was sent down to AHL Manitoba on Friday.

    After a phenomenal rookie campaign with the Moose, in which he racked up 54 points and won the Eddie Shore Award (Best AHL Defenseman), some expected him to break into the Jets lineup from the start of this new season. Instead, it appears the youngster will log another year in the minors, though he should be the first name on the list of defensive call-ups.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Scores twice Monday in preseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/24/18) Niku scored two goals in Monday's 5-4 overtime preseason win over Calgary.

    Niku managed to get two pucks past starting Flames netminder Mike Smith. The 21-year-old defenseman suited up for just one NHL game last season, and he lit the lamp in that contest as well. If he can hold down a spot with the Jets, Niku's offensive potential is intriguing.
