  • Jets' Sami Niku: Pots first goal of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/19) Niku scored a goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He opened the scoring 2:21 into the first period with his first goal of the season, and just his second in 19 career NHL games. Niku has some fantasy upside, scoring 19 goals and 66 points in 96 games for AHL Manitoba since coming to North America from Finland, but the 22-year-old's role remains uncertain once the Jets' blue line gets healthier.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Bumps up a rank

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/19) The Jets recalled Niku from AHL Manitoba on Friday, Jim Toth of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

    With Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) and Joe Morrow (lower body) nursing injuries, Niku was brought up in case both are unable to play Saturday versus the Senators. Niku has played 11 games with the Jets this season and recorded two assists, but he's compiled 12 points in 20 AHL outings. He'll likely slot into the third pairing if he draws in.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Sent back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/19) The Jets reassigned Niku to AHL Manitoba on Tuesday.

    After being recalled from the AHL on Jan. 27, Niku appeared in just one game for Winnipeg before serving as a healthy scratch for the past seven contests. He'll benefit from some consistent ice time with the move back to Manitoba.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Recalled by Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/19) Niku was called up from AHL Manitoba on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old has played sparingly during his time with the Jets, and will most likely be sent down once Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) is given the green light to return.

    Jets' Sami Niku: Shuffles down to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/19) The Jets assigned Niku to AHL Manitoba on Sunday.

    The Jets are off until Jan. 28, so Niku is being sent down to keep him on the ice. Whether he's recalled after the break depends on the statuses of Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) and Ben Chiarot (lower body). The 22-year-old has two points in 10 games with Winnipeg this year, and he's managing just 12:22 TOI, which is quite low for a defenseman.
