Jets' Ivan Telegin: Looking for NHL deal
Telegin won't be under contract in the KHL next season and is hoping to land an NHL contract, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
Telegin's rights are currently held by Winnipeg after the club selected him in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Draft, but that will change July 1 when he is free to sign with any team. Assuming Winnipeg can come to terms with restricted free agents Kyle Connor and Andrew Copp, it won't have a lot of room on the left wing for Telegin. One option for the organization to avoid losing the Russian for nothing would be to trade away his rights if it becomes clear a deal can't be worked out.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Laurent Brossoit: Dealt with hamstring issue
Brossoit clarified that his late-season injury was to his hamstring, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Brossoit may have missed a few starts at the end of the regular season due to his injury, but the club was still trying to lock in its spot in the playoffs and may have gone with starter Connor Hellebuyck anyway. After posting a 13-6-2 record with one shutout and a .925 save percentage in 21 appearances, Brossoit could earn a little extra work in 2019-20, but will remain the No. 2 option behind Hellebuyck....

Jets' Josh Morrissey: Looking ahead to 2019-20
Morrissey missed 20 games due to a shoulder injury, but is expected to be 100 percent for training camp, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports reports.
Morrissey shook off any lingering issues with his shoulder in order to suit up in the postseason. In six matchups with the Blues, the defenseman logged 19:08 of ice time per game and tallied one assist, eight shots and 12 blocks. Even with the injury, the Calgary native set career highs in assists (25), points (31) and average ice time (22:24) and should push for the 40-point mark in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Brandon Tanev: Underwent finger surgery
Tanev had surgery on his finger prior to the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Tanev's issue clearly was something he couldn't play through, as he averaged 13:45 of ice time in the postseason. The Toronto native set career highs in goals (14), assists (15) and shots (127) this year and figures to be an intriguing option if he reaches free agency this summer. Where the winger lands will significantly impact his fantasy value, considering he could be a second- or third-line guy depending on the rest of the roster.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Injury comes to light
Ehlers was playing through a broken foot in the playoffs, and won't play in the upcoming IIHF World Championship, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
The injury stemmed from a play in which Ehlers blocked a shot from the Blues' Colton Parayko in Game 5. The 23-year-old experienced his lowest career point total in his fourth full season, racking up just 37 points in 62 games. Ehlers will likely use the offseason to train and get healthy, before he enters 2019-20 on the second year of his contract extension.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Patrik Laine: Sitting out Worlds
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.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Mark Scheifele: Won't play at Worlds
Scheifele will not be heading to Slovakia for the 2019 IIHF World Championship, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Scheifele set new career highs this season in goals (38), points (84) and power-play points (23), but couldn't prevent his team from falling in the first round of the playoffs. With two 80-plus point campaigns in his last three seasons, and the other being cut short by injury, there is little reason to doubt the center will get back to the 80-point mark in 2019-20....

Jets' Blake Wheeler: Skipping Worlds
Wheeler won't attend the 2019 IIHF World Championship, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Wheeler was clearly frustrated by the club's first-round exit based on his post-game comments to TSN, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him bow out of Worlds in order to focus on the offseason. The winger matched his 2017-18 numbers with a second straight 90-plus point campaign and should be capable of reaching that threshold again next year.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: Loses again, ending Jets' season
Hellebuyck stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's 3-2 Game 6 loss to St.Louis. With the win, the Blues advance to the second round of the 2018-19 playoffs.
Hellebuyck put his team behind the eight-ball early Saturday, allowing a weak goal to beat him just 23 seconds into the game. Winnipeg's goaltender played well from there and stood little chance on the other two goals that beat him, but ultimately, Hellebuyck's effort wasn't good enough to keep his team's season alive. As a result, Winnipeg's offseason will kick off far earlier than anticipated, and big changes could be forthcoming following this disappointing crash landing out of the postseason.... See More ...

Jets' Bryan Little: Shorthanded hero
Little scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 3-2 Game 6 loss to the Blues.
The Jets' forward scored with 38 seconds remaining in regulation to cut St. Louis' lead to a single goal, but that would be as close as Little and the Jets would get in what was an elimination game for the visitors. The 31-year-old finishes the playoffs with a goal and two assists in six games.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Big effort not enough
Byfuglien scored a goal and tallied an assist Saturday in a 3-2 Game 6 loss to St. Louis, ending the Jets' 2018-19 season.
Byfuglien came to play Saturday, finishing with a pair of points (one coming shorthanded), but it ultimately wasn't enough to keep the Jets' season alive. The larger-than-life blueliner finishes his playoffs having found the scoresheet eight times in six games.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Will play for Game 6
Ehlers (lower body) was on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 6 clash with St. Louis, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Ehlers was injured in Game 5 on Thursday when he blocked a shot by the Blues' Colton Parayko, but appears to be ready to go. The winger will slot into his usual second-line role with Patrik Laine, which bolsters his fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: Will have to sustain success on road
Hellebuyck will defend the cage for Game 6 against the Blues, who are playing host to the contest, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Oddly enough, Hellebuyck has won both road games in this series, while averaging three goals allowed in the other three contests in front of the home crowd. Still, Winnipeg's go-to netminder has performed reasonably well in the postseason in his young career, with a .920 save percentage between 22 starts besting his progressive regular-season average (.915)....

Jets' Adam Lowry: Tickles twine in Game 5
Lowry tallied a goal in Thursday's 3-2 Game 5 defeat to the Blues.
Lowry ended a seven-game goal drought with his first marker of the postseason. The winger figures to continue filling a bottom-six role, but should provide depth scoring and decent mid-range fantasy value the rest of the playoffs.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kevin Hayes: Scores in Game 5 defeat
Hayes found the back of the net in Thursday's Game 5 loss to St. Louis.
Hayes has two goals in five playoff contests while averaging just 11:15 of ice time. The center also put an impressive five shots on goal Thursday, giving him nine in his last three contests. The Massachusetts native has seen himself slip to a bottom-six role in favor of Bryan Little, which limits Hayes' chances of racking up points.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Game-time call Saturday
Ehlers (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 6 matchup with St. Louis, per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun.
Ehlers didn't skate Friday and is not slated to Saturday, but coach Paul Maurice indicated that he is not expecting to make any lineup changes for Game 6. The winger is still looking for his first postseason point, despite having put 16 shots on goal in the last five contests. If Ehlers were to miss Saturday's clash with the Blues, it would likely be Par Lindholm who would slot into the lineup.... See More ... See Less
