Jets' Tyler Myers: Second straight two-point game
Myers scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Myers has earned time on the power play recently but both his points came at even strength in this matchup. Myers is hot right now, but he has just eight points in 30 games and will be tough to rely on long term.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Mark Scheifele: Two points with man advantage
Scheifele scored a goal and an assist on the power play in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Scheifele opened scoring in the first period with a shot from the blue line that tipped off a Blackhawks defender's stick and past Cam Ward. Later in the second frame, he recorded a primary assist on Kyle Connor's second goal. Scheifele posted his second straight multi-point game and now has 39 points in 30 games.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Laurent Brossoit: Notches sixth win
Brossoit steered away 32 of 35 shots in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
The Jets were out to a four-goal lead just 1:44 into the second frame, so Brossoit played most of the game with a comfortable lead. The 25-year-old backstop is one of the top backups in the league with a .930 save percentage and 6-1-1 record. His starts come mainly when the Jets play back-to-back games, and he's expected back in goal Friday for another matchup with Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Sends out three assists
Byfuglien dished out three helpers -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Byfuglien spread out his assists with one in each period. The veteran rearguard now has four points in three games since returning from a concussion and 21 points in 24 games this year. He'll look to continue the trend against the Oilers on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kyle Connor: Lights lamp twice
Connor scored two goals and fired five shots on net in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Hats nearly flew on the ice in this outing but Blackhawks goalie Cam Ward made a highlight-reel glove save to deflate Connor's hopes. It's still a solid outing, and the 22-year-old now has 13 goals and 15 assists in 30 games while firing 90 shots on net.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Joe Morrow: Ditches non-contact sweater
Morrow (lower body) was wearing a regular jersey at Tuesday's game-day skate, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Morrow remains on injured reserve and won't be in action against the Blackhawks on Tuesday, but the fact that he has been cleared for contact is certainly a step in the right direction. Once given the green light to play, the Edmonton native will likely have to win his spot in the lineup back from Dmitry Kulikov.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Mathieu Perreault: Good to go against Hawks
Perreault (undisclosed) will be in the lineup versus Chicago on Tuesday, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
Perreault missed Monday's practice session, but will still suit up Tuesday. The Quebec native may be bogged down in a 13-game goal drought, but has racked up four assists in his last five games. The winger should continue to log minutes on the second power-play unit, giving him solid mid-range fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Laurent Brossoit: In goal Tuesday
Brossoit will get the starting nod at home versus Chicago on Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Brossoit will give starter Connor Hellebuyck a night off and will likely get another start either Thursday or Friday against Edmonton or Chicago, respectively. In seven outings this year, the 25-year-old Brossoit is 5-1-1 with a .935 save percentage, which is probably why he is seeing a little extra work.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Joe Morrow: Ruled out Tuesday
Morrow (lower body) will not be in the lineup to face the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.
Morrow -- who was at practice Monday in a non-contact sweater, per Mike Sawatzky of the Winnipeg Free Press -- will miss his seventh straight outing due to his lower-body issue. Once given the all-clear, the blueliner could struggle to earn back his spot in the lineup now that Dmitry Kulikov is back to 100 percent.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Andrew Copp: Unavailable against Hawks
Copp (undisclosed) will miss his fourth straight game against Chicago on Tuesday, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.
Considering Copp is averaging just 12:38 of ice time in a fourth-line role this season, his extended absence is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy owners. Until the Ann Arbor native is given the green light, Mason Appleton should continue to deputize in his stead.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Mathieu Perreault: Questionable Tuesday
Perreault is in doubt for Tuesday's clash with Chicago, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.
Perreault is likely dealing with the same leg injury that nearly caused him to miss Wednesday's matchup with Washington, although the team didn't provide specifics on what might be ailing the 30-year-old. If he is unable to play versus the Blackhawks, Perreault will likely be replaced in the lineup by Nicolas Petan.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Tyler Myers: One of each in win
Myers scored a goal and assisted on another in a 7-1 win over the Flyers on Sunday.
The 6-foot-8 defenseman played a role in Winnipeg's sixth and seventh goals of the game, including tallying the primary assist on Bryan Little's power-play goal. It was a surprising two-point performance for the towering blueliner, moving Myers to a pair of goals and four assists in 29 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Josh Morrissey: Three points in return to lineup
Morrissey finished with three points Sunday, including a pair of assists in a 7-1 win over Philadelphia.
Morrissey gave his team a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal late in the first period. It was just his third goal of the season and 16th of his career. Morrissey had missed his team's past two games with a lower-body injury, but his return undoubtedly made an impact on his team's offensive performance. He'll continue to see a ton of ice time on Winnipeg's top pairing.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Mark Scheifele: Assist machine
Scheifele was buzzing Sunday, picking up three assists in a 7-1 win over the Flyers.
Scheifele was able to tally assists at even strength, on the power play, and with his team down a man. The three helpers give him 19 for the year, to go along with 16 goals. In the middle of what's been a career season, there's not much more that needs to be said about Scheifele's performance to this point. He's been a dominant force all season long.... See More ...

Jets' Patrik Laine: Pair of assists in win
Laine picked up two helpers in a convincing 7-1 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.
The Finnish superstar now has 26 points on the season, but only five assists compared to 21 goals. Prior to his two from this game, Laine's last helper came back on Nov. 16. Up next is a home contest against the Blackhawks, who have the second worst team GAA in the league (3.70).... See More ... See Less
Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers: Makes impact in blowout win
Ehlers picked up a pair of assists in a 7-1 win over the Flyers on Sunday.
One helper came with the man advantage, and Ehlers now has nine goals and 10 assists in 29 games. The Dane is in the midst of another solid campaign with the Jets, occupying a key role in the league's eighth-ranked offense. Up next is a date with Chicago on Tuesday. Last time these two teams met, Ehlers exploded for three goals.... See More ... See Less
