  • Jets' Logan Stanley: Exits Friday's game

    Stanley (lower body) will not return to Friday's contest against Chicago.

    Stanley saw just 3:03 of ice time before leaving the game. The 24-year-old blueliner tallied his first point of the season during Thursday's win against St. Louis. He missed 18 games with a foot injury and it's unclear if this injury is related.

  • Jets' Saku Maenalanen: Will miss Friday's game

    Maenalanen (upper body) won't play Friday against Chicago, per Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site.

    Maenalanen suffered the injury during Thursday's 5-2 victory over St. Louis. He has four goals and six points in 25 contests this season. Sam Gagner is drawing into the lineup.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Tending twine Friday

    Rittich will get the starting nod in Chicago on Friday, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Rittich yielded four goals on 26 shots in a loss against Columbus on Dec. 2. The 30-year-old is now 3-2-0 with a pedestrian 3.07 GAA and .881 save percentage. He'll continue to get little work as Connor Hellebuyck's primary backup.

  • Jets' Logan Stanley: Grabs helper in return

    Stanley logged an assist, five hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Stanley missed 18 games with a broken foot. This was just his sixth appearance of the campaign, which saw him log a season-high 17:59 of ice time on the third period. The helper was also his first point of the year, to go with 20 hits, eight blocked shots, four shots on net and six PIM. He shouldn't be expected to put up much offense even if his ice time ticks upward over the rest of the year.

  • Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Pockets assist Thursday

    DeMelo posted an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    DeMelo has four helpers in seven games since returning from an upper-body injury. The defenseman sees time on the top pairing, but he's mostly a stay-at-home type of blueliner. The 29-year-old is up to six helpers, 22 shots on net, 40 hits, 20 blocked shots, six PIM and a plus-3 rating in 21 appearances.

  • Jets' Mikey Eyssimont: Getting top-six look

    Eyssimont registered an assist, two shots on goal, five hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Eyssimont filled in on the second line and logged a career-high 15:30 of ice time Thursday. He snapped a four-game point drought with the helper, which came on a Kyle Connor goal early in the second period. Eyssimont has a goal, three assists, 18 shots on net, 23 hits, seven PIM and a plus-8 rating through 12 contests. He could continue to compete for top-six minutes while both Nikolaj Ehlers (lower body) and Mason Appleton (wrist) are out of action.

  • Jets' Josh Morrissey: Record helper

    Morrissey generated an assist, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Morrissey set up the second of Pierre-Luc Dubois' two goals in the game. The 27-year-old Morrissey has assists in three straight games, and he's yet to be held off the scoresheet in consecutive contests this season. The strong start to the campaign has him at five tallies, 23 helpers, 42 shots on net, a plus-9 rating, 26 hits and 39 blocked shots through 25 appearances.

  • Jets' Neal Pionk: Notches pair of helpers

    Pionk produced two assists and four blocked shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Pionk had been in quite the rut, going nine games without a point entering Thursday. He helped out on goals by Kyle Connor and Cole Perfetti to end the skid. Pionk is still a solid source of physical play even when his offense dries up. The 27-year-old defenseman has four goals, nine helpers, 45 shots on net, 58 hits, 42 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 25 contests.

  • Jets' Mark Scheifele: Reaches 600-point milestone

    Scheifele registered a pair of assists in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    In his 667th game -- all with the Jets -- Scheifele reached the 600-point milestone for his career. He's the third player to reach that mark in Thrashers/Jets franchise history, joining Ilya Kovalchuk (615) and the team's active scoring leader, Blake Wheeler (781), in the exclusive club. Scheifele has racked up five goals and four assists in his last six outings to give him 23 points, 68 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 25 contests this season.

  • Jets' Cole Perfetti: Fills empty cage

    Perfetti scored an empty-net goal on three shots, went plus-2 and added two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Perfetti has two goals and six assists over his last seven games, with just one scoreless outing in that span. The 20-year-old continues to be trusted with top-six minutes in what will count as his rookie year. He's up to five goals, 17 points, 47 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 25 contests, and he also sees time on the second power-play unit, where he's earned three assists.

  • Jets' Kyle Connor: Scores again Thursday

    Connor scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Connor struck just 27 seconds into the second period to put the Jets up 2-0. He's been in a groove lately with six goals and six helpers over his last eight contests. The winger had a slow start to the campaign, but he's been as good as ever since November started. He's now at 11 goals, 27 points, 88 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 25 appearances.

  • Jets' Blake Wheeler: Earns one of each

    Wheeler scored a power-play goal on three shots and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Wheeler's second-period tally stood as the game-winner, and he set up Cole Perfetti for an empty-netter. This was Wheeler's fifth multi-point effort in his last nine contests, a span in which he's earned four goals and 10 helpers. The 36-year-old's offense has bounced back greatly under head coach Rick Bowness -- Wheeler now has eight goals, 16 helpers, 52 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 25 outings.

  • Jets' Pierre-Luc Dubois: Leads offense in win

    Dubois scored twice and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Dubois has a seven-game point streak, during which he's accumulated five goals and seven helpers. His last two efforts have seen him rack up three points each time. The 24-year-old is up to 13 goals, 28 points (11 on the power play), 69 shots on net, 29 hits and a minus-2 rating through 25 contests overall. He's never sustained a point-per-game pace for a whole season, and his current 18.8 shooting percentage is by far a career high.

  • Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: No trouble with Blues

    Hellebuyck allowed two goals on 31 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Hellebuyck won his sixth straight game, and he's allowed two or fewer goals in five of those outings. The Jets' defense was a little stingier than usual, as he's faced 40-plus shots three times during his winning streak, but the extra workload isn't bothering him. The 29-year-old looks like one of the best goalies in the league so far with a 14-5-1 record, a 2.24 GAA and a .932 save percentage through 20 starts. Expect David Rittich to start the second half of a back-to-back when the Jets visit the Blackhawks on Friday.

  • Jets' Saku Maenalanen: Exits game with upper-body injury

    Maenalanen left Thursday's game against St. Louis because of an upper-body injury and won't return.

    Maenalanen only logged 1:11 of ice time Thursday. He presumably sustained the injury when he absorbed a hit from St. Louis' Niko Mikkola, and was holding his right arm before he departed, per Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet. Maenalanen has four goals and six points in 25 contests this season.

  • Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: Starting in St. Louis

    Hellebuyck will defend the visiting blue paint against St. Louis on Thursday, Jeff Hamilton of the Winnipeg News reports.

    Hellebuyck was outstanding Tuesday in garnering his 400th career win, as he turned aside 39 shots in a 5-2 win over Florida. Hellebuyck has returned to his old self this season after four average years, as he is 13-5-1 with a 2.26 GAA and .932 save percentage along with three shutouts. He will face the Blues, who are averaging 3.08 goals per game.

  • Jets' Logan Stanley: Expected to return Thursday

    Stanley (foot) is expected to return to the lineup Thursday, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Stanley has missed the last 18 games with a slight foot fracture and coach Rick Bowness said that Stanley is expected to be a go Thursday against St. Louis. Stanley was pointless in five games before his injury Oct. 24, against the Blues.
