Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: In goal versus Flames
Hellebuyck will tend the twine for Wednesday's road game in Calgary, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Hellebuyck appears to have shaken off his inconsistent start to the 2018-19 campaign, as he is riding a four-game winning streak in which he posted a .933 save percentage. If the 25-year-old netminder can continue stringing together victories, he could challenge his career high from last season (44) and find himself in contention for the Vezina Trophy again....

Jets' Kristian Vesalainen: Returned to minors
Vesalainen was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Tuesday, Jim Toth of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
With his demotion, speculation will no doubt start to grow regarding whether Vesalainen will utilize the release clause in his contract to head overseas and play in the KHL. The winger has tallied eight points in as many games for the Moose, but may not be happy playing in North America's No. 2 league.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Dustin Byfuglien: Picks up helper Monday
Byfuglien notched an assist versus Vancouver on Monday.
Despite being stuck in an eight-game goal drought, Byfuglien has tallied eight helpers during that stretch. The Minnesota native's inability to find the back of the net certainly isn't from a lack of trying, as he has tallied 27 shots during his slump. A matchup with Calgary's subpar penalty kill (75.8 percent) Wednesday could be what the blueliner needs to tickle the twine.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Jacob Trouba: Snags assist versus Canucks
Trouba garnered a helper in Monday's 6-3 win over Vancouver.
Trouba -- who remains bogged down in a 10-game goalless streak -- is on pace for a career year that would see him crack the 30-point mark for just the second time. The Michigan native's inconsistent role on the power play limits his fantasy value, yet he remains a decent mid-range option.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Tyler Myers: Garners helper versus Vancouver
Myers ended his 10-game pointless streak with an assist against the Canucks on Monday.
Myers is off to a slow start this season (three points in 19 games) coming off his 36-point 2017-18 campaign. The blueliner's decreased productivity is likely related to the fact that he is logging just 18:34 of ice time per game, which is nearly three minutes less than last year (21:26).... See More ...

Jets' Mark Scheifele: Garners goal, assist Monday
Scheifele notched a goal and an assist versus the Canucks on Monday.
It was the third multi-point game for Scheifele in his last five outings for a total of nine points. The All-Star center is on pace to break his 2016-17 career-best 82 points, but will need to stay healthy this year to get there. The Ontario native is currently logging a career-high 22:22 of ice time this season, which includes 3:09 with the man advantage, and should have ample opportunity to find the back of the net on a night-to-night basis....

Jets' Bryan Little: Tallies goal, assist versus Canucks
Little registered a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-3 victory over Vancouver.
Little shook off a nine-game goal drought with his tally while recording just his second multipoint outing of the year. Despite logging 2:59 of ice time with the man advantage, the center failed to secure either of his two points on the power play.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Kyle Connor: Erupts with four points
Connor went off Monday, recording a power-play goal and three assists in a 6-3 road win over the Canucks.
The Michigan native is on an incredible tear, as he's registered nine points over an active five-game point streak. Connor has obvious chemistry with Patrik Laine -- a third-year winger with six hat tricks to his name -- so fantasy owners should expect him to continue chugging along at a point-per-game pace, especially with scoring way up across the league....

Jets' Patrik Laine: Dials in another hat trick
Laine recorded his second hat trick of the season in Monday's 6-3 road win over the Canucks.
Laine already has six NHL hat tricks before his 21st birthday. The Finnish phenom put three goals on the board against the Panthers in his home country on Nov. 1 -- since then, he's scored five times to go along with a helper over six games. The scary part is that Laine may only be scratching the surface of his potential.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: Not much pressure from Canucks
Hellebuyck allowed three goals on 25 shots in Monday's 6-3 road win over the Canucks.
It wasn't the strongest performance from Hellebuyck, but given that the Jets managed a plus-23 shot differential, it was only fitting that he'd emerge the victor in this battle between two Canadian clubs. Winnipeg's chief netminder is now 9-5-1 on the season and needs just eight more wins for 100 in his career.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Connor Hellebuyck: In goal against Canucks
Hellebuyck will tend the twine in Monday's matchup with Vancouver, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Hellebuyck is riding a three-game winning streak in which he posted a 1.67 GAA. The Michigan-born netminder was given the day off against Buffalo on Friday and should be well-rested for his clash with a Canucks squad that is averaging a mere 28.8 shots (fourth fewest in the league)....

Jets' Kyle Connor: Extends point streak to four games
Connor scored a goal on four shots with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Sabres.
He also did his part during the shootout, beating Carter Hutton in the fifth round, only for the Jets to eventually fall in the seventh. Connor now has a four-game point streak going, scoring three goals and five points over that stretch, and his nine goals and 16 points in 18 games to begin the season puts the 21-year-old well on pace to shatter the 57 points he registered in his breakout 2017-18....

Jets' Laurent Brossoit: Makes 31 stops in shootout loss
Brossoit stopped 31 of 32 shots, but only four of seven attempts in the shootout, during Friday's 2-1 loss to the Sabres.
Making just his fourth start of the season, Brossoit allowed only a power-play goal to Jeff Skinner during regulation, but still took his first loss after getting beaten high on the glove side by Conor Sheary in the seventh round of the shootout. The 25-year-old netminder has been impressive in his limited action, posting a .959 save percentage so far, but it might take an injury to Connor Hellebuyck before Brossoit sees a significant increase in his workload....

Jets' Kristian Vesalainen: Jumps to big club
Vesalainen was recalled by the Jets on Friday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.
Vesalainen was considering heading back to Europe to play in the KHL since he has an out clause in his NHL contract, but he'll stick now that he's received the call-up. According to Orlesky, the 19-year-old winger can still head to Europe if he's reassigned. A first-round pick in 2017, Vesalainen has three goals and eight points with AHL Manitoba this year. His next chance to play with the Jets could be Friday against the Sabres, and it appears he'll join the team for its upcoming road trip starting Monday in Vancouver.... See More ... See Less
