The Winnipeg Jets sent Sami Niku down to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League at the beginning of the season to get him up to speed after a nagging groin injury limited him to one preseason game. The conditioning stint was the right move, as it's allowed Niku to play big minutes and get his confidence back. Confidence is something he's got in spades — his play down on the farm proves he's back up to speed. The Jets need to call him up ASAP. Niku's Been Busy After a Slow Start The injury kept Niku — who would have been a lock to make the Jets out of training camp if not for it — out longer than most anticipated. He was largely a spectator in October, playing just three Moose games before being shut down again for five as his team suffered through a six-game losing streak and won just one game all month.

WINNIPEG — Mark Scheifele scored 21 seconds into overtime as the Winnipeg Jets ended the Dallas Stars' winning streak at four games with a 3-2 victory on Sunday. Scheifele got his seventh goal of the season when he went in on a two-on-one with Kyle Connor, but kept the puck himself and beat Anton Khudobin with a low shot. Patrik Laine snapped a 10-game scoring drought with a power-play goal and Andrew Copp also scored at even strength for the Jets (10-7-1). Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves for Winnipeg, which has points in its past five games (4-0-1). Mattias Janmark and Radek Faksa scored for the Stars (8-8-2), who were beginning a four-game road trip.

Over the course of his long career, Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice has never been afraid to bring out his line blender. He did just that prior to Friday's matchup against the Vancouver Canucks, mixing up his power-play personnel in an attempt to create the perfect melange. The bench boss's pureeing paid off, as both units were key to the Jets' 4-1 victory. Meet the New-Look Units With his traditional power play units struggling to find traction so far with just eight goals in their first 16 games, Maurice shook up his units in a big way. He split up Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele, moving the latter to a unit with Kyle Connor, Nikolaj Ehlers, Andrew Copp, and Josh Morrissey. Maurice kept Scheifele and Connor together, but moved Wheeler — who has traditionally played with them on the top PP unit — to his own unit as a centre. Both Scheifele and Wheeler scored in the game at even strength. (Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) (James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY...
