The Winnipeg Jets have persevered with a patchwork defence and a bunch of journeymen for most of this season. However, with the number of injuries they have right now, they may not be able to address their battered blue line internally and may have to seek outside assistance. Injuries Abound on Back End Winnipeg Jets defensemen are dropping like Winnipeg's mercury in mid-January. The latest player to go down was Carl Dahlstrom, who left Tuesday's tilt against the Vancouver Canucks with an upper-body injury late in the second period and did not return. Head coach Paul Maurice reported the injury is "not going to be short term." https://twitter.com/WPGMurat/status/1217282428903067648 Dahlstrom will join Nathan Beaulieu — who has had a rotten campaign and went down with his third injury of 2019-20 two weeks ago — and Tucker Poolman — who suffered a lower-body injury Sunday against the Nashville Predators and is out until the end of the Jets' current homestand or...

WINNIPEG — Connor Hellebuyck made 41 saves for his fourth shutout of the season as the Winnipeg Jets ended a six-game losing streak at home with a 4-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. It was the 18th shutout of Hellebuyck's career and gave him the franchise record for shutouts, surpassing Ondrej Pavelec. Hellebuyck earned it with some highlight saves, particularly in the third period. He even tried to shoot the puck down the ice into an empty net, but it hit a Vancouver player. Kyle Connor scored twice, one into an empty net, to give him a team-leading 24 goals for Winnipeg (25-18-4), which was 0-5-1 during its losing skid at Bell MTS Place. Jack Roslovic and Blake Wheeler also had a goal each and Patrik Laine picked up a pair of assists for the Jets, who have won their past 10 games against Vancouver. Winnipeg Jets center Jack Roslovic (Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports) Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced for the Canucks (25-18-4),...

The Winnipeg Jets could potentially be getting two big pieces back within the next month or two, and they need them, badly. Defenceman Dustin Byfuglien was recently reported to have been making progress with his ankle to the point where he needs to test it out on the ice. Related: Jets & Byfuglien Situation Gets Weirder While there is still no imminent sign of his return, if there is any at all, this is positive news that should hopefully lead to some resolution one way or the other sometime soon. https://twitter.com/DarrenDreger/status/1215046000563363845 Jets’ forward Bryan Little was seen wearing a yellow non-contact jersey while skating at practice yesterday and he will join the team on the upcoming road trip starting on Sunday in Chicago. There is still no timetable for his return and he is still expected to be out for quite some time. https://twitter.com/ScottBilleck/status/1216767732219334659 With that said, seeing him skate during practice and...

WINNIPEG — Juuse Saros made 28 saves for his first shutout of the season as the Nashville Predators defeated the Winnipeg Jets 1-0 on Sunday. Kyle Turris scored in the first period for the Predators (21-16-7), who are 3-1-1 in their past five games. It was Winnipeg's sixth straight loss at home (0-5-1). Connor Hellebuyck stopped 31 shots for the Jets (24-18-4), who were starting a three-game homestand at Bell MTS Place, where they last won on Dec. 15. Predators captain Roman Josi had his point streak end at 12 games. He had 20 points (seven goals and 13 assists) during the career-high run, which was the league's longest active streak and a record for a defenceman in the franchise's history. Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi (Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports) Jets forward Andrew Copp had a short-handed breakaway early in the first period, but Saros stopped it in his 22nd game of the season. A Winnipeg turnover in its defensive zone led to Yakov...
