EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Winnipeg Jets will return left wing Evander Kane and defensemen Mark Stuart and Toby Enstrom to the lineup when they play the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday at Staples Center.
Jets coach Paul Maurice told reporters the three will play. Kane, who has 15 points in 26 games, has missed five games. Enstrom has missed 19 games and Stuart nine, respectively. Each had a lower-body injury. Enstrom leads the Jets in ice time (25:07). It will be his first game since Nov. 23.
Their returns come at a good time because Winnipeg had its seven-game road point streak (5-0-2) end Thursday at the Arizona Coyotes.
It was unclear if Kings center Mike Richards would be scratched. The Kings did not do line rushes and the regulars came off the ice at different times. Center Andy Andreoff stayed out for extra work, along with injured defenseman Robyn Regehr.
