At the Rink: Ducks at Jets

WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Jets will have left wing Evander Kane back in their lineup when they host the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Kane served a two-game suspension this week for his hit from behind on Anaheim defenseman Clayton Stoner at MTS Centre on Dec. 7. The suspension was the first of Kane’s career.

Kane, who has four goals this season, will skate with center Adam Lowry and right wing Matt Halischuk against the Ducks, who won their sixth consecutive game 4-2 against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

At the Rink: Avalanche at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets will have a new look on defense when they host the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Coach Paul Maurice disclosed three significant injuries to the Winnipeg defense corps after practice Thursday that included the team's top pairing.

Defenseman Zach Bogosian (lower body) will be out 4-6 weeks and was placed on injured reserve. It is thought that Bogosian injured his foot blocking a shot in the Jets' 3-2 overtime win against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

Toby Enstrom, Bogosian's partner on the Jets' top pairing, already had missed the past four games with a lower-body injury before Maurice announced that he will be out until the end of December.

Defenseman Grant Clitsome (undisclosed) also did not dress for the game Wednesday and will be out for a minimum of two weeks, according to Maurice.

At the Rink: Oilers at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Edmonton Oilers will attempt to grab their first win in 11 games Wednesday when they visit the Winnipeg Jets.

The Oilers have not won since Nov. 9, going 0-7-3 in that span. Coach Dallas Eakins unveiled a new look to the lineup for Wednesday in an attempt to shake up his dressing room.

Right wing Tyler Pitlick, who played his first NHL game of the season Monday in a 5-2 home loss against the Arizona Coyotes, will move to Edmonton's top line, with left wing Taylor Hall and center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

"[Pitlick] brought a lot of what we need right now," Eakins said after the Edmonton morning skate. "We've been asking our forwards to play a grittier game, a get-to-the-net game, and we've restructured the lines a little bit [and] we think will help us in a number of different ways."

At the Rink: Blues at Jets

WINNIPEG – The St. Louis Blues will have an unlikely addition to their injury list when they finish their four-game road trip against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.

Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester will miss the game with a lower-body injury sustained in a 3-2 road win against the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. Bouwmeester did not skate in the pregame warm-up at MTS Centre and his streak of 737 consecutive games played will end.

Bouwmeester had not missed a game since the 2003-04 season when he was with the Florida Panthers.

At the Rink: Red Wings at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Detroit Red Wings will have a bit of a new look to their roster when they visit the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

Before the morning skate Thursday, the Red Wings lost center Andrej Nestrasil on waivers to the Carolina Hurricanes. The 23-year-old center had two assists in 13 games with Detroit this season, but the Red Wings placed him on waivers Wednesday after making him a healthy scratch in five of the past eight games.

"I'm not certain, but I heard that there was a whole bunch of teams that tried to claim him," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "[Nestrasil] is a great kid. I wish him well. If he can fit in and help [Carolina] and play every night, that's really good for him."

At the Rink: Devils at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets return home for a visit from the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday, and the teams will have crucial lineup decisions to make.

The status of Devils center Adam Henrique (lower body) and Jets center Mark Scheifele (knee) remain murky, but each player skated Tuesday and is likely to dress for the game.

The Devils had an optional morning skate Tuesday, but Henrique, who has missed six consecutive games, participated. He has not played since Nov. 4. To accommodate Henrique’s possible return, right wing Jordin Tootoo likely will be a healthy scratch against Winnipeg as the Devils begin a four-game road trip.

"I feel good," Henrique said after the morning skate. "Hopefully I play [Tuesday]. It will just be a game-time decision. But I feel good. It's the best that I've felt in the past week the last couple of days. We'll make the decision [Tuesday] and go from there."

At the Rink: Penguins at Jets

WINNIPEG --The top question for the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday will be how to stop the Pittsburgh Penguins power play.

The Penguins have won five consecutive games and have the NHL's best power play. Pittsburgh is 41.3 percent with the man advantage and 42.9 percent on the road. The Penguins have scored power-play goals in their past five games, going 11-for 24.

Adding to the equation will be the Jets' tendency toward penalty trouble this season. Winnipeg has allowed the third-most power plays in the League this season. The Jets are tied for fourth on the penalty kill and have not allowed a power-play goal in their past four games (12-for-12), but the message inside the dressing room Thursday was to avoid the penalty box.

"We [must avoid] penalties," Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian said. "Penalties happen, but the best way to kill penalties is to not take them."

At the Rink: Predators at Jets

WINNIPEG – The Nashville Predators will continue their season-high six-game road trip Tuesday when they visit the Winnipeg Jets.

The Predators are 2-1-0 on the journey after a 3-1 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

"This [trip] came at a good time for us," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "Getting on the road can go either way. If you're winning and finding some success, then it can be a really positive experience. It can bring a team together, especially at the beginning of the year."

Laviolette will start goaltender Carter Hutton for the second time this season. Hutton lost a 2-1 overtime decision against the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 18 in his only game to date. Hutton played 40 games last season for Nashville, going 20-11-4 with a 2.62 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.

At the Rink: Lightning at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Tampa Bay Lightning begin to wind down a five-game road trip when they visit the Winnipeg Jets on Friday at MTS Centre.

The Lightning have had two days off after splitting two games in Alberta, a loss against the Edmonton Oilers followed by an overtime win against the Calgary Flames. After facing Winnipeg, the Lightning end their trip Saturday at the Minnesota Wild.

"We've still got a lot of work to do," Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said. "Certain areas [of focus] have kind of slipped in certain periods of games, but for the most part I think we would have taken that at the beginning of the [season]. But we've got to finish off this road trip. It has been pretty good so far."

At the Rink: Hurricanes at Jets

WINNIPEG -- The reinforcements are beginning to arrive for the Carolina Hurricanes, who continue a five-game road trip Tuesday against the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre.

Left wing Jeff Skinner will make his season debut for the Hurricanes after sustaining a concussion in the final preseason game, Oct. 5, and play on a line with center Victor Rask and right wing Elias Lindholm.

"I hope that I can help the guys get it done," Skinner said. "For me coming back, I'm just going to try to keep it simple. I think that as a team we've been getting better. Just keep building on the good things in our game and hopefully I can add to that. It's a big game because it could be the start of a big road trip for us."

Defenseman Andrej Sekera (upper body) will return to the lineup after a one-game absence that was the result of a collision Oct. 14 against the Buffalo Sabres.

"It's just good to get some guys back," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. "Instead of calling up a guy from Charlotte [American Hockey League], we're able to put in a guy that is a proven 30-goal scorer."

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
