Jets return Scheifele to junior team

For the second year in a row, forward Mark Scheifele hasn't been able to stick with the Winnipeg Jets after an early-season audition.

The Jets on Wednesday announced they have reassigned the seventh pick in the 2011 NHL Draft to the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League.

The 19-year-old played in four games with the Jets this season and failed to register a point. He had been a healthy scratch in five of the Jets' past six games.

Last season as an 18-year-old, Scheifele had one goal in seven games before he was returned to juniors. Reassigning Scheifele before he has played his sixth game this season means the first year of his entry-level contract has yet to take effect.

In 30 games with Barrie this season, Scheifele has 22 goals and 27 assists.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
