WINNIPEG - Dustin Byfuglien returns to the line-up as the Winnipeg Jets look for their third win in a row tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Byfuglien has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury, something he said started bothering him in training camp.
"We tried taking care of it as much as possible, and we did the right thing and got on it early," said Byfuglien. "It's definitely nothing big, but it's something that can drag on for a long time. If you take care of it early, you won't lose much time."
The 6'5" defenceman was paired with Toby Enstrom at today's morning skate, a pairing head coach Paul Maurice has liked in the past.
"He and Toby have played some real fine hockey together for us so we're hoping that pairing can match it again," said Maurice. "He's such a force. We miss him on the back end on that power play. That shot threat and the movement that group has, we felt we've missed him there."
