GOALS: 3 | ASST: 4 | PTS: 7
SOG: 25 | +/-: 0
After Byfuglien did not take part in the morning skate, coach Claude Noel said a determination on Byfuglien's status would be made later, but the defenseman did not take part in pregame warmups.
"He aggravated something previous to the morning skate," Noel said.
Byfuglien played a team-high 28:26 of ice time in the Jets' 4-3 loss at Montreal on Tuesday. The Jets did not practice on Wednesday.
Byfuglien is tied for the team scoring lead with Evander Kane and
Tobias Enstrom with seven points.
