The Jets (41-19-10) are second in the Central Division, eight points behind the Nashville Predators, entering their home game against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; TSN3, NBCSCH, NHL.TV).

Winnipeg's regular season ends April 7, and the playoffs begin April 11.

Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson is out indefinitely with a concussion sustained in a 3-1 loss at Nashville on Tuesday.
