Today during media availability interim head coach Dave Lowry was asked for an update on Ehlers and how soon he could be skating with the team in a non-contact uniform. This is what he had to say:

“He won’t be with the group for awhile. My understanding is he is still a long ways away. That might be two weeks that might be a month, I can’t give you a definitive day. He went home he could do stuff away. He comes back now we can ramp up and we will see where he is.”

Tough news for a Jets team that could use his goal scoring and ability to gain the zone.
