Note II: Jets announced that Dominic Toninato and assistant coach Charlie Huddy placed into NHL’s COVID-19 protocols although the team advised media after morning availability that Toninato’s test was a false positive so it could have been possible that he was still be an option tonight depending on further testing.

Note III: Speaking of players who won’t be available tonight or in any games for a little bit is Jets 2018 2nd rounder David Gustafsson as interim head coach Dave Lowry indicated that the young centre “is coming along but he’s not close to being a player”.
