Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice lists Patrik Laine as doubtful for re-match with Senators

The Jets sniper doesn’t seem likely for tomorrow’s game.

Jets sniper Patrik Laine, who is dealing with an upper-body injury which kept him out of the last two games, was one of the players who skated today according to Kyle Bukauskas of Sportsnet although it wasn’t a long time on the ice for him.  Here is what he said about number 29:

“Laine was out there for just over 10min, took part in the 1st drill and left midway through it. Had little to no power in his shooting as he continues to deal with an upper-body injury”
