The last time I filed a Jets Injury Report the lone member was Tyler Myers although Marko Dano had just been put on the IR. They have now been joined by rookie sensation Patrik Laine who was concussed in a game against the Sabres:
Tyler Myers* (28 games missed) Lower Body (Day-to-Day) Nov. 11 vs. COL.
Marko Dano* (6 games missed) Lower Body (8 weeks) Dec. 29 vs. CBJ
Patrik Laine (2 games missed) Upper Body (Indefinite) Jan. 7 at BUF.
Total Man Games Lost: 172.
Coach Maurice touched on the status of his tall defenceman in the scrum on January 11th acknowledging that “Tyler came with us on the road to Florida and had to leave on a personal family matter with the full blessing of the Winnipeg Jets and he’s still dealing with that now”. When asked about his health and if he was still progressing the bench boss said “correct”.
In today’s scrum the Jets bench boss was asked if Laine has resumed skating and he indicated “No, no you’ll know it. When he gets back on the ice I’ll tell you. When he gets back on the ice. He’s not at that stage yet.” The follow up question asked if Laine would be making this three game road trip with the Jets and coach Maurice said “he’s not on the trip.”
