Skate news:

We saw, courtesy of the Jets pictures from practice, Pierre-Luc Dubois in a regular uniform for practice which is a good sign after he has missed a few days with tightness.

Health update:

Jets bench boss Paul Maurice said that Pierre-Luc Dubois is not expected to be a player in tomorrow’s game against the Oilers although he did qualify his comments by indicating that the Dubois would be looked at by the training staff following skate. He added that Nate Thompson is also making progress although he too isn’t likely to play tomorrow night based on the way the 4th line played on Monday.
