The Winnipeg Jets will be without center Mark Scheifele for six-to-eight weeks. Scheifele is dealing with an upper-body injury.
He was injured midway through the second period on Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers. After taking a light bump from Oilers defenseman Brandon Davidson, Scheifele crashed badly into the boards.
He remained on the ice for several minutes after being injured. He did not return after being injured.
Scheifele, who has been with the Jets for the past seven seasons, has appeared in 38 games this season. He has 15 goals and 23 assists for 38 points. He also has an 8 +/- and 10 penalties in minutes.
He has eight even-strength goals, six power play goals, one short-handed goals and two game winning goals. He’s averaging 21 minutes of ice time per game.
In his last five games, Scheifele has a goal and two assists. The goal came against the St. Louis Blues on December 17th, 2017.
The Jets are 21-11-6 this season. He’s the third Jets player to be out with an injury, as he joins Toby Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien, who are both dealing with lower-body injuries.
Byfuglien is expected to be back with the team in January after being on injured reserve since December 10th. Enstrom was slated to miss eight weeks of action after suffering his lower body injury on November 19th.
