Scheifele, who remains scoreless through three games split between Winnipeg's third and fourth lines will be replaced with Kyle Wellwood who is being re-inserted into tonight's line-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
It appears as though the writing is on the wall for young Scheifele, who could be returned to Barrie at a moments notice.
What's unfortunate is how this process is being drawn out by the Jets', as playing time for Scheifele somewhere -- anywhere -- would be better for him than eating popcorn in the pressbox.
Whether or not this plan has been hatched to extend his trial period remains unseen.
