It's been previously discussed on the blog, but forward Kyle Wellwood will miss the remainder of the season with a broken foot. He will join teammate Tanner Glass - who also broke his foot last Friday - on LTIR. [WFP]

With Wellwood now out for the next three regular season games, Patrice Cormier will draw back into the Jets line-up after being recalled from St. John's yesterday morning. []

Mark Chipman doesn't want Jets fans to think there will be any quick fixes that will vault the team into the NHL's upper echelon of talent any time soon: "Since the lockout, if you look at the teams that have had success and won -- Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, they build from within. The best example for us is Nashville. They draft well and develop and provide a stable environment that fosters winning. They're the best example for us. Now that they're close, they're trying to make a few tweaks to go after the Cup. The Nashville example is very fitting for us." [WFP]

Though it will be a short month for Jets games, Bryan Little is your poster-boy for April. []

Congrats to Mark Scheifele, Ivan Telegin and the rest of the Barrie Colts as they move past the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors and into the second round of the OHL playoffs after last night's 3-2 overtime win. Scheifele, who was injured in Game 5, finished with two assists on the night. Telegin also recorded an assist. [Barrie Examiner]
