Tobias Enstrom is hurt. Zach Bogosian is injured. Grant Clitsome is out. None of these injuries are short term. Keaton Ellerby is also injured in St. John's. And now Dustin Byfuglien is back on defense. That is a lot of news to take in all at once.
As per Winnipeg Jets' head coach Paul Maurice, everyone is hurt and Big Buff is back on defense:
Zach Bogosian expected to miss 4-6 weeks with lower body injury, Enstrom to miss rest of month. Clitsome out two weeks. #nhljets #cbcmb— Jeff Hamilton (@jeffkhamilton) December 4, 2014
Looks like Dustin Byfuglien will be moved to defence. "One of our best options" said Maurice. #nhljets #cbcmb— Jeff Hamilton (@jeffkhamilton) December 4, 2014
This comes on the heels of the Winnipeg Jets playing some mighty fine hockey - largely due to some quality play from their top nine forwards. The top nine will be shaken up be the absence of Dustin Byfuglien.
Practise underway for @NHLJets: Ladd-Galiardi-Wheeler Kane-Perreault-Frolik Lowry-Scheifele-Halischuk Peluso-Slater-Thorburn No Little— Brian Munz (@BrianMunzTSN) December 4, 2014
Little will surely sub in for Galiardi, but that looks like a dog's breakfast. Share your fears below.
