The Winnipeg Jets took a day off to soak in their first round win over the Minnesota Wild and they are back on the ice today to prepare for the winner of the Nashville Predators vs Colorado Avalanche (game 6 is tonight at 6:00 PM CST).
On the ice with the Jets is Nikolaj Ehlers who missed game five of the series with an undisclosed injury. However, the news is not all good as he is wearing a non-contact jersey. I guess there is good reason why he did not play.
Call Ehlers injured, call his situation "a malaise" if you're Paul Maurice, but #27 is also wearing a non contact jersey at today's practice.— Murat (@WPGMurat) April 22, 2018
Also on the injury front, Toby Enstrom is skating with the team as well also in a non-contact jersey. All signs are pointing to him inching closer to return which will be good for the Jets as their depth has already been tested in the playoffs. Hopefully the Preds/Avs series goes to seven games so the Jets injured players can have a few more days to heal.
