The Winnipeg Jets announced this morning that they have called up defenceman Cameron Schilling from the Manitoba Moose of the AHL, ahead of their two game road trip.

The move would indicate that Ben Chiarot will not be able to participate for at least the first of the two games, and gives the Jets seven defenders on the road. Chiarot missed Tuesday’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights with a lower-body injury. The defender has four goals and four assists in 45 games this season with the Jets.

Schilling has appeared in 27 games for the Manitoba Moose so far this year, scoring once and adding nine assists, and currently is riding a three game point streak (one goal, two assists). The 30-year-old appeared in four games for the Jets earlier this season, notching his first career NHL point (an assist) on November 29th against Chicago.
