Winnipeg Jets Head Coach Paul Maurice announced this morning that Gabriel Bourque would miss the next four weeks with a lower body injury.

It is not clear when the injury occurred, but Bourque, 29, only had one shift in the third period, a 27-second effort before leaving the ice with 17:01 to go. Bourque is riding a three game point streak, and has three points in 16 games with the Jets so far this year. His assist on Tuesday brought him to 100 career points since joining the league in 2011.

In positive injury news, Tucker Poolman is expected to return to the lineup after missing Tuesday night’s game with migraines.
