The Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild are playing tonight and it appears that the Jets have moved onto playing A Guy for most of their forward lines. This is because of the previously mentioned injuries which have mostly affected their scoring forwards leaving them with a huge void up front. According to head coach Rick Bowness, Saku Manalaenen will be the first to return which really does not help the Jets out scoring wise because they are needing players like Nikolaj Ehlers to return more than bottom six forwards. Sorry gang.

Now for the Wild, they are without Jacob Middleton who is out with illness. Other than that, it seems like they don’t have any other major injury concerns, so expect this to be another tough game for the Jets. It is thought that Marc-Andre Fleury will be starting tonight, but who knows if that is true.
