Description: Winnipeg goaltender Al Montoya will start the second game of a back-to-back set for the Jets.
Insight: Montoya is 2-2-0 with a 2.20 GAA and a .921 SV% in five games this season. He'll have a good chance to raise his record above the .500 mark against a Calgary team that is winless in their last six contests (0-5-1).
Zach Bogosian, D11/17/2013 1:30:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg coach Claude Noel said that defenseman Zach Bogosian is week-to-week with a groin injury rather than day-to-day, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.
Insight: Bogosian was a 30-point player in 65 games in 2011, but dropped to 14 last season and his four points in 21 games this year indicated his production level has dropped below start worthy. He's simply not fantasy worthy anymore.
Zach Bogosian, D11/17/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg defenseman Zach Bogosian will miss Sunday's game against Minnesota due to an lower-body injury.
Insight: Bogosian was a 30-point player in 65 games in 2011, but dropped to 14 last season and his four points in 21 games this year indicated his production level has dropped below start worthy. He's simply not fantasy worthy anymore.
Dustin Byfuglien, D11/16/2013 9:54:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg defenseman Dustin Byfuglien notched a pair of goals Friday in a shootout win over Philadelphia.
Insight: Byfuglien seems to be heating up. After going the first 18 games of the year without scoring, he's lit the lamp three times in his last three appearances. The 31 and a half minutes he logged in Friday night's victory were a season-high.
Ondrej Pavelec, G11/8/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec had a 41-save shutout Friday against the Predators.
Insight: Pavelec has been a below-average fantasy netminder throughout his career. He came into Friday's game 4-7-2 with a 3.09 GAA and a .902 SV%. Avoid him.
Bryan Little, CHot11/8/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: Jets center Bryan Little had a pair of goals Friday against Nashville, giving him 10 on the season.
Insight: Little has already blown by his total of seven goals in 48 games all of last season despite playing the same exact role.
Evander Kane, LW11/8/2013 10:41:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg left wing Evander Kane (lower body) had an assist and three SOG in his return to action Friday against the Predators.
Insight: Kane skated 16:16 in his return, down from his season average of 21:36. However, all of Winnipeg's top forwards skated fewer minutes Friday with the game well in hand, so don't read too much into Kane's playing time. He has six goals, four assists, 21 PIM and 69 SOG in 16 games this season.
Evander Kane, LW11/8/2013 11:21:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg left wing Evander Kane (lower body) is questionable for Friday's game against Nashville.
Insight: Kane thought he could play Wednesday, but coach Claude Noel didn't agree and sat him against Chicago, but he is obviously close to returning. With six goals and three assists in 15 games he's putting together the start of another solid season.
Evander Kane, LW11/6/2013 8:26:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg left wing Evander Kane (lower body) is not playing Wednesday.

Al Montoya, G11/6/2013 7:08:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg goaltender Al Montoya will start a second straight game in net Wednesday at Chicago.
Insight: Montoya is 2-1-0 with a 1.69 GAA and a .939 SV% in four games this season, while Ondrej Pavelec is 4-7-2 with a 3.09 GAA and a .902 SV%. Montoya will continue to start as long as he's playing well, but he shouldn't be trusted Wednesday night against the Blackhawks.
Evander Kane, LW11/6/2013 5:23:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg left wing Evander Kane (lower body) has a chance to play in Wednesday's game after all, according to the Winnipeg Sun.

Insight: The team is calling his ailment a "lower body injury." For now, consider the talented 22-year-old day-to-day.
Bryan Little, C11/2/2013 1:45:00 PM
Description: Jets center Bryan Little has scored a goal in two straight games to match his total from all of last season.

Insight: "It's just maintenance. It will be a game-time situation where we'll see how he's doing," said coach Claude Noel. "We have to see." The 22-year-old Kane has five goals, three assists, 19 PIM, 58 SOG and a +2 in 11 games this season.
Mark Stuart, D10/24/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg Jets defenseman Mark Stuart is questionable for Thursday's game against Nashville with a strained hip.
Insight: Stuart has just one point this season and scored only four in 42 games last season. He has zero fantasy value even when healthy.
Jim Slater, C10/24/2013 1:56:00 PM
Description: Jets center Jim Slater is questionable for Thursday's game against Nashville with an undusclosed injury.
Insight: Slater doesn't get enough ice time to warrant attention from fantasy owners. He scored just two points in 26 games last season and has one point in the first eight games to date.
Jacob Trouba, D10/19/2013 3:48:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg blue-liner Jacob Trouba could miss up to a month after suffering a sprained neck on Friday. SOURCE: Winnipeg Free Press
Insight: Considering how awful the injury looked, it's actually good news that Trouba will only be out a month. The 19-year-old from Michigan has registered three points (one goal, two assists) in eight games this season.
Tobias Enstrom, D10/18/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom scored a game-tying goal with 1:54 left in the third period Friday against the Blues.
Insight: Enstrom took five SOG, just one off his total for the entire season prior to this game. The 28-year-old blueliner has one goal and six assists in seven games and will offer 0.50 ppg production. However, his health is always a question mark.
Jacob Trouba, D10/18/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Jets rookie defenseman Jacob Trouba left Friday's game on a stretcher after losing his footing and falling face first into the boards behind the Blues' net.
Insight: The Jets tweeted that Trouba was alert and gave the fans a thumbs up as he was being wheeled off the ice. Prior to Friday's game, the 2012 No. 9 overall pick had one goal, two points, 14 SOG and was averaging 23:26 of ice time over his first seven NHL games.
Chris Thorburn, RW10/18/2013 10:18:00 AM

Evander Kane, LW10/18/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane is doubtful for Friday's game against St. Louis with a bruised right knee.
Insight: Kane hurt the knee during Wednesday's practice. So far, the 22-year-old has been a nice offensive threat with three goals and two assists in seven games this season.

Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane hurt his right leg during practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Winnipeg Free Press

Chris Thorburn, RW10/13/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg forward Chris Thorburn is questionable for Sunday's game against New Jersey with a lower body injury.
Insight: Thorburn has never scored more than nine goals or totaled more than 19 points in a season. He could give you 80-90 penalty minutes, but that's not much value for fantasy owners.
Chris Thorburn, RW10/11/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg forward Chris Thorburn is questionable for Friday's game against Dallas with a lower body injury.
Insight: Thorburn has never scored more than nine goals or totaled more than 19 points in a season. He could give you 80-90 penalty minutes, but that's not much value for fantasy owners.
Evander Kane, LW10/5/2013 9:34:00 AM
Description: Left wing Evander Kane had a productive outing Friday in Winnipeg's home opener.
Insight: Kane did it all Friday night against Los Angeles. He contributed one goal, two assists, seven shots and a team-high nine penalty minutes. If Friday is any indication, Winnipeg's second line of Kane, Devin Setoguchi and Mark Scheifele should produce plenty of scoring this season.
Devin Setoguchi, RW10/5/2013 9:30:00 AM
Description: Devin Setoguchi powered the Jets to victory Friday night with two goals and one assist in 13 and a half minutes of ice time.
Insight: The two goals came within three minutes of each other in the third period. Setoguchi seems to be developing quite a rapport with linemate Evander Kane. Setoguchi assisted on Kane's goal and Kane assisted on both of Setoguchi's tallies in Friday night's win.
Grant Clitsome, D10/1/2013 3:18:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg defenseman Grant Clitsome has been placed on the seven-day IR with an undisclosed injury.

Description: Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien left Friday's preseason game with a lower-body injury but coach Claude Noel said Byfuglien is "fine." SOURCE: Winnipeg Sun
Insight: Byfuglien had some cramping but that appears to be the extent of his injury. The 28-year-old scored eight goals with 28 points in 43 games last season. He's one of fantasy's top blueliners.
Eric Tangradi, LW7/17/2013 5:26:00 PM
Description: Eric Tangradi has decided to stay in Winnipeg. SOURCE: Ken Wiebe, Winnipeg Sun

Description: Winnipeg defenseman Zach Bogosian is questionable for Monday's game against Buffalo due to an upper-body injury.

Zach Bogosian, DHot4/20/2013 9:59:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg defenseman Zach Bogosian has produced two goals and seven points during his four-game scoring streak.
Insight: Bogosian was a 30-point player in 65 games last season and his current streak puts him at a similar pace after his production was dormant for most of the season.

Insight: According to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, Jokinen got tied up with Thomas Hickey along the boards and his leg twisted awkwardly.
