Feb 17 - 9:38 AM

Patrik Laine scored a power play goal in Friday's 6-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Laine's tally at the 19:32 mark of the second period extended Winnipeg's lead to 4-0 at the time. He finished the game with two points, two shots on goal and one hit in 16:15 of ice time. He has 26 goals and 44 points in 58 games this season.

Mark Scheifele registered three assists in Friday's 6-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

The 24-year-old helped set up goals by Blake Wheeler, Andrew Copp (shorthanded) and Patrik Laine (power play). Scheifele now has 17 goals and 28 assists in 42 games this season. He's a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Andrew Copp scored his first goal in 28 games on Friday night.

His shorthanded goal gave the Jets a 3-0 lead in their game against the Colorado Avalanche (they ended up winning 6-1). Copp's last goal came on Dec. 9, so it had been a while since he found the back of the net. He has five goals and 17 points in 58 games this season.
Feb 17 - 9:29 AM

Matt Hendricks was able to play on Friday against Colorado.

It was believed he would be OK to dress after he practiced Thursday. Hendricks had to leave Tuesday's contest early following a hit from Washington's Madison Bowey. He logged just under 15 minutes of action versus the Avalanche.
Feb 17 - 2:50 AM

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 30 of 31 shots in Friday's 6-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

It looked like Hellebuyck was going to come away with shutout, but Avalanche forward Mikko Rantanen put an end to that with just under six minutes to go in regulation. The Jets goalie has now won four of his last six games. He has a 30-8-8 record with a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season. Hellebuyck will continue to be a strong number one goalie in standard fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Feb 16 - 10:52 PM

Blake Wheeler scored two goals and an assist in Friday's 6-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Wheeler opened the scoring at the 10:09 mark of the first before he helped set up Kyle Connor's goal midway through the second frame to give the Jets a 2-0 lead. Winnipeg's captain then scored a power play tally to make it 6-0 for his team in the third frame. He finished the night with a plus-2 rating, five shots on goal and one hit in 17:00 of ice time. He's up to 16 goals and 64 points in 58 games this season.
Feb 16 - 10:45 PM

Marko Dano will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Dano has two goals and one assist in 20 games this season. This will be the third consecutive game he watches from the press box. Tucker Poolman will also serve as a healthy scratch on Friday night.

Connor Hellebuyck is expected to start for Winnipeg Friday night.

Hellebuyck stopped 24 of 27 Capitals shots on Tuesday, which was good enough to pick up the win. He's 29-8-8 with a 2.37 GAA and .922 save percentage in 47 contests this season.
Feb 16 - 5:12 PM

Andrew Copp is projected to play between Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers on Friday night.

Copp has posted just two assists in the last 13 games, but he will be flanked by a pair of dynamic wingers against Colorado. Copp has four goals and 16 points over 57 games in 2017-18.
Feb 16 - 11:35 AM

Matt Hendricks (undisclosed) took part in Thursday's practice.

Hendricks wasn't able to complete Tuesday's game after absorbing a hit by Washington's Madison Bowey. It's not confirmed, but it wouldn't be surprising if Hendricks ended up playing on Friday.
Feb 15 - 1:37 PM

Brendan Lemieux will report to AHL Manitoba.

Lemieux has a goal in nine games with Winnipeg this season. He's also recorded 12 goals and 28 points in 30 AHL contests.

Jack Roslovic is projected to stay on a line with Bryan Little and Mathieu Perreault on Friday night.

Roslovic played well on that combination in Tuesday's game versus Washington. He earned an assist in the contest to give him three goals and five points in his last eight outings. Roslovic was bumped to the fourth line when Mark Scheifele returned to the lineup, but he has worked his way back up the depth chart.
