Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien is expected to miss his third-straight contest for the Winnipeg Jets when the home side hosts the Florida Panthers on Tuesday. Beyond that, there's no concrete timetable in place for his return.
According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the club is taking the hushy-hushy approach to what's bothering their big, minute-munching blue-liner.
"... The Jets are being secretive about Byfuglien's injury, saying only it happened prior to the Florida game last week while the team was in its off-ice preparations. (Coach Claude) Noel said again Monday that Byfuglien is listed as day-to-day, and will be out of the lineup for the Panthers game ..."
With Byfuglien out, Zach Redmond is expected to fill the lineup void for the third-straight game, and Paul Postma should continue to play a more prominent role for the Jets, particularly on the power play.
