Description: Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec picked up a shutout against the Wild on Monday.
Insight: Pavelec was able to do what a lot of goalies haven't been able to since Jan. 15, and that's beat Devan Dubnyk in regulation. This is a huge victory as the Jets move back in front of the Los Angeles Kings by two points. Los Angeles has yet to play on Monday, but after that, both teams will have three games left.
Description: Jets blueliner Dustin Byfuglien will be suspended four games for the nasty crosscheck to Rangers forward J.T. Miller on Tuesday.
Insight: With Miller practically laying on the ice, Byfuglien crosschecked him to the back of the neck. Somehow, Byfuglien wasn't penalized on the play. Byfuglien has no history of fines and Miller was able to finish the game, so that's probably why the Jets winger/defenseman only received a four-game suspension. He will be able to return on April 11, which really hurts both the Jets and fantasy owners.
Description: Jets right winger Blake Wheeler scored in the, 5-3, loss to the Canucks on Tuesday.
Insight: It was a one score game until Vancouver scored two empty-net goals in the final minute. Wheeler's goal came on even strength. With this loss and the Kings victory over the Rangers, Los Angeles is two points behind Winnipeg for the final wild card spot in the Western Conference, and the Kings have played one fewer game. Wheeler has 23 goals and 34 assists with a plus-24 rating this season.
Description: Jets winger Drew Stafford scored the only goal for Winnipeg that mattered for fantasy owners on Thursday.
Insight: Stafford and Andrew Ladd also scored in the shootout, but fantasy owners won't get credit for those goals. Winnipeg beat St. Louis, 2-1, in a shootout. Stafford has 15 goals and 20 assists in 65 games with Buffalo and Winnipeg this season.
Description: Jets right winger Blake Wheeler recorded three points during Tuesday's win over the Sharks.
Insight: He had two goals and one assist, along with four shots and a plus-two rating. Wheeler now has 22 goals, 55 points, 67 penalty minutes, and a plus-19 rating through 68 games. Andrew Ladd, Adam Lowry, and Mark Scheifele also lit the lamp for Winnipeg.
Description: Jets left wing Andrew Ladd had a goal and an assist in the, 5-4, loss to the Blues on Tuesday.

Description: Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom scored the team's lone goal in Thursday's loss against the Capitals.
Insight: Enstrom scored in the second period to cut Winnipeg's deficit in half, but Washington scored three unanswered goals to end the game. Enstrom has four goals and 14 assists in 41 games this season.
Description: Jets blueliner Dustin Byfuglien didn't take any penalties on Saturday, but he still contributed to his fantasy clubs.
Insight: Byfuglien is fifth in the league in PIM, 107, but he showcased his skill with two assists versus the Red Wings. He assisted Chris Thorburn's goal in the first period and then Andrew Ladd's score on the power play. Byfuglien has 14 goals and 26 assists in 58 games this season.
Description: The Buffalo Sabres have traded for winger Evander Kane and two other players from the Winnipeg Jets.
Insight: The main pieces the Sabres had to give up were Drew Stafford and a first-round pick, but Buffalo does have two other first-round selections. The pick they gave up was also either the Blues or Islanders' selection rather than the Sabres pick, which will be much higher than the playoff-bound Blues and Islanders. Kane is a very intriguing player in dynasty leagues as he could be paired with rookie center Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel next season.
Description: Jets blueliner Dustin Byfuglien scored the game-winning goal in overtime versus the Wild on Tuesday. Winnipeg won, 2-1.
Insight: Byfuglien's goal was unassisted. He was plus-two with three shots on net. Byfuglien has 13 goals and 23 assists in 56 game this season. He is also dominanting the penalty minutes category with 101 PIM.
Description: Jets center Bryan Little had a goal and an assist with three shots on net in the, 5-3, victory versus the Avalanche on Sunday.

Insight: Byfuglien started the season as a forward, but returned to his natural defensive position and has played well since the change. He posted nine points in 25 games during October and November and 24 points in his last 26 games. This change won't make fantasy owners very happy.
Description: Jets left winger Evander Kane had three assists versus the Penguins on Tuesday.
Insight: Unfortunately that wasn't enough as Winnipeg dropped its 14th straight in Pittsburgh. That streak goes all the way back to when the franchise was the Atlanta Thrashers. Kane has 10 goals and 12 assists in 34 games this season.
Description: Jets goalie Matt Hutchinson returned to the net on Friday and made 31 saves in a victory over the Blackhawks.
Insight: Winnipeg started former starting goaltender Ondrej Pavelec on Thursday, and he made 46 saves in a, 2-1, victory over the Stars. Therefore, Hutchinson owners wanted to see him have a good game to avoid another goalie controversy. Hutchinson stopped 31-of-33 shots to improve to 13-4-2 on the season.
Description: Jets defender Dustin Byfuglien had two goals and an assist in Tuesday's, 8-2, victory over the Panthers.
Insight: When the team scores eight goals, there was plenty of points to go around, but most of them went to Mathieu Perreault, who scored four goals, and Byfuglien. Byfuglien assisted Perreault's power-play goal. The winger turned defenseman has 11 goals and 17 assists in 44 games this season.

Insight: Wheeler scored his ninth goal of the season in the first period to give the Jets a, 2-1, lead. Wheeler then assisted Michal Frolik's short-handed goal towards the end of the second period. Wheeler was plus-two with two shots on net.
Description: Jets winger Dustin Byfuglien will move back to defense according to the Winnipeg Free Press.
Insight: Zach Bogosian, Grant Clitsome, and Tobias Enstrom are all out with injures, so Byfuglien will ehlp out on defense. This lowers his stock even though he probably will still be eligible to start as a winger in fantasy.
Description: Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec had another poor performance on Thursday.
Insight: Pavelec allowed four goals on 27 shots, which is a .852 save percentage. In six of his 18 games, Pavelec has posted a save percentage below .900. Despite the struggles, he has improved in November. His save percentage this month is .930.
Description: Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec recorded his first shutout of the season on Saturday.
Insight: Pavelec actually clinched the shutout before the victory against the Rangers. Pavelec did not allow a goal in regulation or overtime, and thus had a shutout, but he had to better Henrik Lundqvist in the shootout to win. He stopped all four shots he faced in the shootout, and finally the Jets scored. Pavelec made 38 saves in the shutout.
Description: Jets center Bryan Little scored his fourth goal of the season on Friday against the Lightning.
Insight: Little scored on the power play at the 5:33 mark of the second period. The goal made the game, 2-1, but Tampa Bay scored twice before the end of the second period to take a three-goal lead. Little has five points this season.
Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane is progressing ahead of schedule with his knee injury according to coach Paul Maurice.
Insight: An exact timetable has not been determined, but Maurice is certainly encouraged by his youg left winger's progress. Kane will likely return at some point in November, which we realize is a wide return widow being as November is a week away.
Description: Winnipeg left wing Andrew Ladd scored a goal and had six shots on goal, on Tuesday night.
Insight: It was a nice night for Ladd, who scored his first goal of the season. He is not a great fantasy option, as he plays on a poor team, but Ladd will have solid nights like this one, throughout the season. Dustin Byfuglien and Adam Lowry scored the Jets' other two goals on the night.
Description: Jets center Bryan Little will look to build off a solid performance from from the Jets' opener.
Insight: After scoring two goals on Thursday against Arizona, Winnipeg was shut out on Saturday night by the Sharks. Little scored two goals in the season-opener, and after producing a career-high 64 points last season, he will have a great opporunity to improve on those numbers in 2014-15.
Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane will at least miss 7-10 games with his knee injury and doctors will reevaluate him in two weeks according to the Winnipeg Sun.
Insight: That is actually positive news because we all know that knee injuries can be pretty tricky. Hopefully, we get some more positive news in two weeks. Kane is an up-and-coming player in the league.
Description: Winnipeg left wing Andrew Ladd couldn't match his lockout-shortened per game production (.95 ppg) last season, returning to a .69 ppg level which is in line with his career numbers.
Insight: Ladd finished the season with 23 goals, 31 assists (54 points), 57 PIM and 189 SOG in 78 games and we have him posting 51 points in 2014-15 playing alongside Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien.
Description: Jets center Bryan Little posted a career best 64 points last season, but still might find himself on the second line in 2014-15.
Insight: That would necessarily be a horrible thing as we like the Jets second line wingers - Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien. We have projected a slight regression to 58 points (19 G, 39 A) this season.
Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane played just 63 games last season, but took 250 shots - almost four per game and he should continue at that pace in 2014-15.
Insight: We have projected Kane to post 26 goals, one off his career best in 2011-12, we'd just like to see him get his plus/minus rating back into the black. He'll play alongside Blake Wheeler and center Mark Scheifele.
Description: Jets right winger Blake Wheeler should remind multi-sport fantasy owners of outfielder Hunter Pence.
Insight: Like Pence, Wheeler gets his production not by being spectacular, but by producing on a daily basis and playing every game. He's played every game over the past two seasons and posted 69 points last season (28 G, 41 A) with a +4 rating. He'll play on the top line with Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele.
