The Winnipeg Jets will be without prized prospect Nic Petan, 20, on Saturday night when they host the Philadelphia Flyers at the MTS Centre.

Petan, who has mostly played fourth-line minutes for the Jets with occasional stints of power-play time, will miss the contest with an undisclosed illness. He'll be replaced in the lineup by journeyman Patrice Cormier, still just 25-years-old, who is a Thrashers holdover from the Ilya Kovalchuk trade of yesteryear.

Last year it was safe to say that it sucked to see a really good game of hockey decided by a skills competition like the shootout.

This year after a really good game of hockey in regulation time, a frantic display of cl(H)utch goaltending late and a semi-chaotic 3 on 3 overtime that would make a cup of coffee nervous, seeing a game decided by a shootout seems almost criminal.
