Dustin Byfuglien is the biggest, baddest man around.
In the second period of Monday night's game between the Winnipeg Jets and the Edmonton Oilers, Byfuglien absolutely demolished Oilers enforcer Luke Gadzic with a vicious hit. Gadzic was injured on the play, and we don't want to romanticize or celebrate a guy getting hurt, but this hit was clean enough to eat fried eggs and hash off of.
Let this stand as a not-so-gentle reminder that Byfuglien is at the absolute apex of the NHL food chain.

The Winnipeg Jets are back in action this evening as they host the Edmonton Oilers at the MTS centre in downtown Winnipeg. This is the second of the Oilers-Jets three game series, with the Jets beating the Oilers 3-2 in overtime with the previous bought.
The Jets enter today's game holding onto the first Wild Card spot in the Western Conference with a record of 29-19-10, while the Oilers have the last spot in the West with a 16-32-9 record. Both teams have struggled over their last 10, with Jets being 3-5-2 and the Oilers being 4-6-0.

I mentioned in yesterday’s recap that the St. John’s IceCaps really needed to pick up some points against the Worcester Sharks if they wanted to remain in contention for a playoff spot. Their game on Saturday did them no favours, and it looked like history was going to repeat itself on Sunday as well. However, as the hourglass trickled away on the game, something magical happened.

We are back with the third edition of Future NHEhlers where we review all the latest in news, statistics gossip and rumours of the Jets prospects who are not currently in the AHL. We are a day earlier than normal as I am currently flying around the world to return home to Canada. It's been an active week as Ehlers continues to dominate and set records, while a shake up of the prospects in the Kane trade has shipped out a former member and brought in two new ones.
