The Winnipeg Jets called up Chase De Leo from the Manitoba Moose on emergency basis. This means that he's called up due to a player being injured and will fill in for whomever that may be.
Marko Dano missed the pre-game skate and so it is speculated he is likely the individual hurt.
Editorial revision: It has been announced that Dano is sick with the same flu that recently took out Dustin Byfuglien.

A little under a year ago, the Jets and Ducks met up in a first round playoff matchup and there was all kinds of excitement and more than a few thought the up and coming Jets could stun the battle worn and weary Ducks and give notice to the rest of the hockey world that Winnipeg had a team on the rise.
Fast forward to the present day and as both teams prepare for a Sunday afternoon battle, those battle worn and weary Ducks are back in race for top spot in the West while the Jets are still waiting for that "team on the rise" bit to actually happen... one day... soon.. maybe..

The video tribute the Winnipeg Jets had for the returning Andrew Ladd was maybe the most emotion shown by the home side the entire night as the Jets put forth a listless effort much to the glee of the Chicago Blackhawks who unlike the Jets have a lot to play for this time of the season.

With the Winnipeg Jets all but officially eliminated from playoff contention, the focus now is just focusing on finishing strong and building towards next season.
One player who that is certainly not lost on is Mark Scheifele.

Don't call it a comeback! The Winnipeg Jets take on the Chicago Blackhawks in a game that will see Andrew Ladd take on his former team while playing for... his former-er team? Formerist team? More former team? Whatever the case, it'll also be Marko Dano's first game against the Hawks, adding intrigue to a game that involves two teams in two very different positions in the Western Conference.
