Tobias Enstrom has surgery to repair a lower body injury, but it only kept him out of action for five games. The defenceman will make his return to the Jets lineup tonight for the first time since suffering an injury in the first period of the loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning back on Feb. 11.
Also, both Marko Dano and Andrew Copp have been cleared for contact, and could be ready to return shortly. Copp has been injured since the middle of February with an upper body injury, while Dano has been out since late December with a leg injury.
The returns will certainly be welcome for a Jets squad pushing for the playoffs with only 19 games left to go in the regular season.
