The Winnipeg Jets caught the injury bug early this season. Nikolaj Ehlers who has missed the last two games has been officially added to the injured reserve this afternoon.
Associate coach Scott Arniel who has been filling in for head coach Rick Bowness said on Wednesday after defeating the Stanley Cup champions the Colorado Avalanche “We’re still trying to figure him out here. it’s been nagging.”
The first-round pick in the 2014 draft, Ehlers has been a mainstay on the Jets since the 2015-16 season. In his time with the Jets, he has played 480 games and scored 164 goals and 361 points.
