      Winnipeg Jets

      Gabriel Vilardi (MCL sprain) has been activated from the Injured Reserve but will be a game-time decision Thursday vs. Edmonton.

      Vilardi has not played since October 17th, the third game of the season, when he suffered an MCL sprain. His status for Thursday's game against the Edmonton Oilers remains to be determined but he would add a noticeable offensive punch to a Jets team that already ranks eighth in the league offensively (3.38 GF / GP). Before his injury, Vilardi was seeing deployment on the top powerplay unit, a spot he would likely reclaim in favour of Cole Perfetti.

      Gabriel Vilardi (sprained MCL) practiced Tuesday but is not expected to return vs. Dallas.

      Vilardi has not played since October 17th due to a sprained MCL but appears to be nearing his return as he participated in practice on Tuesday. Cole Perfetti has been the main benefactor of Vilardi's injury, replacing him on the top powerplay unit. It is unclear if Vilardi will retake his spot on the powerplay, but if he does, it will likely have a great impact on Perfetti's production, as he has scored 16 points (7G / 9A) in the 17 games Vilardi has not been in the lineup.

      The Jets placed Vilardi on Injured Reserve.

      Jets' newcomer Vilardi will miss approximately four to six weeks after suffering an injury (sprained MCL) in Tuesday's matchup against the Los Angeles Kings. In three games this season, Vilardi was seeing time on the top line and top powerplay unit, recording one assist and nine shots on goal. The loss is a sizeable one for the Jets, who will likely turn to Mason Appleton and Alex Iafallo for an increase in playing time.

      Vilardi (lower-body) will not return to Tuesday's game against the Kings.

      Vilardi suffered what the Jets are calling a lower-body injury after falling awkwardly following a hit from the Kings Blake Lizotte. Vilardi scored 23 goals and added 18 assists in 63 games with the Kings last season before heading to Winnipeg as part of the trade that sent Pierre-Luc Dubois to Los Angeles. The 24-year-old Vilardi had impressed in his first two games as a Jet, registering one assist and nine shots on goal.
