      Connor (knee) will be back in the Jets lineup on Tuesday.

      Connor has been out of the lineup since December 10th, missing 16 games with a knee injury, but will return to the lineup on Tuesday against the New York Islanders. Connor will provide an offensive boost for a Jets team, without Mark Scheifele (lower-body), that saw their season-best eight-game winning streak come to a halt in their last contest, a 2-0 shutout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Before his injury, Connor had 28 points (17G / 11A) and 102 shots on goal in 26 games.

      The Jets have re-signed Kyle Connor to a seven-year contract worth $50 million ($7.14M AAV).

      Connor was looking for term and he got it. The 22-year-old winger has scored 30-plus goals in back-to-back seasons and set a new career-high in points (66) in 2018-19. Connor is expected to be a fixture on the Jets top-line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler again in 2019-20 and should have no trouble approaching 30 goals again.

      The Jets have recalled Kyle Connor from Manitoba (AHL).

      Connor, 20, who was expected to make the Jets out of training camp, was sent to Manitoba to open the season and has picked up three goals and two assists (five points) in four games with the Moose. Connor will replace Mathieu Perreault in the lineup and is expected to skate with Bryan Little and Patrik Laine on Tuesday. Connor has five points (2G / 3A) in 20 career NHL games.

      The Jets have assigned Kyle Connor to Manitoba (AHL).

      Connor, who was the Jets No.17 overall pick in 2015, was expected to crack the opening night roster but fell down the depth chart throughout the preseason. Connor has electrifying potential thanks to his exceptional speed, but the organization obviously feels he needs a little more seasoning in the AHL--plus he doesn't need to clear waivers. The 20-year-old winger had 25 goals and 19 assists (44 points) in 52 AHL games a season ago.

      The Jets have placed Kyle Connor (upper-body) on injured reserve.

      Connor was injured on a hit from behind by Kings’ forward Kyle Clifford on Sunday and the injury will keep him out for at least one week, which is why he was moved to IR immediately. His movement to IR opened up a roster spot for the Jets’ to recall Chase De Leo from Manitoba (AHL).
