Jets’ Stuart has lower-body injury

The Winnipeg Jets might be without defenseman Mark Stuart on Monday, when they face the Edmonton Oilers before the league takes its holiday break.

Stuart suffered a lower-body injury in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, and Winnipeg’s head coach Claude Noel wasn’t sure if Stuart would be available to play the Oilers Monday, as per Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.

Stuart’s final shift came with 7:10 remaining in the third period, as per the league’s Time on Ice online report.

In 26 games this season, the 29-year-old Stuart has one goal and five points on the Winnipeg blue line.
