The Winnipeg Jets have a long way to go to get back into the playoff picture, but they’re getting key forward Mark Scheifele back on Sunday.
The talented scorer missed the last three games with a concussion. He’s suiting up against the Anaheim Ducks tonight.
Matt Halischuk is the odd man out in this equation, as he’s on his way back to the AHL.
Winnipeg is showing signs of life with three wins in its last four games, but in the brutally competitive Central, they’ll need all the help they can get.
With that in mind, you almost couldn’t blame them for envying tonight’s opponent in the Ducks, who enjoy a relatively extravagant margin of error in the Pacific.
