In his second game back from a concussion, Patrik Laine has returned to his scoring ways.
The Winnipeg Jets rookie is now up to 22 goals on the season. He opened the scoring Thursday against the Chicago Blackhawks, blasting home a one-timer after being left wide open in the slot. Yeah, he’s not missing from there.
Slick pass from Bryan Little to set up the goal, too.
That’s a good sign for the Jets, who began tonight’s game four points out of a playoff spot.
That’s Laine’s first goal since returning to the Jets lineup, after being sidelined since Jan. 7. He made his return on Tuesday, recording an assist and three shots on goal in almost 22 minutes of ice time versus San Jose.
