Jets’ David Gustafsson returns to practice in non-contact jersey; will travel on two-game road trip – Jetsnation

One day after defeating the Minnesota Wild 2-0, the Winnipeg Jets received an encouraging injury update on forward David Gustafssonwho returned to practice Wednesday wearing a non-contact jersey.

Following the club’s practice, interim coach Dave Lowry revealed there’s still no timeline for Gustafsson’s return, however, he’ll travel with the team – along with defenceman Logan Stanley – on the upcoming two-game road trip.

Gustafsson, 21, has been on injured reserve with a lower-body injury since Jan. 6 and was transferred to the team’s LTIR on Jan. 25.

Most likely, taking part in this upcoming road trip will allow the recovering 6’2 ″ forward to continue practicing with the club rather than having to do so back in Winnipeg over the weekend. This way, if he’s cleared for contact shortly, he’ll be able to immediately participate in those drills with his teammates.

Through 28 career NHL games, Gustafsson has posted one goal, one point, six blocks, five shots on goal, five hits, two takeaways and a 51.1 percent face-off percentage.

On another injury-related note, while speaking to the media, general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff confirmed there’s still no timeline for forward Nikolaj Ehlers‘return, as he continues recovering from his lower-body injury.

The Jets will begin the first half of their back-to-back series Friday against the Dallas Stars, starting at 7:30 pm CT.
