Jets' Halischuk Activated From IR

News: The Jets activated Matt Halischuk (foot) from IR on Friday.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk has been out of the Jets' lineup since Jan. 31 with a fractured foot. He'll return to a bottom-six role with the team.

Jets' Halischuk Progressing

News: Coach Paul Maurice said Matt Halischuk (foot) is progressing closer to a return, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Maurice confirmed that Matt Halischuk suffered a fractured foot in late January, but the winger was able to resume skating last week and looks to be nearing a return. He could be cleared to take part in practices with the full team in the next few days.

Jets' Halischuk (Lower Body) Skates Monday

News: Matt Halischuk took to the ice Monday before the Jets' practice, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk hasn't played since Jan. 29 due to the injury, but is believed to be on track for an early March return. His return to the ice Monday does nothing to derail that timeline, though he will likely need to practice with the team before taking the ice for a game. He will receive a chance to do so Tuesday before the Jets' next game Wednesday.

Jets' Halischuk Eyes Return In Early March

News: Coach Paul Maurice indicated Wednesday that he expects Matt Halischuk (lower body) to return to action in early March, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk, who last suited up on Jan. 29, recorded just seven points in 38 games prior to his injury, so his looming return is of more import to the Jets' depth up front than it is to fantasy owners.

Jets' Halischuk Dealing With Long-Term Injury

News: Matt Halischuk's injury is a lower-body ailment, and coach Paul Maurice said he expects the forward to be "out a while."
Analysis: Maurice suggested that Matt Halischuk's timetable was "beyond week-to-week," which could potentially put him at risk of missing the rest of the regular season. The Jets have already moved him to injured reserve and recalled T.J. Galiardi to provide some insurance on the team's fourth line.

Matt Halischuk

Jets Place Halischuk On IR

News: Matt Halischuk was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk more than likely got banged up in Thursday's loss to the Flyers. As a result of his placement on IR, he'll have to sit out the three games. T.J. Galiardi was recalled from AHL St. John's and will fill his spot on the Jets' fourth line.

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Notches Assist

News: Matt Halischuk supplied an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: With only seven points in 36 games to go along with mediocre hit, block, and PIM totals, Matt Halischuk has had difficulty providing much fantasy utility. That's likely to continue while he remains locked into a bottom-six role with the Jets.

Matt Halischuk, RW, WPG

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Notches Assist

News: Matt Halischuk picked up his second assist of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk is still searching for his first goal, but it's been hard to come by for a player who has been scratched in 12 of the team's 29 games. The 26-year-old is averaging a career-low 7:36 of ice time on the campaign.

Matt Halischuk

Halischuk Signs With Jets

News: Matt Halischuk has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Jets worth $725,000, the Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk thus returns to the Jets, on the heels of his first season with the team, in which the winger recorded a modest total of 10 points (including five goals) in 46 contests.

Matt Halischuk, RW, WPG

Matt Halischuk

Jets Ready To Part With Halischuk

News: Matt Halischuk will not be issued a qualifying offer by the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk skated in 46 contests for the Jets in 2013-14, collecting 10 total points (five goals). The 26-year-old winger will now become an unrestricted free agent, with his value in the fantasy world dependent on his ultimate landing spot.

Halischuk Chips In A Goal In Losing Effort

News: Matt Halischuk scored his fourth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk's goal is the only point he'll have in the entire month of March. He's struggled with injuries this year and is more of a grinder rather than a fantasy stud.

Matt Halischuk

Halischuk Activated By Jets

News: The Jets have activated Matt Halischuk (forearm) from IR in advance of Tuesday's game against the Islanders.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk, who checks back in with seven points in 30 games to date, is slated to work on the Jets' fourth line with Jim Slater and Chris Thorburn on Tuesday, the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Jets' Halischuk Won't Play Thursday

News: Matt Halischuk (forearm) will not return from IR for Thursday's game, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk has received medical clearance to return to the lineup, but coach Paul Maurice isn't quite ready to take the plunge and use him in his lineup just yet. After he gets in a few more practices, expect Halischuk to be activated.

2/26/2014

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Cleared To Return

News: Matt Halischuk (forearm) has received clearance to return to the lineup, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The only issue standing in his way is a crowded roster that's similarly healthy and might not have any immediate openings. The Jets would have to demote a player to the minors to make room for Matt Halischuk's return from IR, which might lead coach Paul Maurice to simply let the forward rest up for a few more games before making any roster decisions.

Jets' Halischuk Joins Teammates

News: Matt Halischuk (fractured forearm) was on the ice with his teammates on Wednesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk suffered a fractured forearm on Dec. 14, but his presence on the ice Wednesday suggests that he may be setting his sights on a return to action at, or around, the time the Jets resume action on Feb. 27.

Jets' Halischuk Resumes Skating

News: Matt Halischuk (forearm) is back skating for the Jets, Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: The winger suffered a broken wrist Dec. 14 and still remains limited in his activities, but he's been able to keep up his conditioning work while he waits for the wrist to heal. A typical fracture takes eight weeks to recover from, so it may not be until mid-February that Matt Halischuk is ready to go, after he first underwent surgery Dec. 14.

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Placed On IR

News: Matt Halischuk (forearm) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 14 by the Jets on Monday.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk underwent successful surgery on his forearm Saturday to repair a fracture. He's going to be out indefinitely with the injury, and a timetable for a return will likely be determined as his recovery progresses.

Jets' Halischuk Undergoes Surgery, Out Indefinitely

News: Matt Halischuk underwent successful forearm surgery Saturday night and will be out indefinitely.
Analysis: The injury that forced Matt Halischuk from Saturday's game was a fractured forearm, and the team wasted no time in getting the 25-year-old under the knife. A timetable for his return has not been established, but a trip to IR seems inevitable and an extended period on the shelf likely for Halischuk.

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Leaves With Injury

News: Matt Halischuk left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk appeared to be clutching his right arm when he exited the ice with the injury. The Jets should offer an update on his situation before the team's next game Monday in Columbus. He was at least courteous enough to deliver a goal for his fantasy owners before departing.

Matt Halischuk

Jets' Halischuk Adds Two Points In Loss

News: Matt Halischuk supplied a goal and assist in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk had just four points in 20 games entering Saturday's contest, so the two-point performance would seem to be an aberration for the 25-year-old. He still seems unlikely to receive an upgrade from his third-line role and remains primarily a deep league consideration at this juncture.

Halischuk Lifts Jets Over Red Wings

News: Matt Halischuk played a season high 15:02 Monday night against the Red Wings and scored the game-winning goal in a 4-2 win.
Analysis: It took a while for the former Kitchener Rangers standout to get acclimated to his new team, but Matt Halischuk scored his first goal as a Winnipeg Jet in his 13th game. Halischuk's offensive abilities are limited and in 170 career NHL games has scored 26 goals. His career high is 15, set in 2011-12 with the Predators, and it appears that's his ceiling. Linemate Mark Scheifele collected two assists and played his best game of the season. As a complementary player, Halischuk will only put up points when Scheifele is scoring as well. With minimal penalty minutes and other peripheral stats as well as his lack of offense, Halischuk's fantasy value is very limited.

Jets' Halischuk Notches First Point With New Team

News: Matt Halischuk assisted on a first period goal by Olli Jokinen in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Blues.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk is more of a rugged checker than a scorer. In 161 career NHL games, he has just 54 points and is not a fantasy roster-worthy player.

Jets' Halischuk (Shoulder) Scores In Preseason Debut

News: Matt Halischuk (shoulder) tallied the Jets' lone goal in Sunday's preseason loss to the Senators.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk was on the ice for 18 minutes in his debut with the Jets, who signed him in July following an 11-point season with the Predators. He seems fully recovered from shoulder surgery last May and is expected to serve on the fourth line for the Jets.

Jets Sign Halischuk

News: The Jets signed Matt Halischuk (shoulder) on Thursday.
Analysis: Matt Halischuk recorded a line of 5/6/11 in 36 games with the Predators last season, and should fit well on the Jets fourth line.

Preds' Halischuk Set To Have Shoulder Operation

News: Matt Halischuk is slated to undergo shoulder stabilization surgery, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The procedure will keep Matt Halischuk out 4-6 months, a timetable which should hopefully allow the winger (who recorded 11 points in 36 games this season) enough time to recover in time for the 2013-14 season.
