Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said last week that the team and Byfuglien's representatives have yet to make much progress on a contract extension for the defenseman, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. "Dialogue is ongoing at different stages with different people," Cheveldayoff said. "Again, there's lots of moving parts that come into play. Some of it is things that are in your control.

Byfuglien played with a dislocated rib in the Jets' playoff series against the Ducks, 680 CJOB Sports reports.

Byfuglien supplied a power-play assist in Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Ducks.

Byfuglien has completed his four-game suspension and will be eligible to return to the Jets' lineup Saturday against the Flames.

The Jets managed to secure a playoff spot despite Byfuglien's absence down the stretch, but the physical defenseman will have an opportunity to get back on the ice once more before the regular season draws to a close. While Winnipeg has little incentive to play its regulars for their usual amount of minutes in a mostly meaningless finale, Byfuglien might be one of the few exceptions since he hasn't played in a game since March 31. Given his incredible production this season from the blue line (18 goals, 45 points, 202 hits, 122 PIM in 68 games), it still appears worthwhile to use Byfuglien in daily formats.
