Albert was reassigned to AHL St. John's on Wednesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Albert was auditioning for a bottom-six role with the Jets, after logging nine games with the club in 2013-14. He'll assume a primary scoring role while he remains with the AHL club, but the 25-year-old won't have the opportunity to deliver much point production on the occasions he gets the call back to the Jets.

John Albert made his NHL debut Monday night against the Rangers.

He scored his first NHL goal on his first big-league shot. Albert cashed in on a partial breakaway at the halfway mark of the contest. "I thought he was fine," said coach Claude Noel. "He had a couple little bumps where he was in our zone and they got caught a little bit, but I didn't think too much of it. He looked like he knew where he was going. I thought positionally he was strong. He would have liked to have won some battles earlier but after that, he got himself in the game real well." He logged 8:29 of ice time in the match, while skating on the fourth line.
