Halischuk re-signed Wednesday with the Jets on a one-year, two-way contract, Sara Orlesky of TSN reports. The deal is worth $750,000 at the NHL level.

Halischuk only produced three goals and eight points in 47 games last season while averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per contest in a bottom-six role. Coach Paul Maurice likes Halischuk's ability to play both left and right wing, but that versatility isn't likely to translate into an notable offensive production this coming season.

Halischuk recorded a goal on his lone shot attempt in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Flames.

Halischuk had been a healthy scratch in the Jets' previous handful of games, and with a few key forwards being rested Saturday, he may be headed back to the press box during the postseason. The winger totaled just eight points in 47 games this season.

Coach Paul Maurice said Halischuk (foot) is progressing closer to a return, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Maurice confirmed that 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.

Halischuk took to the ice Monday before the Jets' practice, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

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.

Coach Paul Maurice indicated Wednesday that he expects Halischuk (lower body) to return to action in early March, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.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.

Halischuk's injury is a lower-body ailment, and coach Paul Maurice said he expects the forward to be "out a while."

Maurice suggested that 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.

Halischuk was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.

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.

Halischuk supplied an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jackets.

With only seven points in 36 games to go along with mediocre hit, block, and PIM totals, 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.

Halischuk picked up his second assist of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Stars.

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.
