Little contributed a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

Little potted the game-winning tally for the second time in three games, breaking a 1-1 tie 4:58 into the final frame with the first of three unanswered Jets goals. He added a helper on Dustin Byfuglien's even-strength marker later in the period. Little only had one point in six appearances prior to this outing, but his placement among Winnipeg's top-six group up front should allow the veteran pivot to put his slow start behind him.

Little registered the game-winning goal as the Jets stormed past the Hurricanes at home, 3-1.

EDGE Analysis

With 2:09 left in the third period, the Hurricanes were slow to make a line change, only to watch Little go top shelf after he accepted a tremendous pass from defenseman Josh Morrissey. This was the first point of the season for Little, who entered the 2018-19 campaign with 200 career tallies and 475 points in all.

Little notched a helper in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

Little's helper may have ended an eight-game pointless streak, but he still finished the season on a 12-game goal drought. The lack of production from Jets' third line was a significant factor to their inability to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. The 30-year-old's productivity during the regular season was far superior, as he cracked the 40-point mark for the fifth consecutive season and eight time overall. If Paul Stastny doesn't re-sign with Winnipeg, Little is a near lock to rejoin the second-line alongside Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers, which will provide increased opportunities to rack up points during the 2018-19 campaign.

Little (undisclosed) took part in warmups before Monday's Game 6 against the Predators and is expected to play, Joshua Clipperton of The Canadian Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Little is expected to center Winnipeg's third line nestled between Nikolaj Ehlers and Joel Armia. The veteran didn't miss a game with this injury, although he was limited to 13:29 in Game 5. Nevertheless, it looks like the Jets will have their same lineup as they try and eliminate the Predators.

Little will be a game-time decision against the Predators for Game 6 on Monday with an undisclosed ailment, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the event Little is unable to give it a go, he will be replaced in the lineup by Matt Hendricks. The 29-year-old Little was limited to 13:29 of ice time in Game 5, which may have been the result of his mystery issue when you consider he was averaging 14:54 of ice time prior to that contest. The center provided assists in the first three outings of this second-round matchup with Nashville, but has been absent from the scoresheet in the last two.

Little set up a goal and had a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 win that saw the Jets take a 2-1 lead in their series against Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

The career-long Thrasher/Jet has now gotten his name on the scoresheet in four consecutive contests, having recorded a goal, three assists, and a plus-4 rating in that span. Though he's not utilized as a top-two pivot any longer, Little remains a highly effective player who makes Winnipeg a serious Stanley Cup contender while skating on its third line.

Little snagged a helper against the Predators in Sunday's Game 2 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Little has produced points in three consecutive contests, despite filling a bottom-six role for the club. The center's productivity comes even as his minutes have dropped compared to his regular-season average (14:35 versus 16:56). If the Jets are going to steal the series away from Nashville, the 29-year-old will be critical to the team's success by providing scoring depth.

Little collected an even-strength assist Friday in a 4-1 road win over the Predators to take Game 1 of the conference semifinals.

EDGE Analysis

Little played well in the first-round series against the Wild, as he collected a goal and an assist to complement a plus-3 rating over five games. However, it's a bit concerning that he didn't get a shot off in the opener against the Preds after registering only seven shots in the conference quarterfinals. Take what you can get from Little in playoff settings; he's a proven playmaker, but his third-line role isn't conducive to churning out the fantasy points.
