Little scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 3-2 Game 6 loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets' forward scored with 38 seconds remaining in regulation to cut St. Louis' lead to a single goal, but that would be as close as Little and the Jets would get in what was an elimination game for the visitors. The 31-year-old finishes the playoffs with a goal and two assists in six games.

Little registered an assist and three hits in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 3 of their first-round series.

EDGE Analysis

After ending the regular season on a 13-game pointless skid, Little has two helpers in his last three outings. He had 41 points in 82 games this year, his eighth straight non-lockout season at 40-plus points, but his 62 hits would indicate that physicality isn't something to expect with the 31-year-old forward.

Little notched an assist in Wednesday's Game 1 matchup with St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Little shook off a 13-game pointless streak, but he still hasn't found the back of the net since March 12 versus San Jose. Considering the Edmonton native has put a meager four shots on goal in his previous six outings, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he's been unable to get one past the keeper. If he continues to have Patrik Laine on his right wing, Little should get some opportunities to find open ice and get out of his drought.

Little provided a helper in an 8-1 win over the Hurricanes on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Little had the secondary assist on defenseman Ben Chiarot's first-period goal. The helper snapped Little's five-game point drought. He's seen his role reduced with the addition of Kevin Hayes. Little is up to 40 points in 67 games, the eighth straight season he's reached that mark, excluding the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. However, as the veteran forward occupies a third-line spot, his scoring is likely to be inconsistent over the remainder of the season.

Little saw a drastic drop in minutes against Minnesota on Tuesday (a near season-low 12:51), as his spot on the second line goes to trade acquisition Kevin Hayes.

EDGE Analysis

As soon as Hayes was brought in from the Rangers, it spelled bad news for Little, who had been playing with the likes of Patrik Laine. Without a world-class sniper on his wing, the Edmonton native could struggle to produce, though he needs just one more point to register a sixth straight 40-plus point campaign.

Little's participating in Tuesday's warmup, suggesting he'll take the ice against the Sharks, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Little missed the game-day skate Tuesday, but whatever kept him out of that won't force him to miss any game action. He's built up some nice momentum with five points in the past four games, and Winnipeg's second-line center will have an opportunity to keep rolling in this home contest.

Little missed Tuesday's game-day skate due to an undisclosed issue and is considered a game-time decision versus San Jose, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

Little has been tearing it up of late, as he notched five points in his previous four outings, including a pair of power-play assists. If the Edmonton native is unable to suit up, Adam Lowry could slot into his spot on the second line, while Nicolas Petan returns to the lineup for the first time since Dec. 22.

Little scored two goals and added one assist in Winnipeg's 9-3 win over the Ducks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Little has come alive offensively over the last four weeks. He has 14 points (six goals, eight assists) in 12 games and has suddenly become relevant again. Prior to that point, Little had 20 points in 40 games. Check your wire. At this rate, he can help.

Little registered an assist in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

Little is on pace for a sixth consecutive 40-plus point campaign and could challenge for the 50 mark for the first time since 2014-15. The Edmonton native figures to continue anchoring the Jets' second line alongside elite sniper Patrik Laine.

Little scored the game-winning goal in overtime and added an assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

He's now collected a point in five straight games, pushing Little's totals to 10 goals and 27 points through 45 contests. The 31-year-old has produced at least 40 points in each of the last seven full seasons, and barring an injury he should easily reach that mark again in 2018-19.
