Byfuglien put up two more assists in Saturday's overtime loss to the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

He also had 10 PIM. Big Buff has nine points in 11 games, but is still looking for his first goal. That's a bit of a surprise given his double-digit goal scoring ways in every one of his full NHL seasons. Byfuglien should start to find twine, but his owners need to be prepared that at 32, his goal scoring may be on the decline. It's worth monitoring.

Byfuglien notched a power-play assist, plus-3 rating and four PIM in Sunday's 7-1 home rout over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Winnipeg's top two-way defenseman is still in pursuit of his first goal this season, but he's quietly amassed five assists in six games since returning from a lower-body injury. Byfuglien does a little of everything, which ensures that he gets heavy ice time on a nightly basis. This season, he's averaging close to 24 minutes per contest.

Byfuglien (lower body) is expected to play Saturday versus the visiting Hurricanes, as he made himself available to the media in the morning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the last two games, the bruising defenseman is set to replace Tucker Poolman for this next one. Byfuglien's 2017-18 season started with his producing an assist, two hits, three blocked shots and a minus-1 rating over the first two games against the Maple Leafs and Flames, respectively. He's an excellent two-way fantasy option who has posted 53 and 52 points with Winnipeg the past two seasons.

Byfuglien (lower body) could return to the lineup Saturday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Byfuglien was already ruled out versus the Canucks on Thursday, but fantasy owners can take solace in the fact that he could be available sooner rather than later. The defender is the lynchpin of the Jets defense and provides the bulk of their blue line scoring. In the meantime, Tucker Poolman will continue filling out the game-day lineup.

Byfuglien (lower body) won't dress for Thursday's tilt against Vancouver, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The imposing defenseman is reportedly battling a soft-tissue ailment in his lower body, and will remain day-to-day. After averaging 23:40 of time on ice during the first two regular-season games and notching an assist, Byfuglien showed once again how important he is to the Winnipeg defense, and will likely return to being the workhorse as soon as he's cleared to play. His next opportunity for a return will be Saturday against Carolina.

Byfuglien (lower body) did not take part in the Jets' on-ice workout Wednesday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Byfuglien was a surprise scratch from Monday's matchup with Edmonton and appears to be in doubt against the Canucks on Thursday. The hulking defenseman has been a mainstay on the Winnipeg blue line over the past two seasons, as he missed a mere three outings over that stretch. Without the Minnesota native, coach Paul Maurice will likely turn to youngster Tucker Poolman to try to fill that gap left by Byfuglien's absence.

Byfuglien is not on the ice for pregame warmups against the Oilers on Monday and hasn't skated the last two days, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. As such, he appears to be dealing with an undisclosed injury.

EDGE Analysis

This is big news for the Jets' top blueliner, who suited up for the team's first two games against Toronto and Calgary. It sounds like Byfuglien will be replaced in the lineup by rookie Tucker Poolman, who looks set to make his NHL debut Monday. Stay tuned for more information on Big Buff's status.

Byfuglien had an assist on Mark Scheifele's goal in the third period of a 7-2 Winnipeg loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

The fact that Byfuglien escaped a five-goal loss with a plus-minus of zero speaks to his capabilities on the blue line. If the Jets can put this forgettable performance behind them, Big Buff should have no trouble continuing to produce for fantasy owners.

Byfuglien scored a goal and chipped in two assists in a 4-3 overtime win over the visiting Ducks on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old also fired six shots on goal, bringing him up to a healthy 231 on the season. Despite the fact the Jets are going to miss the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons since moving back to Winnipeg, Byfuglien hasn't disappointed fantasy owners, delivering 51 points, triple-digit PIM (103), hits (181) and blocked shots (120), and a decent helping of power-play production (14 points). All that has come in a career-high 27:29 of ice time, which is the most in the NHL.

Byfuglien (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Tuesday night, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets figure to get a huge boost offensively with the return of Byfuglien and forward phenom Patrik Laine, who has evidently overcome an illness. Byfuglien continues to be a headache for defenders in the attacking zone, as he's accumulated 48 points (12 goals, 36 assists) and his 224 shots on goal only trails the output from captain Blake Wheeler; he has a team-high 242 shots.
