Halischuk (illness) will actually play in Sunday's game against the Ducks, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

An earlier report indicated he would likely be replaced in Sunday's lineup due to an illness following the emergency recall of Chase De Leo, but it will actually Marko Dano (undisclosed) who will miss the contest. Still, the winger hasn't tallied a point in 22 games this season and averages just 8:46 of ice time, so he shouldn't be in fantasy consideration.

Halischuk is dealing with an illness that could cost him Sunday's game against the Ducks, Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even when healthy, Halischuk provides little to get excited about in fantasy. Assuming he skips out Sunday, the Jets have recalled Chase De Leo on emergency conditions to take his place. Expect another update on his status when he does return to the lineup.

Halischuk was called up from AHL Manitoba on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Halischuk was summoned to the parent club in the wake of news that Bryan Little (head) is out for the season. It'll be interesting to see how long the recall lasts for Halischuk, as he's 27 years old and has yet to earn a full-time role with the Jets. At any rate, he's an attractive call-up based on his ability to play on either the left or right wing.

Halischuck was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Halischuck played 13 games with the Jets since being called up Dec. 17 and did not record a point. The 27-year-old winger was likely sent to Manitoba to make room on the roster for forwards Adam Lowry and Mathieu Perreault who were both activated from the injured reserve list Tuesday. It is unclear when or if Halischuk will be called back up again.

Halischuk will be waived by the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets host the Stars on Tuesday and need room on the roster with Adam Lowry (upper body) and Mathieu Perrault (lower body) returning to action. Halischuk is the odd man out of that equation as he's failed to nail down more than a part-time role since joining the league in 2008-09.

Halischuk was recalled by the Jets on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Hahlischuk will provide the Jets with some forward depth following the placement of Mark Scheifele on injured reserve Wednesday. Coincidentally, he was sent back to AHL Manitoba earlier in January due to the activation of Scheifele off IR, but will now rejoin the parent club. Regardless, the winger is a speculative play on a daily basis, and averaged just 7:34 of ice time over the seven games he's drawn in with the Jets this season.

Halischuk was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Halischuk's demotion coincides with Mark Scheifele's activation from injured reserve, meaning Scheifele will likely return to the lineup Sunday against Anaheim. Halischuk failed to make an impact during his six games with the Jets, failing to score a point while registering a minus-1 rating. Former first-round pick Joel Armia has seemingly jumped over Halischuk in the Jets' organizational depth chart.

Halischuk was recalled by the Manitoba Moose of the AHL on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Halischuk is an NHL veteran, playing 250 career games, with 93 of those coming with the Jets from 2013-15. The gritty winger scored 15 goals with Nashville in 2011-12, but his production has tailed off in recent seasons, failing to score more than five goals in a season since then. Halischuk will likely skate on the Jets' fourth line until Adam Lowry is recalled from Manitoba.

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.
