Hendricks scored in a 7-4 victory against the Golden Knights on Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old's goal in the second tied the game at 2, but then the Jets offense exploded in the third period. Hendricks has three goals and six points through 19 games, but his shooting percentage is a whopping 21.4 percent. He isn't getting enough shots to the net to stay fantasy relevant.

Hendricks picked up a helper against Minnesota on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks -- a native of Blaine, Minnesota and St. Cloud State product -- no doubt enjoyed scoring a point while on the road versus the Wild in a decisive 7-3 victory. Although the veteran's numbers have been limited (two goals and three assists), he is actually on pace to record the second highest point total of his career, with the 20-point threshold not out of the question.

Hendricks (undisclosed) was taken off injured reserve Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With the Jets demoting Nicolas Petan in a corresponding move, Hendricks's skill set leaves him as the most viable option for the fourth-line center role and should be considered a near lock for that spot against the Penguins on Thursday. If he is in the game-day lineup, it would be the 2017-18 season debut for the Minnesota native. The lefty tallied just seven points in 42 outings last year, and probably shouldn't be relied on for much more than 20 points -- a threshold he has broken just once in his career.

Hendricks (undisclosed) has not been cleared to face the Blue Jackets on Tuesday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks has yet to make an appearance for the Jets this season and while he would likely be a healthy scratch under ideal conditions, the absences of Mathieu Perreault (lower body) and Adam Lowry (upper body) could have opened the door for the 36-year-old to crack the game-day lineup. In the meantime, Winnipeg will likely need to call-up a player from AHL Manitoba to provide some additional depth.

Hendricks (foot) skated by himself ahead of Wednesday's team session, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hendrick remains on injured reserve and is without a timeline to return to action. Even once cleared, the 36-year-old could be inline for a demotion to AHL Manitoba given the depth at the wing position in Winnipeg.

Hendricks was placed on injured reserve Monday with an undisclosed injury, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the IR tag, Hendricks is still considered day-to-day with the designation allowing the Jets to avoid making an additional roster cut before Tuesday's deadline. Unfortunately for the winger, it could be him facing the axe once given the all clear.

Hendricks signed a one-year contract worth $700,000 on Saturday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks, 36, is headed into his 10th consecutive NHL-only season. The veteran center is known for his keen leadership, which figures to be helpful for a Jets team that boasts one of the youngest lineups in the league. He finished last season with four goals and three assists in 42 games, and he was often the favorite to be a healthy scratch. Hendricks figures to see around 60 games this season, and there's not much foreseeable fantasy value.

Hendricks will not return to the Oilers, but will look to land with another NHL club, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks spent parts of four seasons with Edmonton as a bottom-six role player. This past year, however, the center was frequently relegated to the press box as he appeared in just 42 outings. Never known as a scorer -- he has 100 points in 521 career outings -- the 35-year-old could be a fit for a younger team in need of veteran leadership.

Hendricks will not be in the lineup Wednesday night against the Ducks, Jack Michaels of Oilers Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks reportedly will give way to Anton Slepyshev on the fourth line in the upcoming contest. Both guys have been poor fantasy options this season simply due to their limited roles.

Hendricks had a goal and an assist Thursday against the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

Hendricks' 14:40 played was his most in a game since Dec. 21, but the blowout nature of this 6-3 affair likely had a lot to do with that increased ice time. The depth forward has scored in consecutive games after tallying a single point in his previous 15.
