Enstrom logged a mere 15:45 of ice time in his return from injury against the Sharks on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

While Enstrom's minutes were well below where fantasy owners might expect them to be -- he's averaged over 20 minutes of ice time throughout his career -- they were no doubt more disappointed with his lack of production. The Swede registered one hit, but was otherwise ineffective in terms of fantasy value. It could take a few outings for the blueliner to get his legs back under him, but don't be surprised to see him back over 20 minutes of action per game in the near future.

Enstrom (lower body) will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Enstrom has missed the Jets' last 23 contests due to a lower-body injury, so he'll likely have some rust to shake off during Sunday's contest. The 33-year-old blueliner, who's picked up two helpers in 19 games this campaign, will skate with Dustin Byfuglien on Winnipeg's second pairing against San Jose.

Enstrom (lower body) -- who was already ruled out Friday against Buffalo -- could be available against the Sharks on Sunday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Enstrom's status will largely be determined by how he responds to the rigors of Saturday's practice session, so fantasy owners can probably consider him a game-time call at this point. When he is cleared to play, the defenseman figures to bounce Ben Chiarot or Dmitry Kulikov from the lineup. The Jets currently have an open spot under the 23-man roster limit, which means they will not need to make a corresponding move in order to activate Enstrom off injured reserve.

Enstrom (lower body) will not feature against the Sabres on Friday, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Enstrom's return may need to wait a little longer, fantasy owners can be encouraged by the fact that he took part in Thursday's practice in a regular sweater. It would seem the blueliner is close to suiting up in a game for the first time since Nov. 18. Once Enstrom is given the green light, Ben Chiarot figures to get bounced from the lineup.

Enstrom (lower body) skated on his own Wednesday, but did not stay on for the Jets' practice session, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given Enstrom's original eight-week timeline, he will likely still be out until mid-January, although getting back on the ice is a positive step. Winnipeg is shockingly thin on the blue line with Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) also unavailable. Prior to getting hurt, Enstrom has tallied a paltry two points in 19 outings and could miss the 20-point mark for the third straight season.

Enstrom (lower body) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as no surprise, since the oft-injured blueliner is expected to be out of commission for the next eight weeks. Expect to see more from Ben Chiarot in Enstrom's stead, but he isn't quite on the Swede's level when it comes to moving the puck and producing offense.

Enstrom suffered a lower-body injury that will sideline him for the next eight weeks, Jamie Thomas of JetsTV reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's no indication as to the nature of the injury or when it occurred, though updates should arrive in the coming days. Enstrom has only two points in 19 games this season, though his defensive play has improved with a curtailing of his average ice time, from close to 22 minutes in 2016-17 down to 16:38 in 2017-18. The Jets are widely expected to recall Tucker Poolman with Enstrom out.

Enstrom is still looking for his first goal of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Enstrom's lack of offensive production extends beyond his inability to find the back of the net considering he has managed a paltry two helpers in 14 outings. The blueliner's drop is points is likely (in part) due to his exclusion from the power play, a role he had previously filled throughout his career. Another contributing factor is certainly the 33-year-old's pairing with Dustin Byfuglien which requires him to stay home defensively, rather than jumping up into the play.

Enstrom (knee) has been given the all clear for training camp, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being healthy, coach Paul Maurice insisted the plan was still to ease Enstrom back into full participation in camp. After agreeing to waiver his no-trade clause in order to expose him for selection in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, the Jets walked back on their stance -- instead protecting the Swede via trade with the Golden Knights. A handful of injuries limited the 32-year-old to just 60 outings last season in which he registered one goal and 13 helpers. Enstrom's value for Winnipeg as a shutdown defender unfortunately doesn't translate into fantasy value outside of perhaps blocked shots (94).

Enstrom (knee) has reportedly protected via a trade to ensure the Golden Knights select somebody else from Winnipeg's roster, per Darren Dreger of TSN.

EDGE Analysis

While there are scant details regarding what or who the Jets will lose instead of Enstrom, fans will likely be celebrating not giving up the Swede. After several offensively productive season earlier in his career, the 32-year-old has focused more on his defensive responsibilities as he has reached the 20-point threshold just once in his past four campaigns. It's possible that Enstrom's fantasy value would have increased in Vegas as he would no longer be paired with the offensive-minded Dustin Byfuglien and may have been tasked with shouldering some of the scoring load, but that ship appears to have sailed.
