Jets Journal: Getting healthy

Enstrom, Hainsey and Fehr all day-to-day

After a disappointing 7-1 loss in Detroit on Saturday night, the Winnipeg Jets went back to work on Monday morning at the MTS Centre. They took a few minutes before practice to go over some tape of the Saturday night game before taking part in an intense and lengthy practice to prepare for their next opponent, the Minnesota Wild.

Head Coach Claude Noel said although they needed to take a look and learn from the tough 7-1 loss, they have all moved on and put that one behind them.

"We watched some tape today and reviewed the first period," explained Noel. "We did some good things, and we learned some things from that game that were positive, and then we moved past the game. Today was more of a day we wanted to work on some things specific to us getting better.

"We have to get back to winning. It's only one game, I'm not going to beat it up. We just need to get back to winning and that will be the challenge tomorrow. They are a good team and we know that we've played good teams and won so we have to find a way to do it again tomorrow."


INJURY UPDATES

A few positives in the injury department today as Tobias Enstrom took part in his first full practice sporting a full contact jersey, however, he will not be ready to play Tuesday night against the Wild.

"It feels good so I'm going to talk to the trainers and see what the plan is," said Enstrom. "I'd like to get back as soon as possible. I've been out for awhile and I really miss the game. I've been practicing for awhile and my shoulder feels good and everything feels great and I'm really looking forward to getting back out there and play."

Both Ron Hainsey and Eric Fehr were on the ice today but Nik Antropov and Dustin Byfuglien were not present.

"Time will tell, we'll see how I feel tomorrow," said Fehr. "I was just taking a couple maintenance days because I was feeling a little sore. I felt pretty good today and hopefully get back at it again soon. It's my second shoulder surgery in three years. It feels pretty tight some days so I don't want to aggravate it or push it over the edge. I want to make sure I'm ready to go for the second half of the season."

Hainsey's injury is definitely a weird one. He has a cut on his ankle on a spot that doesn't heal very quickly and is very easy aggravated by his skate. He has been very close to returning to the lineup however keeps having setbacks with the injury.

"It's a weird spot and a weird cut," said Hainsey. "The swelling comes and goes but if it's alright tomorrow we'll reevaluate."

"I'm going to have to wait on all of the guys," said Noel. "it's day-to-day on all of them. There is a buffet of guys that I'm waiting on for tomorrow. I'm not sure who's in and who's going to be out."
