Official update from the team.

The Winnipeg Jets have officially updated the status of their injured superstar.

The Jets announced on Tuesday that rookie forward Patrik Laine would be making his return to action for the first time since taking a huge hit from Jake McCabe when the Jets played the Buffalo Sabres.

The Jets currently find themselves three points out of a playoff spot and have felt the need to call up Ondrej Pavelec from the American Hockey League as their goaltenders struggle, so it goes without saying that the return of Laine will be very welcome news for the Jets fan base.

Laine's return will be in the Jets home arena, the MTS Center, when they face off against a very tough San Jose Sharks squad this evening.
