It sounds like the Winnipeg Jets may be about to get healthier and it comes at a very opportune time.

After putting an end to a rough losing streak the Jets will get an infusion to their offense as veteran forward Bryan Little appears set to return to action very soon. Little has missed every game of the season with the exception of the season opener which saw him knocked out of the game with a "lower-body injury."

"(I feel) good," Little said as per NHL.com. "To actually get in there, play on a line and get some bumping and a real practice under my belt… If it was up to me, yes (he would play tomorrow). That was my plan today, to see if everything went well, would I feel comfortable playing.

"Everything went well today, so…"

Despite a rash of injuries that have frustrated both Little and the Jets organization he is an incredibly important cog in their offense, producing 42 points last season despite missing over 25 games due to injury, and his return to the line up will surely bolster the Jets as they look to return to their winning ways.
