The Winnipeg Jets will have an added weapon tonight in trying to shut down Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins — Zach Bogosian.

The 22-year-old defenseman will make his regular season debut tonight for Winnipeg, coming off wrist surgery that has sidelined him for the first 12 games of the year.

Bogosian will skate alongside veteran blueliner Ron Hainsey.

The former first-round pick (third overall, 2008) had a career year in 2011-12, recording 5G-25A-30PTS in 65 games while averaging over 23 minutes per game.

Tonight will also mark the Jets debut of Eric Tangradi, acquired from Pittsburgh earlier this week.

It looks as though Tangradi will skate on Winnipeg’s third line alongside Olli Jokinen and Kyle Wellwood.
