From TSN.ca:

The Winnipeg Jets may have to move forward without Mark Scheifele for a while.

Though the Jets have not confirmed any updates to Scheifele’s status, TSN Hockey Analyst Aaron Ward says early reports indicate he suffered an MCL injury and will likely out 6-8 weeks.

If true, it’s a considerable blow for the Jets, who are in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the West. Scheifele has been a big part of Winnipeg’s improved play. After a slowish start to the season, the 20-year-old has 25 points in his last 35 games.

Scheifele was hurt in yesterday’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
