WINNIPEG â€” Jets rookie Patrik Laine will be back in the lineup for Winnipeg’s home game against the San Jose Sharks tonight.
Laine has been sidelined since suffering a concussion in a game against Buffalo on Jan. 7 when he was hit by Sabres defenceman Jake McCabe.
Laine, the second-overall pick in the 2016 draft behind Auston Matthews, is third among all NHL rookies in points with 37, including 21 goals.
The 18-year-old Finn is tied for the Jets’ lead in goals with Mark Scheifele.
Laine missed eight games. Winnipeg went 3-4-1 in his absence.
