Winnipeg Jets DFS Spin
Mark Scheifele suffered an upper-body injury Sunday and will not be in the Winnipeg lineup Monday when they face the Montreal Canadiens. Coach Dave Lowry made the announcement after Sunday's game. Scheifele took a hit from Parker Kelly late in the second period and he did not return to action. Scheifele has 29 goals and 70 points in 67 games this season. Reports are it could be his left shoulder. Scheifele will be re-examined when the Jets return home after Monday night's tilt. Consider him day-to-day.

Carey Price (knee) will decide when he is ready to return to the lineup, according to coach Martin St-Louis. The Canadiens interim bench boss said Friday that the team is taking things "day-by-day" with Price, who resumed practicing with the Canadiens on Monday. He had knee surgery last July and appears to be getting close to making his season debut.
