Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers has eye injury, without a timetable to return

Winnipeg Jets winger Nikolaj Ehlers' visor broke when he was struck by the puck Thursday night against the New York Islanders, resulting in an eye injury.

What It Means:

Ehlers has blood in his eye chamber, but beyond that, the severity of his injury is still being determined. He'll be shutdown completely until the blood dissipates, which means he won't be engaging in any off-ice activities. Winnipeg has called up J.C. Lipon for now.

Ehlers has 31 points (13 goals, 18 assists) in 63 games played this season and has been good at driving possession. His Corsi For Percentage is 54.8, and his Relative Corsi For at Even Strength is 3.7. We had projected Ehlers to tally another nine points (four points, five assists) over the remaining course of the season, but with the playoffs out of reach for the Jets, there's no need to rush Ehlers back.
