WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — The Winnipeg Jets placed forwards Patrik Laine and Nate Thompson on injured reserve Friday.
Laine has missed the past three games with an upper-body injury. The second overall pick in the 2016 draft, Laine had two goals and an assist in the Jets’ season-opening game before being sidelined.
Thompson suffered a lower-body injury Thursday in a win over the Ottawa Senators. He has been held pointless through four games.
Winnipeg added defenseman Dylan DeMelo to the active roster.
