Connor took part in line rushes at the morning skate and was back in his spot on the top line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler. Connor has been great since being called up, recording 17 points (9G / 8A) in 21 games.

The Jets have assigned Kyle Connor to Manitoba (AHL).

Connor, who was the Jets No.17 overall pick in 2015, was expected to crack the opening night roster but fell down the depth chart throughout the preseason. Connor has electrifying potential thanks to his exceptional speed, but the organization obviously feels he needs a little more seasoning in the AHL--plus he doesn't need to clear waivers. The 20-year-old winger had 25 goals and 19 assists (44 points) in 52 AHL games a season ago.

The Jets have placed Kyle Connor (upper-body) on injured reserve.

Connor was injured on a hit from behind by Kings’ forward Kyle Clifford on Sunday and the injury will keep him out for at least one week, which is why he was moved to IR immediately. His movement to IR opened up a roster spot for the Jets’ to recall Chase De Leo from Manitoba (AHL).
