Hainsey also in a regular practice jersey.
Certainly a step in the right direction for the two-way defender. Hainsey has only been able to play five games this season.
#winnipegjets had D Ron Hainsey (lower body) back on the ice but he might not be ready to go Tues vs #bruins
Hainsey has only played in five games this season and holds no fantasy hockey value at the moment. He may get some valuable minutes and/or some power play time but he hasn't proven himself healthy all season.

Noel also said that D Ron Hainsey (lower-body) has been downgraded to "a ways away" from "day-to-day"
Absolutely no reason own Hainsey at this point. While he's shown offensive upside in the past, his best season is four years ago.

#winnipegjets D Ron Hainsey is not taking part in the pre-game warm-up, so Arturs Kulda stays on the third pairing with Mark Flood
The defensive pairings stay the same as last night with Hainsey failing to return. As previously mentioned: if you own him, you should explore your options.

Hainsey is gametime decision for Winnipeg tonight vs Bruins.
Hainsey has played only one game since November 17th. The Bolton, Connecticut native has two assists over five games but there are better options than a depth defender in Winnipeg.

#winnipegjets will have veteran D Ron Hainsey back in the lineup vs #Caps and it looks like he'll start the game on pair with Zach Bogosian
Hainsey looks to play in only his fifth game with the Jets. He registered two assists prior to getting injured. Look for rookie Arturs Kulda to draw out.

Defenceman Randy Jones (foot) and Ron Hainsey (upper-body) won’t be ready to return for Tuesday’s game.
If you own either defender, make sure to bench them for tonight's game.
Noel said that defenceman Ron Hainsey (upper-body) wouldn’t be available for at least another week as well, though Hainsey did skate on his own Friday.
With Hainsey out of the lineup, the team will use Derek Meech on the bottom pairing and on the powerplay. With only 19 points last season and 26 the year before, Hainsey's days of fantasy hockey relevance are relatively depleted as a member of the Jets.
Hainsey out with upper body injury, won't return tonight #winnipegjets
No word on the extent of Hainsey's injury. Look for Mark Stuart or Randy Jones to draw back into the lineup should he miss any playing time.
