Winnipeg Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien is week-to-week with a lower-body injury, according to head coach Paul Maurice.

Byfuglien sustained the injury during Saturday night’s 4-3 overtime loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Defenceman Tucker Poolman will draw back into the lineup in his place after spending the previous 11 games as a healthy scratch.

In 28 games this season, Byfuglien has no goals and 15 assists.
