He didn’t return to the game.

Midway through the second period, Scheifele was lightly pushed by Oilers defenceman Brandon Davidson and crashed hard into the boards. He was seen writhing in pain, favouring his right arm afterwards and left the ice heading for the dressing room with trainers in tow.

There was no penalty assessed on the play.

Scheifele entered Wednesday’s action as the Jets’ second-leading scorer with 37 points and 15 goals.

He added to his point total earlier in the game, assisting on a Kyle Connor before his exit.
