Jets’ Patrik Laine, Mark Scheifele do not participate in practice

Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele collided awkwardly with Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk and was forced to leave the game with an injury.

Neither Mark Scheifele nor Patrik Laine were participants during the Winnipeg Jets‘ practice on Sunday, the team announced.

Forward Mason Appleton also did not participate.

Word of Scheifele and Laine being absent does not come as a surprise after both players suffered injuries in Saturday’s Game 1 loss to the Calgary Flames. During his post-game comments, Jets head coach Paul Maurice said both players would see specialists on Sunday.

Scheifele’s injury occurred in the first period after a collision against the boards with Matthew Tkachuk. The Jets’ star centre was in visible pain immediately and was unable to put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the ice.

Laine left the game mid-way through the third period holding his left hand after a collision with Flames captain Mark Giordano and winger Sam Bennett.

The injury occurred behind the Flames net when the Jets winger collided with both Gioradno and Bennett in quick succession. Laine finished his shift, was caught on camera speaking to a trainer about his hand, and then went back to the Jets’ locker room and didn’t return.

No further information on the severity of their injuries has been made available by the team at this time.

Winnipeg’s series against the Flames resumes Monday.
