The Winnipeg Jets have recalled forward Kristian Vesalainen from the AHL’s Manitoba Moose, the team announced on Monday.

Vesalainen has scored nine goals and 22 points in 44 games this season in the AHL with the Moose.

He has not played an NHL game this season after making his debut last year, recording one point in five games after splitting most of his time between the KHL and AHL.

The 20-year-old was selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft by the Jets.
