Jets’ Tobias Enstrom to have knee surgery

Winnipeg Jets forward Blake Wheeler comments on the frustration of missing the playoffs after an overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tobias Enstrom will have knee surgery on Thursday, according to coach Paul Maurice.

Enstrom, 31, scored twice and added 14 assists this season for the Jets (29-37-6).

Winnipeg recalled defenceman Julian Melchiori on an emergency basis in a corresponding move.

Melchiori played 16:30 against the Vancouver Canucks on March 14 — his only NHL game this season.
