The Winnipeg Jets have placed forward Pierre-Luc Dubois on injured reserve due to a lower-body injury, the team announced Wednesday.

The move is retroactive, as Sportsnet's Ken Wiebe points out, and does not rule Dubois out from returning for Winnipeg's game at the Vancouver Canucks on Friday.

Dubois has missed the Jets' last two games after "something tightened up on him" during practice last Friday. The 22-year-old has been held pointless while averaging 15:18 of ice time in the pair of contests since joining Winnipeg last month in a blockbuster trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Jets (9-5-1) visit Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers (9-8-0) on Wednesday in a North Division clash on Sportsnet West at 9 p.m. CT/8 p.m. MT.
