Jets’ Adam Lowry forced out of game vs. Maple Leafs with injury

Adam Lowry is done for the game as Alex Galchenyuk makes contact with Lowry's head.

Winnipeg Jets centre Adam Lowry suffered an undisclosed injury against the Toronto Maple Leafs and was unable to finish Thursday’s game.

The Jets did not disclose any information on Lowry’s injury, but his final shift of the game — late in the first period — ended after a high hit from Toronto’s Alex Galchenyuk near the Maple Leafs’ blue line. Galchenyuk was not given a penalty on the play.

Lowry has emerged as an important player for the Jets in recent years as the team’s third-line centre and recently signed a five-year, $16.25-million contract extension. The 28-year-old has eight goals and 20 points in 46 games this season, while winning just under 50 per cent of his faceoffs.

“Hopefully I can live up to my end of the bargain and provide solid value for us,” Lowry said after signing his extension. “You look at the makeup of our team, I believe we’re close to having a team that has a chance to challenge for the Stanley Cup and I’m really looking forward to that.”
