Winnipeg Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers missed Wednesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche because of an undisclosed injury.

After the team’s 4-3 overtime win, associate coach Scott Arniel was asked if Ehlers could play Thursday in Vegas.

“We’re still trying to figure him out here. It’s been nagging. We’ll just discuss it tomorrow and see where it goes,” Arniel said.

The Denmark native had 55 points (28 goals, 27 assists) in 62 games for the Jets last season.

The Jets’ first-round pick (ninth overall) in 2014, Ehlers has 361 points (164 goals, 197 assists) in 480 career games.
