#NHLJets Paul Postma confirms he will play tonight in place of Toby Enstrom. Says Enstrom is fine, but he is still a little sore.
Enstrom won't play tonight after getting nicked up in his last game when he took a big hit in the defensive zone. He left the game and did not return. He didn't participate in practice this morning so he is clearly still banged up. He isn't expected to miss an extended period of time, he will probably be back on Tuesday vs. Tampa Bay.
Enstrom left yesterday's game after taking a hard hit in the first period and did not return.
Jets coach Claude Noel said afterward Enstrom is day-to-day after "it just seized up. It's just something that happens when you put stress on muscles." It doesn't sound like Enstrom's injury is too serious.
#NHLJets Noel says Toby Enstrom "looks like he is turning the corner..." Might play tomorrow night.
Enstrom has not played since February 15th. He had 13 points in 13 games before getting hurt. He is an exceptional passer but he will not score a lot of goals. He rarely shoots the puck, he had just 9 shots in those 13 games.
Toby Enstrom was wearing regular colours at Tuesday's game-day practice, having dumped the orange 'no-contact' jersey.
The Jets haven't set a time frame for Enstrom's return, but will have to first see if he can handle contact on the injured shoulder that has kept him out of the lineup for 17 games. "We'll see in the next couple of days coming up here. The last couple of days I've been feeling great and skating with the team. It's been a tough couple of weeks here and I'll be happy to be back playing soon." Enstrom said.

Enstrom hasn't played since February 15th because of a shoulder injury. It appears he is nearing a return to the Jets lineup. He was on a point-per-game pace (2 G, 11 A in 13 games) before getting hurt.
#NHLJets D Toby Enstrom says he is feeling pretty good, wants to get back as soon as possible but there is still no timetable for his return.
Enstrom skated this morning in a no-contact jersey, which indicates he is nearing a return. He hasn't played since February 15th because of a shoulder injury. He was having a great season with two goals and 11 assists in 13 games before getting hurt.
#NHLJets Enstrom just over a week away from returning. In that ballpark.
Enstrom hasn't played since injuring his shoulder vs. Pittsburgh. Enstrom had an awesome season going before getting hurt, he had two goals and 11 assists in 13 games. He is still at least a week away from returning, but this is good news that he should be back on the Jets blueline in the near future.
The Winnipeg Jets still don’t know how severe Toby Enstrom’s shoulder injury is or how long it will keep him out of the lineup.
Enstrom won't be in the lineup when the Jets host the Boston Bruins on Sunday night at MTS Centre. “He has a shoulder issue that will put him out for a little while,” head coach Claude Noel said. Monitor his status going forward to find out how serious his injury is.
