Little will be in the lineup tonight despite missing the morning skate.
Little has missed several skates as of late as he continues to nurse a nagging injury, but it will not keep him out of the lineup tonight. He has been on fire as of late, registering eight goals and 10 assists (18 points) in his last 17 games.
After missing Monday’s practice, Little was back at Jets practice on Tuesday and coach Maurice confirmed that Little will be in the lineup tomorrow vs. the Oilers. Little has three goals and one assist in his last four games, giving him 15 points (8G / 7A) in 25 games on the year.
Little (leg) missed Monday’s practice but is expected to skate on Tuesday.
Little is expected to skate tomorrow and if all goes well he will be in the lineup on Wednesday. He suffered a leg injury late in Friday’s game vs. the Bruins. Monitor his status over the next few days.
Little has missed three games with a foot problem after getting hit with a shot on Dec. 17, and he did not make the trip to Colorado to face the Avalanche.
Sounds like Little will miss a significant chunk of playing time. After posting at least a point in 12 of 12 games, the former 12th overall pick was held scoreless over his last two. He was injured four games ago and had not played since.
