WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets have decided centre Mark Scheifele will not stay with them for the rest of the season.
The team announced this morning that it is sending the 19-year-old back to the Barrie Colts of the OHL.
Scheifele, the seventh overall pick of the 2011 draft, played four out of the first nine games for the team, joining them in mid-January after the lockout ended. He had no points.
To that point, the Kitchener, Ont., native had 22 goals and 49 points in 30 games for the Colts.
Last season, the Jets signed Scheifele to an entry-level contract during training camp. He played seven NHL games then before being sent back to his junior team.
