Jets recall Postma to bolster offence

The Winnipeg Jets have dipped into their reserves for more help for their injury-plagued defensive corps.

The Jets announced Saturday they have recalled defenceman Paul Postma from the St. John’s IceCaps. The club is currently without Dustin Byfuglien and Zach Bogosian, while Mark Flood is ill and may not be available for Saturday afternoon's game against the New Jersey Devils. The Jets may be looking to spice up their attack with Postma’s offensive punch, particularly on the power play.
