  • Print

WINNIPEG Jets defenceman Mark Stuart has left Winnipeg, where he has been working out with teammates during the NHL lockout, and joined the ECHL's Florida Everblades. Stuart, 28, a veteran of five full NHL seasons, makes his Everblades debut tonight in Cincinnati.

After a stint with Salzberg in the Austrian league, Jets defenceman Toby Enstrom is back in Winnipeg.

Enstrom was at the MTS Iceplex Tuesday working out with his teammates and several other NHLers.

Mark Scheifele's availability for the entire World Junior tournament remains an ongoing discussion, according to the Winnipeg Jets.

The conversation with Hockey Canada is taking place, the Jets said late Tuesday, on the assumption that their first-round pick of the 2011 draft makes Team Canada, and that the NHL and NHLPA might solve their labour dispute before the tournament ends on Jan. 5.

Late Tuesday, a report appeared on social media that Scheifele had received a "green light" to stay the entire tournament with Team Canada, no matter what the CBA situation.

Asked for confirmation, Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said through his media-relations department on Tuesday night that the decision has not yet been made.
