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.
