Thank you, thank you. Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien plays to the fans after scoring on a clever bank shot in the first period Friday night at the MTS Centre.

Kira Rae Byfuglien was born at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and weighs seven pounds.

Both baby and mother are fine, the Jets say.

Byfuglien is dealing with a lower body injury and was not at the morning skate prior to tonight’s game with the Los Angeles Kings at MTS Centre. The defenceman, with six goals and 24 points in 35 games, could be out until the New Year, according to Jets Coach Claude Noel.

"He’s probably not day-to-day – he’s more like a week – and then we’ll go from there," the coach said.

In other news on the eve of tonight’s game:

- Patrice Cormier, who was officially recalled by the Jets this morning, participated in the morning skate but his status remains up in the air until game time. The club wants to see how centre Jim Slater is before making a decision on that lineup spot. Slater suffered a rib injury in Tuesday’s 4-1 win in Colorado and is officially listed as a game-time decision. If Slater can’t play, Cormier will draw in on the fourth line, pushing Tim Stapleton up the depth chart.

- Goaltender Chris Mason gets the start for Winnipeg tonight (7:30 p.m.). Mason hasn’t played since Dec. 17, when he backstopped the Jets to a 5-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

- The Kings (18-14-5) are coming into Winnipeg on a bit of a roll, having earned a 2-0 win in Chicago Wednesday night. Los Angeles is looking to remain undefeated in regulation (3-0-1) under new head coach Darryl Sutter, who took over behind the Kings bench 10 days ago.
