Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice is sticking with the same lineup as his team looks to break out a three-game winless funk.
Paul Stastny will miss an eighth straight game with a bone bruise on his foot, while defenceman Nathan Beaulieu will be the lone healthy scratch, as Winnipeg kicks off a three-game road trip tonight in Columbus.
Connor Hellebuyck gets the start in goal for the 9-5-4 Jets.
Stastny is close to a return, and could be an option for Friday afternoon's game in Minnesota, according to Maurice.
This is the first meeting between the Jets and Blue Jackets since last January's blockbuster trade which saw Pierre-Luc Dubois head north in exchange for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic.
Dubois and Roslovic will be on the ice tonight, while Laine is currently out with an oblique injury.
Puck drop is 6 p.m. CT from Nationwide Arena.
