The Winnipeg Jets reassigned 21-year-old left-winger Brendan Lemieux to the AHL's Manitoba Moose, the NHL club announced Monday.

Lemieux made his big-league debut earlier this season and appeared in a fourth-line role for his first seven career games for the Jets this season after being recalled on Oct. 17.

He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 29 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but had been a healthy scratch since appearing in a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 4. He had one point and 19 penalty minutes while averaging 7:44 in ice time.

Head coach Paul Maurice said the young pro did a good job in his first stint with Winnipeg (9-4-3).

Hey there, time traveller!

The Winnipeg Jets reassigned 21-year-old left-winger Brendan Lemieux to the AHL's Manitoba Moose, the NHL club announced Monday.

Lemieux made his big-league debut earlier this season and appeared in a fourth-line role for his first seven career games for the Jets this season after being recalled on Oct. 17.

He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 29 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but had been a healthy scratch since appearing in a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 4. He had one point and 19 penalty minutes while averaging 7:44 in ice time.

Head coach Paul Maurice said the young pro did a good job in his first stint with Winnipeg (9-4-3).

"Real good the first time through. He's worked hard in the summer and that was probably the most important thin to happen to him is he got faster. So, lots of good things there," said Maurice. "Energy, he's good. He gets in and gets on it. Physical, not afraid of working in the dark areas, but also a set of hands that I think you'll see more and more as he develops, as he gets more time on the ice."

Lemieux had five points, including three goals, and nine penalty minutes in four games with the Moose earlier this year.

Jets forward Mathieu Perreault has yet to be activated from the injured reserve list but is close to returning to the lineup. Maurice said he likely won't play Tuesday night when the Arizona Coyotes (2-14-3) visit Bell MTS Place.

Connor Hellebuyck will get the start in the Winnipeg net, Maurice confirmed.
