  • Little is expected to make a full recovery, but a timeline is unknown to this point, Maurice added.
  • The Winnipeg Jets forward received “25-30 stitches” after he took an errant Nik Ehlers blast right off the side of the head in a scary incident that saw him leave the ice in agony
  • The Jets said on Wednesday that Little was taken to St. Boniface hospital before being transferred to HSC hospital, where he remains at the time of this writing.
