Winnipeg, December 11, 2023 - The Winnipeg Jets pulled a thrilling 4-2 victory out of the hat against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night, securing the top spot of the Central Division. However, the win came with a loss as Kyle Connor was forced off the ice due to a lower body injury sustained in a knee-on-knee collision with Ryan Strome just 27 seconds into the second period.


Gabriel Vilardi netted his first goal as a Jet. Nino Niederreiter, Morgan Barron, and Mark Scheifele also each contributed a goal to the Jets' compelling comeback. Goalkeeper Connor Hellebuyck's stellar performance safeguarded the victory, making 25 saves.



The extent of injury to and the timeline for his return remain uncertain as the Jets look ahead to continue their road trip in San Jose to face the Sharks on Tuesday.\
