The Winnipeg Jets have recalled centre Aaron Gagnon from the St. John's IceCaps.

Gagnon, who missed training camp due to injury, has eight goals and 20 points in 32 games for the IceCaps.

It's not known if Gagnon was recalled to replace an injured player or to shake things up for the offensively challenged Jets. Head coach Claude Noel will meet with the media on Tuesday afternoon.

Winnipeg also placed left-winger Evander Kane on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 19. Kane is out with a concussion.

The Jets will battle the New York Rangers on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
