Zach Bogosian was back on the ice with his Winnipeg Jets teammates for the first time since suffering an upper-body injury in a game against the New York Islanders on Feb. 14.
Jets head coach Claude Noel said last week he was hopeful that Bogosian would be back in the lineup early this week and he’s expected to update the status of the mobile blue-liner after the morning skate.
The Jets made one roster move on Monday morning, claiming defenceman Grant Clintsome off waivers from the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Clintsome, who has four goals and 14 points in 51 games this season, has another year on his contract — with a cap hit of $1.25 million.
With Monday’s NHL trade deadline fast approaching, sources say several teams have expressed interest in Jets defenceman Johnny Oduya, who was also on the ice this morning.
Among those expected to be possible suitors for Oduya are the Boston Bruins, New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks and New Jersey Devils.
Fellow defenceman Randy Jones is also believed to be drawing some interest.
The Jets still hold six of their seven picks in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the only one missing is the fourth rounder that was shipped to the Washington Capitals in the deal for forward Eric Fehr.
