WINNIPEG - The clock is ticking and the Winnipeg Jets roster is finally taking shape.
As the Jets hit the ice at Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre on Sunday, the line combinations, defence pairings and final cuts were coming into focus.
Prior to the workout, the Jets placed forward Patrice Cormier and defenceman Adam Pardy on waivers.
If they clear by Monday, both are expected to be sent to the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League
That would bring the Jets roster -- due by 4 p.m. CT on Monday -- down to 24, one more than the maximum they'll be allowed to start the season with.
There was some intrigue Sunday, as defenceman Dustin Byfuglien didn't take part in the 75-minute workout.
Byfuglien, who went into the boards with just under seven minutes left in the third period of a 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins and went to the dressing room favouring his left knee, came out prior to practice to test the lower-body injury for about 10 minutes
