Jets Byfuglien Out For second straight game

Winnipeg defenseman Dustin Byfuglien will miss his second straight game on Friday with a lower-body injury.

Byfuglien, 27, was held out of Thursdays 6-3 loss to Florida after Jets head coach Claude Noel said he aggravated something prior to the morning skate.

In his place, the Jets called up rookie Zach Redmond, who made his NHL debut and played a whopping 20:56 third most amongst all Winnipeg defensemen.

Byfugliens injury comes at a tough time, as the Jets are in the midst of a condensed part of their schedule.
