Jets’ Evgeny Svechnikov has become most underutilized forward

It’s become apparent that 25-year-old, Yuzhno-Sakalinsk product, Evgeny Svechnikov has become one of the Winnipeg Jets’ most under-utilized players this season. The former 15th-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft struggled to find his game with the Detroit Red Wings. He found success in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins, where he amassed 101 points (39 goals, 62 assists) in 186 career games. In 2016-17, he helped guide the Griffins to a historic Calder Cup victory, recording 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 19 playoff games.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Ends slump Monday

Svechnikov scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Monday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens. Svechnikov entered Monday on a 10-game point drought and a 19-game goal slump, but he ended both with his game-winning tally in the third period. He received a look in the top six Monday with Mark Scheifele (upper body) and Blake Wheeler (upper body) both out of action. Svechnikov has seen that kind of role occasionally throughout the year, leading to him breaking out for 19 points, 74 shots, 91 hits, 38 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 64 appearances in his first full campaign.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Records helper in win

Svechnikov posted an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Blackhawks. Svechnikov helped out on Jansen Harkins' go-ahead tally in the second period. The assist was Svechnikov's second in as many games, but he had a six-game point drought prior to this stretch. The 25-year-old has been streaky in a variety of roles this season with 18 points, 63 shots, 73 hits, 34 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 53 outings. The Jets reacquired Mason Appleton in a trade with the Kraken on Sunday, so Svechnikov will likely slip back onto the fourth line going forward.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Point streak up to four games

Svechnikov logged an assist, three shots on goal and four hits in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars. Svechnikov set up Kyle Connor's third-period tally. During a four-game point streak, Svechnikov has three goals and three assists. He's been trusted with a middle-six role lately, and he's now at 16 points through 45 contests overall. Despite the recent success, Svechnikov will likely slip down the lineup once Nikolaj Ehlers (knee) is fully back up to speed after a six-week absence.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Ends drought Friday

Svechnikov scored a goal on three shots in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche. Svechnikov entered Friday on a 12-game goal drought, during which he had just one assist. The 25-year-old changed that in the first period, capitalizing on an assist from Josh Morrissey. Were it not for injuries to Andrew Copp (upper body), Cole Perfetti (upper body) and Kristian Reichel (lower body), Svechnikov probably would be fighting for a place in the lineup now. He's posted 11 points, 48 shots on net, 49 hits, 22 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 42 contests, filling a variety of roles as needed throughout the season.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Remains unavailable

Svechnikov (undisclosed) won't play Sunday versus Vegas, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Svechnikov will miss a second straight contest with his undisclosed issue.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Ruled out against Flames

Svechnikov (undisclosed) won't be available versus Calgary on Friday, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Svechnikov was sidelined versus the Blues on Dec. 19 and will now be out of action for a second straight contest. Even once cleared to play, the 25-year-old winger won't offer much in the way of fantasy value considering he has tallied just one goal in his last 23 appearances while registering 32 shots.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Facing extended absence

Svechnikov (undisclosed) will be out longer than day-to-day, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports. The Jets have yet to release a definite timetable for Svechnikov's return, but it's probably safe to assume he'll miss Winnipeg's next few contests at a minimum. The 25-year-old winger has only picked up eight points through 28 appearances this season, so his absence shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups.

Svechnikov was seen laboring multiple times during the contest, eventually leaving midway through the third period. The nature of the 25-year-old's injury is unknown, which makes him questionable ahead of Sunday's game versus the Blues.

Jets' Evgeny Svechnikov: Pots goal in win

Svechnikov scored a goal in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs. The Jets' fourth line got involved with the offense as Svechnikov scored at 4:54 of the second period. The 25-year-old winger has just two points, 19 shots, 13 hits and 10 PIM in his last 11 games. He's slipped into a fourth-line role with the lack of offense, but Svechnikov's doing enough to keep Riley Nash out of the lineup. Svechnikov has eight points, 32 shots, 31 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 23 appearances, matching his scoring output from 21 outings last season.
