Published April 23, 2023 at 9:08

The Winnipeg Jets are currently locked in a fierce battle with the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference playoffs, with both teams fighting for the chance to move on to the next round. Despite the series being tied, the Jets are facing an uphill battle as the Knights have all the necessary tools to mount a comeback, aided by their head coach Bruce Cassidy.

During the game against Vegas, Winnipeg Jets' defenseman Josh Morrissey, also known as Josh "Norrissey" by some fans, had to leave the ice due to a lower-body injury. Morrissey initially returned to the bench after taking a hit from Vegas Golden Knights' defenseman Zach Whitecloud, but he was forced to exit the game and will not return for the rest of the series. The exact nature of the injury has not been specified, but it has been confirmed to be serious enough to sideline Morrissey for the remainder of the series.

This news comes as a major blow to the Jets, as Morrissey has had a standout season with 16 goals and 60 assists for a total of 76 points in 78 games. The team will have to regroup and find a way to compensate for the loss of Morrissey's presence on the ice. Fans will undoubtedly be watching closely to see how the Jets adjust their strategy for the remainder of the series against the Golden Knights.
