(Winnipeg) Speedy skater Nicolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets will miss a third straight playoff game on Saturday against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Head coach Rick Bowness said Ehlers still hasn’t been cleared by doctors to join his teammates on the ice for a game.
Ehlers practiced with the team in Nevada, but still missed Tuesday’s game, which the Jets won 5-1, and Thursday’s game, which the Golden Knights won 5-2.
Game 4 is Monday night in Manitoba.
Ehlers was injured in the April 11 game against the Minnesota Wild following a hit by Ryan Hartman when the Denmark forward was out of possession.
