Jets' Little out for Season with Fractured Vertebrae
A play that made waves last week in the NHL unfortunately is making waves a week later. The Winnipeg Jets announced that Bryan Little has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a fractured vertebrae suffered in a collision with Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman.
Coach Maurice announced Bryan Little is out for the season (compression fractured vertebrae). #NHLJets recall Halischuk from @ManitobaMoose.
