Medical Report

Apparently, the defenseman needed a break to give his body some rest. He has been dealing with some minor injuries for a while.

For the Winnipeg Jets' last game Sunday night, Luca Sbisa was healthy-scratched. As the Winnipeg Sun now reports, the defenseman did not play due to his body needing some time to heal.

"For about two months I’ve been playing with a few things that don’t feel good. But they are good enough to play. But when you start to miss a lot of practices, I think over the last three, four weeks I’ve probably only had two or three real practices, I think it starts to catch up with you. It’s just a matter of kind of let the body heal a bit more and kind of hit the reset button", the 29-year-old is quoted by the Sun.

Since joining the Jets in late-October, Sbisa has made 33 appearances for the NHL-team, recording two goals and five assists. The Swiss defenseman will likely suit up again for Winnipeg's next game, as their blueline lost another player to injury on Sunday.
