Rotowire: Mar 26 / 10:26a ET
News: Harrison will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Canadiens, 680 CJOB Sports reports.
Impact: Dustin Byfuglien's return from an upper-body injury will bounce Harrison from the lineup for the first time since Feb. 21. With only nine points across 50 games this season and meager hit and PIM totals to boot, Harrison's absence from the lineup should go largely unnoticed in the fantasy realm.
Rotowire: Mar 24 / 10:38a ET
News: Harrison registered an assist in Monday's 4-1 win over the Oilers.
Impact: Harrison is a depth defenseman who doesn't provide much puck magic. However, he does have 63 penalty minutes this season, making him an acceptable option if your league heavily rewards time spent in the sin bin.
Rotowire: Feb 24 / 12:43p ET
News: Harrison (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Stars, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Impact: Harrison will play his first game since Jan. 27, though he's seemingly been at full health for two weeks now. The Jets had been carrying nine healthy defensemen of late, but with Ben Chiarot (upper body) set to miss the next six weeks and Dustin Byfuglien moving back to forward, an opening for Harrison to suit up now exists. He'll join Adam Pardy on the Jets' third defensive pairing.
