News: Tlusty scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.
Impact: Tlusty hasn't done much offensively since being acquired by Winnipeg in late February, but has now registered a point in two straight contests. He's still locked into a third-line role at the moment. However, if his recent production is a sign of things to come, the 27-year-old may be in line for some additional ice time going forward.

News: Tlusty picked up an assist in Monday's win over the Oilers.
Impact: The 27-year-old hasn't provided much of an impact since being acquired by the Jets in late February. Over 11 games with his new team, Tlusty is still searching for his first goal and has produced only four assists and 15 shot attempts. Locked into a third-line role at the moment, Tlusty doesn't project to see much of an uptick in his offensive totals over the final stretch of the regular season.
