Exits with injury in third period Laine left Saturday's game against the Flames with an apparent wrist or hand injury in the third period, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.
Impact Laine got into a collision with Flames defenseman Mark Giordano, and the two exchanged jabs after the play. Laine then went down the tunnel and was unable to return to the contest. The Finn was the second Jet to get injured Saturday, after Mark Scheifele (leg) exited the contest in the first period. It's unclear if Laine will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday -- if not, Jansen Harkins or Gabriel Bourque may enter the lineup. After the game, head coach Paul Maurice indicated Laine would see a specialist Sunday to assess the injury, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
