Mark Scheifele (Achilles) says that he's 100 percent healthy right now.
Scheifele was injured in Game 1 of Winnipeg's qualifying round series against Calgary when Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk's skate clipped his Achilles. The Jets feared that Scheifele's Achilles was torn, but the injury wasn't as severe as they thought. "I'm 100 percent, no question," Scheifele said on Tuesday. "Skating every day. I don't know anyone who skates more than I do. I love being on the ice. That's my No. 1 thing. I get on the ice as much as I can. I'm not a guy who likes to take much time off [in the offseason]. I think I was three weeks off the ice once I got home. I did a ton of rehab on it, lots of treatment, got it back to normal." That's great news for Scheifele and the Jets. The 27-year-old had 29 goals and 73 points in 71 games last season. He's one of the true impact forwards in the NHL right now. Nov 03 11:21 pm (EST)
