Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice told reporters that forward Patrik Laine will not be in the lineup Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators.
"We don't feel he is ready to go tonight so we will hold him out another day," Maurice said.
Laine missed Monday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs because of an upper-body injury. He left Monday morning's skate early and did the same over the weekend.

TSN's Brent Wallace reports that rookie forward Tim Stützle will miss Tuesday's game against the Winnipeg Jets with a minor injury and is listed as day-to-day.
“Just a little nagging, minor injury that would be more of a day to day situation and we're just being more cautious and anything," Sens head coach D.J. Smith told reporters.
The No. 3 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft scored his first career goal in his second game on Saturday.

Meanwhile, it appears Alex Galchenyuk will take Stützle's spot as he is in a white jersey for Tuesday morning's skate while Colin White is in the grey, likely indicating a healthy scratch. If Galchenyuk indeed plays, it would be his first game as a Senator as he was a healthy scratch in each of his first two games.
