Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice said Wednesday it will be at least another week or two before Nikolaj Ehlers returns to the lineup.

On Monday Maurice said there was a chance Ehlers could return this weekend, but wouldn't call the latest news a setback for the forward. Ehlers has been out since early January with a lower-body injury.

In 40 games for the Jets this season, Ehlers has 15 goals and 12 assists.
