Jets' Vilardi returns to practice wearing regular jersey


Winnipeg Jets forward Gabriel Vilardi was on the practice ice on Tuesday morning wearing a regular jersey. 

The 24-year-old has been sidelined since Feb. 29 after suffering an upper-body injury against Dallas Stars.

On March 15, head coach Rick Bowness announced that Vilardi was also receiving treatment for an enlarged spleen and would be out indefinitely.

Vilardi has 16 goals and 30 points in 38 games for the Jets this season, his first with the team. He was acquired as part of Winnipeg's return in the off-season for centre Pierre-Luc Dubois.

Selected 11th overall in the 2017 draft by the Los Angeles Kings, the Kingston, Ont. native has 57 goals and 108 points in 190 career games.

Bowness returned to practice on Tuesday as well after undergoing a minor medical procedure last week.
