Jets' Connor hurt after knee-on-knee hit
Early in the second, Ducks forward Ryan Strome delivered a hit to Connor's right knee just after the Jets star fired a backhand shot while cutting across the ice. Ducks goaltender John Gibson froze the puck on the shot attempt and Mark Scheifele dropped the gloves with Strome, who was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit.

Connor appeared to struggle putting weight on his knee and went straight down the tunnel after leaving the ice. He had three shots on goal in 7:56 of action before departing as the Jets went on to win the game 4-2.
The 27-year-old had 17 goals and 11 assists for 28 points in 25 games entering play Sunday.
Winnipeg will be back in action on Tuesday in San Jose against the Sharks.
