Top Ville Heinola News

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Headed for minors

    Heinola (ankle) has been medically cleared and will be reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Thursday, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    Heinola will suit up for the first time this season with the Moose but will have to wait a while to make his NHL season debut. Over the last four seasons, the 22-year-old blueliner has logged just 25 NHL contests. As such, fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him featuring prominently for the Jets this year.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Making California trip

    Heinola (ankle) will join the Jets for their upcoming three-game road trip, John Lu of TSN reports Tuesday.

    Heinola was originally expected to not return prior to the team's trip but may have taken an additional step in his recovery. Still, the 22-year-old blueliner's presence on the trip doesn't guarantee he will get into the lineup. Whenever Heinola is cleared to play, he will need to be activated off injured reserve, which will likely result in Declan Chisholm or Logan Stanley being shipped down to the minors.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Return not imminent

    Heinola (ankle) is expected to miss at least the next five games, John Lu of TSN reports Friday.

    Heinola will have to wait until the calendar flips to 2024 to make his season debut after suffering his ankle injury during the preseason. It's unclear if the defender suffered a setback in his recovery but he has already passed his initial 8-12 week recovery timeline.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Begins skating Tuesday

    Heinola (ankle) was on the ice without gear Tuesday but isn't yet nearing a return, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Heinola was given a 2-3 month recovery timeline in October and is still on track to meet that target, according to coach Rick Bowness. Considering the 22-year-old defender has a combined 35 NHL games over the last four seasons, he will probably head to the minors once given the all-clear and figures to remain a fringe roster player.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Out 8-12 weeks

    The Jets placed Heinola (fractured ankle) on injured reserve Friday.

    The 22-year-old defenseman suffered a serious injury in Thursday's preseason game versus the Senators and is expected to miss 8-12 weeks. Heinola played in only 10 NHL games with the Jets last season, picking up one assist.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Injury considered serious

    Heinola's left leg injury suffered in Thursday's game versus the Senators is considered a longer-term injury, John Lu of TSN reports.

    The Jets will know more following an evaluation Friday, but Heinola's chances of playing Opening Night versus the Flames on Wednesday are essentially gone. The 22-year-old defenseman could be a candidate for injured reserve depending on what his evaluation Friday returns.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Exits with lower-body injury

    Heinola sustained a lower-body injury in Thursday's preseason game versus the Senators, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Heinola went awkwardly into the boards on a hit and ultimately needed help to get to the locker room with a visible limp. With injuries piling up on the Jets' blue line, Heinola was pushing for a roster spot out of camp, but this injury may jeopardize that. His status should be updated prior to Opening Night on Wednesday versus the Flames.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Sent to AHL

    Heinola was assigned to AHL Manitoba on Tuesday.

    In a corresponding move, Winnipeg activated Logan Stanley (lower body) from injured reserve. Heinola has one assist, five shots on goal, seven blocks and seven hits in 10 games with the Jets this season.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Up with Jets

    Heinola was called up by Winnipeg from AHL Manitoba on Monday.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Sent to AHL Manitoba

    Heinola (illness) was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Friday.

    Heinola has been ill all week and has sat out the last four games. He has one assist in eight games this season at the NHL level, while picking up 10 assists in 13 AHL contests. The 21-year-old needs lots of playing time and should get that in the AHL.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Remains sidelined versus Sabres

    Heinola (illness) will not be ready to face Buffalo on Thursday, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    At this point, it seems doubtful that Heinola will be ready for the second game of the Jets' back-to-back versus the Penguins on Friday either, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. Even once cleared to play, Heinola may not be able to break into the lineup and could find himself watching from the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Unavailable Tuesday

    Heinola will sit out Tuesday's game against Detroit with an illness, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Heinola, who was initially expected to play, will be a late scratch for the contest. He has one assist, four shots on goal, seven blocks and five hits in eight outings with the Jets this season. Dylan Samberg will play instead.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Skates on third pairing

    Heinola earned a plus-1 rating during a 5-1 victory over the visiting Senators on Tuesday.

    Heinola, who dressed for the first time since Nov. 23, received a season-high 15:39 of ice time, mostly paired with Dylan Samberg. The 2019 first-round draft pick has competed in three games with the Jets this season, but he still seeks his first shot on goal. Heinola replaced Kyle Capobianco, who was scratched, in Tuesday's lineup.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Healthy but not playing

    Heinola (illness) is expected to be a healthy scratch Sunday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Heinola missed Saturday's game against the Canucks due to an illness and now he'll watch from the press box as a healthy scratch. If the Jets don't plan on using him at the NHL level any time soon, the 21-year-old blueliner could head back to AHL Manitoba.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Sidelined with illness

    Heinola (illness) won't play Saturday versus Vancouver, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Although Heinola will miss Saturday's contest, he could be available for Sunday's matchup with Seattle. The 21-year-old defender has gone scoreless through two NHL appearances this year.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Emergency recall from AHL

    Heinola was recalled from AHL Manitoba on an emergency basis Friday.

    Heinola has only played a pair of games with the Jets this season and was recalled after Nate Schmidt was placed on injured reserve with a concussion suffered Thursday. Heinola has 10 assists in 13 games with AHL Manitoba this season.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Dropped to minors

    Heinola was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Sunday.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Back with Winnipeg

    Heinola was recalled from AHL Manitoba on Thursday, according to John Lu of TSN.

    Heinola was recalled when the Jets placed Mason Appleton on the injured reserve list with a wrist injury. Heinola has seven assists in 11 AHL games this season. The 21-year-old defenseman has played 25 NHL games in his career, scoring once and adding nine helpers.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Sent back to AHL affiliate

    Heinola was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Thursday.

    This move is likely one to get Heinola playing time -- he had three assists in four games during a recent run of play, but he was a healthy scratch Wednesday versus the Red Wings. With Nate Schmidt clear of the COVID-19 protocols, Heinola was the odd man out. The 21-year-old could finish the year with the Moose unless injuries arise on the Jets' blue line.

  • Jets' Ville Heinola: Delivers helper in loss

    Heinola posted an assist, two shots on goal, a plus-2 rating and two PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    Heinola has played four games in a row, and he's picked up an assist in three of them. The 21-year-old defenseman is showing his strong offensive instincts, though he could see a reduced role once Nate Schmidt (COVID-19 protocols) returns to the lineup. Heinola has five helpers, 25 shots, 10 PIM and a minus-2 rating in 12 contests overall.
