Jets Injury Update: Zach Bogosian suffers lower-body injury, considered day-to-day

By on 10/03/2014 08:30:00 AM

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian left Thursday night's preseason game with a lower-body injury. After the game, head coach Paul Maurice said that Bogosian is day-to-day, as reported by Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.

The good news for the team is that it was for precautionary reasons. The Jets open the season on October 9 when they visit the Arizona Coyotes, which gives Bogosian a week to recover.

The 24-year-old defenseman just can't stay healthy. He appeared in only 55 games last season due to injury as well. In his six years in the NHL, he's essentially played in one full season. He has missed many games in his last four seasons due to various injuries.

Bogosian finished the 2013-14 season with three goals and eight assists in those 55 games, with a plus-3 rating. He remained steady at around 23 minutes of ice-time per game.

After being the third overall pick in the 2008 entry draft, his career has been disappointing to say the least up to now. He had very strong offensive and defensive upside, and the Winnipeg Jets are still hoping he can find his game and become that player.
