The Winnipeg Jets got some bad news Sunday when Nik Antropov was unable to pass his physical due to an upper-body injury, according to the Winnipeg Sun.

Antropov played in 26 games with the KHL's Astana Barys during the lockout and Jets coach Cluade Noel described his status as "day-to-day."

"He'll be assessed during the week, whether he's able to play on Saturday will be determined," Noel added. "We're hopeful he that he will."

Antropov had 15 goals and 35 points in 69 games last season.
