Jankowski’s callup likely means that an injury to Kris Versteeg which occurred in practice on Thursday is serious enough for him to miss more time.
Jankowski has played in 13 games for the Heat this season, tallying 12 points. There’s some discussion that he could be playing tonight against the Bruins but it seems unlikely. Will probably be either Sunday against Philly or Monday against the Islanders, but we’ll have to wait and see when the lineups are released.
For a player who many questioned about his potential to make the NHL, that part of his career could start tonight or in the next few days! Stay tuned for all of today’s gameday coverage.
