Winnipeg Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers is one tough customer.
The 23-year-old played Game 6 of the Jets’ opening-round series against the St. Louis Blues with a fractured leg, according to the Winnipeg Sun’s Scott Billeck.
Ehlers said he suffered the injury after blocking a shot near the end of Game 5. The pesky winger logged 9:01 of ice time over nine shifts in Game 6.
The Dane failed to find the scoresheet in the Jets’ first-round series loss and has yet to register a goal in 21 career postseason contests.
