Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien returned to the lineup Tuesday versus the Colorado Avalanche after a 10-game absence.

Byfuglien was declared week-to-week with a lower-body injury on Dec. 9 and was replaced by rookie Tucker Poolman on the Jets blue line.

The Jets dropped a 3-2 decision in overtime, but Byfuglien played 25:11, recording three hits. The big defender has 15 assists in 29 games.
