Dustin Byfuglien is hurt again.

The Winnipeg Jets defenseman has a new lower-body injury and won't join the club for its upcoming road trip, head coach Paul Maurice told the assembled media, including team reporter Jamie Thomas, after Tuesday's practice.

Maurice said Byfuglien was hurt in Saturday's loss to the Ottawa Senators, and that he'll miss at least the next three contests, according to the Winnipeg Sun's Paul Friesen.

The Jets' road trip will feature matchups against the Colorado Avalanche, the Vegas Golden Knights, and the Arizona Coyotes before the team returns home to face the Minnesota Wild next Tuesday.

Byfuglien is Winnipeg's workhorse, averaging a team-leading 24:26 of ice time per contest. The gargantuan blue-liner has collected 30 points in 37 appearances, but also missed 15 games earlier this season with a leg injury.
