The Winnipeg Jets lost a key piece to their roster on Wednesday when the team announced forward Mathieu Perreault will be out of the lineup likely until the post-season.
Perreault was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and the club recalled forward Carl Klingberg from the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.
Perreault was injured less than five minutes into Monday's game against the Edmonton Oilers after taking a hit along the boards by defenceman Jeff Petry. He had to be helped from the ice by teammates and training staff.
To make matters worse, the Jets lost winger Drew Stafford to an upper-body injury on the same night Perreault was injured.
The Jets didn't have an update on Stafford's status.
Voracek received two minutes for an illegal check to the head.

... fallout from Friday's game includes the loss of red-hot Jets forward Mathieu Perreault to an apparent arm injury after taking a vicious slash from Blackhawks winger Daniel Carcillo late in the second period.
Carcillo received a slashing minor, but the Jets didn't even get a power play, since Mark Scheifele was called for slashing.
“It was a vicious cross-check to an unsuspecting player,” said Jets head coach Paul Maurice, who said Perreault would be further evaluated on Saturday. “This was as big a character win as we've had since I've been here.”

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
Perreault's four-goal game was the first in Jets 2.0 history and just the third in franchise history, with Ilya Kovalchuk providing the last one as a member of the Atlanta Thrashers, on Nov. 11 of 2005 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Perreault opened the scoring at 7:24, then extended the lead four minutes later with a power-play goal that came on a quick wrister.
Perreault's third goal of the game required a lengthy look from the off-ice officials, who determined the Jets' versatile forward had indeed deflected home a point shot by Toby Enstrom at 15:23 of the second period.
Once the goal was finally announced during a stoppage in play, the ice was littered with hats as Perreault became just the second player in Jets 2.0 history to score three times in a game.
In case you've forgotten, Bryan Little, on Dec. 5 against the Colorado Avalanche, is the other.
But Perreault wasn't done there, jamming in a rebound after Michael Frolik was stopped on a breakaway at 16:32 of the second period.
Perreault nearly scored a fifth during the third period and the crowd showed their appreciation on several occasions.
“That was awesome. I got chills,” said Perreault. “I almost couldn't believe it.”
Watch the goals below..
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have acquired a fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft and forward John Mitchell from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Mathieu Perreault, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Mitchell will report to Hershey.
Mitchell, 27, collected 14 points (10 goals, 4 assists) and 48 penalty minutes in 61 games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL) last season.
Perreault recorded 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) in 39 games with Washington last season. The Drummondville, Quebec, native tallied 70 points (33 goals, 37 assists) in 159 career NHL games with the Capitals. Perreault was drafted by Washington in the sixth round (177th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed center Mathieu Perreault to a two-year extension, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.
Perreault, 24, set career highs in goals (16), assists (14), points (30), games played (64) and plus/minus (+9) in 2011-12. He finished first on Washington in shooting percentage (26.7%) and tied for fourth on the team with four game-winning goals. His 30 points ranked 10th on the team while he finished tied for fifth in goals and tied for fourth in plus/minus. Perreault tallied his first career NHL hat trick on Jan. 24 vs. Boston and made his NHL playoff debut against the Bruins, appearing in four postseason games with the Capitals in 2012
Gleason received five for charging, a ten and game misconduct.
Matt Hendricks or the Capitals was given two for roughing.
Of all five Southeast Division clubs, the Washington Capitals of 2010-11 will look the most like themselves from a year ago, having added only a spattering of depth to the lineup that captured the President’s Trophy last season. Alas, as the reigning division champ and still the clear-cut class of the division, if it ain’t broke, well, you know… But a first-round playoff exit thanks to Jaroslav Halak and the Montreal Canadiens left an awful taste in the mouths of Bruce Boudreau’s squad, meaning improvements are in order this year for sure. (Or else?)
