Buffalo, NY (Sports Network) - Winnipeg Jets center Olli Jokinen will be sidelined for the team's remaining three regular-season games after sustaining a high ankle sprain during Saturday's matchup against the New York Islanders.

Jokinen, who has totaled seven goals and 14 points along with a team-worst minus-19 rating over 45 games during a disappointing first season with the Jets, is expected to out between 6-to-8 weeks with the injury.

Winnipeg enters Monday's clash at Buffalo three points behind Washington for first place in the Southeast Division and trails the New York Rangers by the same margin for the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Jets will be without defenseman Zach Bogosian for the rest of the regular season as well after he suffered a reported concussion in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Islanders. The former No. 3 overall pick had tallied five goals and 14 points over 33 outings this year and was on a season-high four- game point streak.

On a positive note, Winnipeg recalled defenseman Zach Redmond from a conditioning assignment with AHL St. John's on Monday. The rookie has not played in the NHL since incurring a life-threatening cut to his right thigh from a teammate's skate during a practice back in February.
