Winnipeg Jets forward Olli Jokinen is out 6-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain after colliding with New York Islanders defenceman Thomas Hickey early in Saturday's game.

According to Gary Lawless of TSN Radio 1290, defenceman Zach Bogosian is also out at least a week with a concussion. The blueliner appeared to be injured after taking a hit to the head from Islanders forward Kyle Okposo.

Bogosian, who has five goals and nine assists for 14 points in 33 games this season, did not accompany the team on the current road trip.

Jokinen has seven goals and seven assists for 14 points in 44 games this season with a -18 rating.

Defencemen Zach Redmond could be an option to play Monday against the Sabres while forwards Jim Slater, Nik Antropov and Anthony Peluso are on the trip as well.
