According to the Oilers website, JF Jacques is getting better and will hit the ice someday. You’ll recall that Jacques waiting about half a year after his injury to have surgery (herniated disc) and is now recovering.
It’s been about 8 weeks since the surgery.
According to the report (on edmontonoilers.com) it is not known if he’ll get back in time for this season. Jacques’ skill set is a pretty nice comp for the guy MacT has been looking for much of this season.
