The Winnipeg Jets announced today they have activated forward Mark Letestu off injured reserve and assigned him to the Manitoba Moose on a conditioning assignment.

Letestu signed as a free agent with the Jets on July 2, 2019 after splitting the 2018-19 season between Columbus and their AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Monsters.

The Moose take on the Milwaukee Admirals on Friday, March 13. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT. The matchup will be broadcast on TSN 1290 and moosehockey.com/listenlive.
