- Associated Press - Sunday, October 23, 2011

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA (AP) - The Winnipeg Jets are sending Mark Scheifele back to juniors.

The Jets assigned the 18-year-old Scheifele, the No. 7 pick in this year's draft, to the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League on Sunday. The center played in seven games with Winnipeg this season.

Scheifele scored his first NHL goal on Wednesday at Toronto, but played just over seven minutes in the Jets' 5-3 win over Carolina on Saturday.

Scheifele led OHL rookies last season with 53 assists. He also had 22 goals in 66 games.
