Winnipeg Jets defenseman Brenden Dillon will miss Sunday’s Game 4 of the Western Conference first-round series against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver. This absence is due to a hand injury sustained during a post-game altercation following Winnipeg’s 6-2 loss in Game 3 on Friday. Dillon suffered a laceration on his left hand during a scuffle involving Avalanche forward Brandon Duhaime, which led to blood dripping from the back of his hand as he left the ice.
