Jets and Byfuglien could be headed to arbitration of his ankle injury

Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on the Dustin Byfuglien – Winnipeg Jets situation

 “Here’s what I believe the NHL/Jets side is in all of this — first of all, the Jets have been told they can’t say anything, which is why Kevin Cheveldayoff has been so guarded in his comments. But, from what I understand, they feel in the exit physical at the end of last year, Dustin Byfuglien was deemed fit to play. He didn’t let anyone know that he had injuries with his ankle all summer, and made it clear at the beginning of the year he was ready to retire.

“However, Byfuglien — his representatives at Octagon and I assume the Players’ Association too — their position is Byfuglien was hurt going into the playoffs, everybody knew that, he was playing injured, he took all summer off to heal, he went to Winnipeg because he planned to play, his ankle acted up again when he started skating, and they feel it’s a legitimate hockey injury.”

Friedman adds that during the surgery the doctors discovered a broken bone in his foot. Question is, when did the break occur?
