After an embarrassing 5-2 loss Monday to the San Jose Sharks, the Winnipeg Jets are looking to turn their luck around by calling up Ondrej Pavelec.

The 29-year-old returns from the Manitoba Moose, where he has played 18 games this season for the AHL affiliate.

Pavelec has registered an 8-7-2 record with a 2.78 goals against average and .917 save percentage.

Pavelec was originally sent down to the Moose in October of last year, pending waivers.
