Dustin Byfuglien met with Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Thursday before the defenseman's leave of absence continued into its second week.

"I'm not making any comments," Maurice said Friday. "He's got a life. I love the guy. I sat down and had a wonderful conversation with him yesterday, and it was great. That's it."

The 34-year-old was granted a personal leave of absence last Friday, the day the Jets opened training camp, and reportedly has been pondering his future in hockey.

Maurice was asked about pictures on social media of Byfuglien having dinner in Winnipeg on Thursday and comments from people in the photos who said they were told by the defenseman that he plans to return to the Jets.
