WINNIPEG, Mantioba — Former Sharks forward Devin Setoguchi is on a hot streak with the Winnipeg Jets, who host the Sharks on Sunday night.

Setoguchi has two goals and two assists in his last three games and nine points in 17 games in his first season with the Jets. Playing on a line with Evander Kane and Olli Jokinen, Setoguchi scored for the second straight game as the Jets beat Nashville 5-0 on Friday.

"We're just getting back to the little details of the game. For myself, it's playing well in my own end and getting pucks deep," Setoguchi said. "The guys I've been playing with obviously have been helping out with Olli and Kaner coming back."

The Jets would like Setoguchi, acquired from Minnesota in July, to become the offensive force he was early in his Sharks career.

Setoguchi had a career-high 31 goals and 65 points with San Jose in 2008-09, but hasn't come close to that since. He had 27 points in 48 games in his last season with the Wild, who actively shopped Setoguchi after a season in which it lost in the first round of the playoffs to eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago.

Setoguchi, who played his 400th career game Nov. 4 against Detroit, was asked how he has evolved since 2005, when he was a first round draft choice of the Sharks.

"I definitely think I've grown up a lot," Setoguchi said. "This is my seventh year, so it's been a long time. I'm a little bit more mature in the way I handle things and conduct myself away from the ice."

Sharks captain Joe Thornton, who spurred Setoguchi to his best season in the NHL five years ago, said his former linemate has always been a gifted scorer.

"When he first came in, we didn't know how he was going to be," Thornton said. "But he had such a great release. He's a right-hand shot, quick release and he skates so well. For me as a passer, quick feet, quick hands, it's a dream."
