Day 30 – Winnipeg Jets
The Jets were a little handcuffed after being acquired from the former Atlanta Thrashers ownership group. But now, the dust has settled and they have an entire season under their belt the new management have had time to evaluate their roster, and the farm players. With the likes of Mark Scheifele, Carl Klingberg, Ivan Telegin, and Patrice Cormier in the fold they should like what they have. With young and rising stars already on the big club such as Zach Bogosian and Evander Kane the future holds promise for the Jets even after the honeymoon phase has passed. Winnipeg brings a wealth of blue-collar players to the table in their prospects, but has few players with the ability to step up and take over a game.
D - Jacob Trouba (USA) USNTDP Under-18
6’3” 196 lbs, 18 years
Most see Trouba as a defensive defenseman, but there’s more to his game that that one aspect. He’s physical, a good skater, has a good point shot and can jump up into the play and stickhandle; he just needs to add more consistency to that part of the game. He’s always competing and with the higher the competition level the higher you’ll see him raise his game. There’s a nastiness and competitiveness to his game that makes you think of Chris Pronger.
Projection: Two-way defenceman
Potential Upside: 45 points (Chris Pronger)
RW - Scott Kosmarchuk (CAN) Guelph Storm
6’1” 185 lbs, 18 years
He’s a little inconsistent; he’ll either wow you or leave you scratching your head depending on the night you saw him play. He is a product of the ultra competitive Toronto Marlboros minor system and has good skill and speed to his game, which should help him out at the next level. He’s always found a way to compete and be effective at every level of the game he’s played, and it should be no different in the NHL. He even managed to drop the gloves a few times this past season when needed and be the guy his team rallied behind.
Potential: Checking forward
Projected Upside: 35 points (Shawn Matthias)
