Flight Training: Winnipeg Jets Prospect Report - February 2012

Hey all! It's been awhile since we have done a prospects update here at Arctic Ice Hockey, so here is an updated look at how the Winnipeg Jets farm and junior players have fared over the past few months.

We will also rank the top ten Jets prospects with each monthly installment, depending on their play.

So now, without further adieu, here is our February edition of Flight Training.

Top Ten Prospects

1. Mark Scheifele - Barrie Colts (OHL) - 15GP - 5G - 5A - 10PTS - 4PIM - +2

Winnipeg's top prospect has slowed down in scoring since returning from the World Junior Championships, yet the Colts have been getting their scoring elsewhere, going 6-3-1 in their past ten. At any rate, Scheifele is still on pace to best his career totals in points and Barrie looks poised to make a strong push towards the playoffs.

2. Carl Klingberg - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 10GP - 2G - 3A - 5PTS - 0PIM - +5

Carl Klingberg's goal scoring has taken a hit in 2012 as the large Swedish forward has only registered two goals since the clock turned midnight on Saturday, December 31, 2011. Klingberg has spent most of the season refining his offensive talents in St. John's and despite his drop-off in scoring, he ranks among the team leaders in goals (13 - 3rd).

3. Paul Postma - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 10GP - 4G - 3A - 7PTS - 4PIM - +4

Postma is fresh off his selection as an AHL Eastern All-Star and has picked up in the points department, scoring seven times in the past ten games. If Winnipeg becomes active sellers at the trade deadline, look for Postma to get into the Jets permanent line-up.

4. Patrice Cormier - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 8GP - 0G - 4A - 4PTS - 11PIM - -2

Cormier has proven a capable fill-in as a bottom six forward for the Jets, bouncing from St. John's to Winnipeg over the past month as an injury call-up. While his stat line isn't as gaudy as his teammates, he brings grit along with defensive-minded game to a team lacking in these fields.

5. Spencer Machacek - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 10GP - 3G - 7A - 10PTS - 27PIM - +3

Machacek's offensive explosion was enough for the Jets to re-call him last week. Winnpeg has struggled with forwards being injured and rewarded Machacek for leading St. John's in scoring. He has made small statistical improvements each year he has played in the AHL, but it is still unclear where he fits into Winnipeg's long term plans.

6. Eddie Pasquale - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 5GP - 5W - 0L - 1.19GAA - SV% 0.95 - 2SO

The rookie goaltender was recently voted as AHL Player of the Week after posting two shutouts in his past five starts. The tandem of Pasquale and David Aebischer have proven a reliable duo for the IceCaps and with Chris Mason soon to turn 36 years old, the franchise could be looking at Pasquale to become their back-up netminder in the next few years.

7. Zach Redmond - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 10GP - 1G - 4A - 5PTS - 6PIM - +1

Redmond - like Postma - represented the IceCaps at this years AHL All-Star Game. Redmond has quietly had a very good campaign in St. John's on a blue line that features plenty of depth.

8. Ivan Telegin - Barrie Colts (OHL) - 5GP - 2G - 3A - 5PTS - 2PIM - +4

Telegin missed most of the month of January recovering from a wrist injury he suffered at the World Junior Championships in which Russia lost the gold medal to Sweden. Since returning to Barrie in late January, Telegin has been a point per-game player for Dale Hawerchuk's team.

9. Arturs Kulda - St. Johns IceCaps (AHL) - 10GP - 1G - 2A - 3PTS - 7PIM - -3

Arturs Kulda has demostrated a calm demeanor patrolling the blue line in St. John's so far this year. He should eclipse last year's total in points and is currently third to Brett Festerling and Zach Redmond in plus/minus (+8).

10. Austen Brassard - Belleville Bulls (OHL) - 10GP - 5G - 3A - 10PTS - 2PIM - -1

After being selected in the 5th round of last year's NHL Entry Draft, it's safe to say that expectations were low for Austen Brassard's development. The Belleville Bulls forward ranks second on his team in points as they fight to secure a position in the OHL playoffs. While his journey to the NHL is far from being assured, his near point per-game production is a step in the right direction.
