Flight Training: Winnipeg Jets Prospect Report February 2013

Marianne Helm

It's been almost a year since Flight Training was grounded, but it soars back into the skies and updates how the prospects are doing in their various locales. We will also rank the top ten Jets prospects with each monthly installment, depending on their play.

Top Ten Prospects

1. Mark Scheifele - Barrie Colts (OHL) - 36GP - 30G - 34A - 64PTS - +22 - 17PIM

"What can you say about Schiefele? He was a man amongst boys!"That was the glowing review given by Barrie Colts Captain Ryan O`Connor after a recent game in which Schiefele scored 6 points. Scheifele has been dominant in Junior performances this year, but was unable to secure a spot with the big club in minimal time with the Jets this season. A playoff run, another offseason of bulking up and a full training camp should see Scheifele get the best chance possible to crack the Jets lineup in the 2013/2014 season. That means getting minutes on a top line, and seeing some special teams chances as well.

2. Jacob Trouba - Michigan Wolverines (NCAA) - 27GP - 8G - 12A - 20PTS - -8 - 70PIM

The hope around these parts is that Trouba is the defense partner of the future for Zach Bogosian here in Winnipeg. The season has not gone well for the Wolverines, but Trouba has been a bright spot, tied for second in team scoring as a freshman. He may be a year or two away from joining the Jets, but I feel he may be the most NHL ready of all the prospects.

3. Adam Lowry - Swift Current Broncos (WHL) - 60GP - 39G - 38A - 77PTS - +13 - 85PIM

Coming off a hand injury that threatened to derail his career, Lowry has been an offensive beast this season for Swift Current. He has size and uses it well, and the 6'5" winger should very well be in a pro uniform next year, or even later this year if the IceCaps somehow make the playoffs.

4. Edward Pasquale - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 36 GP - 14-19-2 - 2.63GAA - .912 SV%

The rock on The Rock, Pasquale has been one of the few bright spots in a disappointing season for St. John's. His numbers are down a bit this season, but as the offense has been largely absent for St. John's it has been the play of Pasquale that has kept them in many games this season.

5. Scott Kosmachuk - Guelph Storm (OHL) - 55GP - 29G - 24A - 53PTS - +3 - 93PIM

Kosmachuk leads the Storm in goals, and the 3rd round pick from 2012 has shown good value thus far. Offensive prowess and a good physical game could see him bumping Chris Thorburn out of the lineup next year.

6. Ivan Telegin - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 34GP - 3G - 7A - 10PTS - +1 - 8PIM

Stupidly fast player, he is exactly where he needs to be for his development right now, being in the AHL. Not lighting the lamp as much as he could be, but that seems to be the trend for the IceCaps this year.

7. Eric O`Dell - St. John's IceCaps (AHL) - 35GP - 13G - 11A - 24PTS - +7 - 20PIM

At age 22 it seems O`Dell is finally becomnig a decent player. He is having one of his best pro seasons, and is one of few IceCaps with more than 10 goals.

8. Ryan Olsen - Kelowna Rockets (WHL) - 58GP - 30G - 23A - 53PTS - +18 - 81PIM

Solid in both ends of the ice, Olsen has had a good year since switching from Saskatoon to Kelowna in the offseason.

9. Zach Yuen - Tri-City Americans (WHL)- 57GP - 5G - 26A - 31PTS - -3 - 44PIM

The +/- numbers this year are far below where they were last year, as Tri City is not nearly the team it used to be. Yuen is still a very sound defensive player, and his skating is in the Tobias Enstrom category of smooth and agile.

10. Jason Kasdorf - R.P.I. (NCAA) - 16GP - 10-2-2 - 1.52GAA - .942 SV%

After starting the season third on the RPI depth chart, the 6th round pick from 2011 has grabbed the starters role and not looked back, putting up very impressive numbers in his freshman year. The 6'4" Winnipegger has been the most impressive of the non-pro Jets goaltending prospects, and gives hope for life after Pavelec.
