With the 9th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft the Winnipeg Jets have selected Nikolaj Ehlers

With the 9th overall pick of the 2014 NHL Draft the Winnipeg Jets select Nikolaj Ehlers. Ehlers spent the 2013-14 playing for Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL and did had himself a banner year. To put it bluntly, Ehlers flipping dominated. He scored 49 goals for his Moosheads.

Ehlers is the fourth 1st round selection since the Winnipeg Jets were relocated out of Atlanta. He joins Josh Morrissey, Jacob Trouba and Mark Scheifele. Ehlers is a veratile player who adds a ton of speed to the to the system at Winnipeg Jets system and I am happy happy happy dancing.

Scouting report:

LW Nikolaj Ehlers (Halifax, QMJHL) - Ehlers came from almost nowhere; from a solid player in the Swiss junior leagues to absolutely tearing apart the QMJHL. Ehlers has speed to burn and he uses that to his full advantage. He combines that with a quick, hard shot off the rush and nice vision to make him a threat every time he goes up the ice. Even once established in the offensive zone, Ehlers uses his skills very well  He finds soft areas and is creative in the offensive zone. That's not to say Ehlers is bad defensively as he uses his speed and smarts pretty well in the defensive zone. His really slight build does leads to struggles in the corners and in front of the net. but his frame will allow him to add muscle. His elusiveness also allows him to avoid physical play effectively. He has top end potential.
