With their second pick in the 2014 NHL draft the Winnipeg Jets have selected Jack Glover

After a long wait, thanks to last year's trade for Devin Setoguchi, the Winnipeg Jets were able to dive back into the National Hockey League's prospect pool. With their selection the Winnipeg Jets drafted USNDP product Jack Glover.

Our own prospect expert had Glover ranked as a first round talent, 27th overall. He is a big, smooth skating defender who may need a few years to round out his game, but his upside is definitely high. Glover is committed to play for the University of Minnesota next season.

The Numbers:

Terrel's Scouting Report:

Birthdate: May 17, 1996.  Height: 6'3''.  Weight: 192lbs.

D Jack Glover (US National Development Program, USHL) - Glover is an interesting player as he is, in my opinion, both a really polished player and a bit of a project. Glover is a product of the UDNDTP which has produced top picks like Jack Johnson and Erik Johnson, but he is by no means as physically gifted as those players. Glover played at just 172lbs in USHL in 2012-13 despite being almost 6'3'. Glover does play a very polished, consistent game in both ends of the rink. He is a solid skater and makes good, solid decisions with the puck. He has shown the ability to create offense as well with a good shot and smart decisions. Glover is heading to University of Minnesota next year where the key for him is to get bigger and stronger while continuing to refine his game.

NHL Projection: Consistant, two-way, 2nd pairing defenseman
