Well, the lockout is upon us and the NHL has officially began cancelling games, which will leave a major void for Winnipeg Jets fans. Many will turn their attention to the Jets' AHL affiliate in St. John's but, there are other teams worth keeping an eye on.

For example, the CHL houses a good chunk of the Jets prospect pool. Mark Scheifele, Lukas Sutter, Scott Kosmachuk, Adam Lowry, Austen Brassard, Ryan Olsen and Zach Yuen will all be spending the year in the CHL.

Lets take a look at when the Jets youngsters will be hitting the ice this month:

The CHL season opened yesterday and Scheifele was the only Jets prospect to hit the ice. He had a fantastic game offensively, netting 3 assists and an empty net goal to seal the the game.

Most CHL teams open their regualr season schedule tonight, meaning most Jets' prospects -- save Zach Yuen -- will get rolling today.

It will be interesting to see what these youngsters can do. Here are a few tanltalizing storylines for fans to follow:

  • Can Lowry stay healthy and continue his point a game pace form last year?
  • Will Yuen's offensive game continue to develop?
  • Will Sutter stay out of the penalty box and boost his offensive contributions?
  • Will Olsen blossom into his newfound role?
  • Will Kosmachuk be able to produce another 30 goal season? Could he score 40 and become one of the league leaders?
