We will take a look at how our potential future Winnipeg Jets have performed in the NCAA.

Tanner Lane has slowed down in both shots and points per game since we last checked. The 6'3 forward has one more season of NCAA eligibility, but he'll need to double his output once again if he is to become a relevant prospect.

Colorado College is a terrible team this year. They produce the NCHC's lowest number of shots and allow the third most. The biggest difference though is in goaltending. The highest to second lowest NCHC teams in save percentage is a spread of 0.015; the spread between the second lowest NCHC team in save percentage and Colorado College is 0.039.

CC's captain Stoykewych has improved this season thus far, but it will unlikely be enough for him to get noticed in his final year of NCAA eligibility.

Brennen Serville posted three assists in a single game against Ohio State. To put that in perspective, Serville has only totalled three points in both his previous seasons. Serville will be graduating from the NCAA this season, but is unlikely to gain much attention from Jets management unless he improves in many areas.

Month GP SA SV%
November 6 145 0.931

Kasdorf has returned to form after sustaining a season ending injury last season. The young net minder went 4-2-0 over November due to his strong play in allowing only one goal against in each win, while allowing two and four goals in the two losses. Kasdorf's injury shortened season gave him red-shirt status, meaning Kasdorf has an extra year of NCAA eligibility for development available to him.

Harstad has scored three goals on the power play, giving him a highly unsustainable save percentage of 19 percent! The one year younger teammate of Stoykewych will also be graduating this year and also has yet to produce numbers that make him look worthy of an entry level contract.

Phillips has slowed down, but not by much. He's managed to keep himself above 0.930 for the second consecutive month and pulled up his NCAA career save percentage to 0.919. A strong season could cause either Kasdorf or Phillips to go pro next season, but it is more likely they stay in the NCAA for an additional season (or two for Kasdorf).

Last month we mentioned that Copp's point scoring would likely bounce up as his shooting percentage normalized... well, it happened. Copp's shooting percentage has returned, his goal scoring has returned, and he is still pacing near three shots a game.

Poolman played the Dustin Byfuglien role for North Dakota, playing a few games as a winger instead of defense due to team injuries. The freshman is an intriguing case of player development as he is the same age as Aaron Harstad, but still has three seasons of NCAA remaining after this year.

Glover has had a slow start but from all accounts has played well. Despite these offensive struggles, the young defender has still out-paced any of Harstad, Stoykewych, or Serville in their freshman seasons. It will be important to see if his numbers develop better than those three, despite Glover being known more for his defensive game.

In October Franklin put up one goal and four assists in seven games. We see that Franklin has once again repeated his success from the previous month in identical fashion. While older, Franklin's production is promising for a fifth round draft pick.

Ustaski put up some points this month, putting him at seventh for team scoring. He has some promise with his 6'6 size and soft hands, but will need to see some progression given his age.
