Winnipeg Jets Top 25 Under 25: Haiku Edition, Part 2

The epic conclusion of our two-part haiku series.

Inspired by our resident poet IanDmytriw and subsequent responses, here is a haiku for each and every player profiled in this year's Top 25 Under 25 series. At the very least, think of them as (hopefully) succinct summaries.

I make no promises as to quality or strict haiku ruleset adherence, and would like to apologize in advance.

#14: Andrew Copp, C

Well-rounded leader
Put on the fourth line fast track
Is it his ceiling?

#13: Jansen Harkins, C

Two-way wunderkind
He's complete but not elite
Sneaky good offence

#12: Jack Roslovic, RW/C

Compliments skill well
An offensive dynamo
Arby was not pleased

#11: Ben Chiarot, D

Looked good beside great
Solid, stable, ho hum depth
Anyone but Stu

#10: Joel Armia, RW

He should dominate
As a big mobile sniper
Ready for prime time?

#9: Kyle Connor, LW/C

Absolute speedster
And top offensive talent
Paging Matt Duchene?

#8: Nicolas Petan, C/LW

Pierre McG said
Best NHL hockey sense
Small but exciting

#7: Josh Morrissey, D

Bright spot in system
Fast, skilled offensive d-man
Top-two or top-four?

#6: Connor Hellebuyck, G

Otherwise known as the progenitor of this poetic exercise.

#5: Alexander Burmistrov, F

Fancystats darling
Missed the Manitoba warmth
Might play every role

#4: Adam Lowry, C/LW

Secure on third line
Smart and stout two-way player
Rock for years to come

#3: Nik Ehlers, RW/LW

The awaited one
Expectations of stardom
His time might be now

#2: Mark Scheifele, C

Top-six role entrenched
Can he score more than Little?
Straight outta balance

#1: Jacob Trouba, D

Strong two-way d-man
Excels despite Mark Stuart
The sky's the limit
