If you're Mark Scheifele, and you're playing in the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, and you score a hat-trick, people are going to cheer, and cheer loudly! Scheifele is certainly making a case to be added to the Under 23 squad for the World Cup in September! Andrew Copp scored his second goal of the week, JC Lipon had his first NHL point as an assist on Copp's goal, and Josh Morrissey had just under 16 minutes of ice time in a great debut. After less than 24 hours, let's see how they perform tonight, as the Winnipeg Jets in the last back to back of the season, and take on the Edmonton Oilers in Hometown Hockey.
Here's the coach after last night's game...
