Overview:

The last year for Roslovic has to be a blur. Roslovic was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in June of 2015, and then went to Miami University of Ohio where he lit the lamp 10 times in 36 games and assisted 26 times more. Then, after a strong showing at the 2016 Winnipeg Jets Development Camp during the first week of July, Roslovic was signed to his entry level contract during July's third week, and can play with either the Winnipeg Jets, the Manitoba Moose, or the London Knights, as his junior rights were recently traded there. Whew! My guess is that Roslovic finds himself in the middle with the Manitoba Moose, which would be a good thing, as he has found a certain chemistry with fellow '15 round draft picks in Kyle Connor and Jansen Harkins.

AIH Authors' Thoughts:

Truck:

Jack Roslovic turned a lot of heads during this summer's prospect camp. He showcased speed and skill that were a step above the rest. That said, he's largely unproven. This will be a big year in determining upside and he may shoot up of down the rankings depending on his play. Is he a future scorer? Is there top 6 upside? We'll see!

Andy:

Roslovic is a dark horse, and coming off a great collegiate season, Roslovic skated very well against his contemporaries at the Jets prospect camp this past July. In all, this accumulated into a entry level contract.  The Connor/ Roslovic dynamic duo could be playing for the Moose this coming year.  Roslovic's playing rights have been traded to the London Knights, so no matter where he winds up this season, he will benefit immensely.

arby:

I'm not as high on Roslovic as many, as I don't put any stock in the development camp he had against that blue-line. He's a nice prospect to be sure, but until I see him play against some actual pro competition I'll temper my expectations. I'd be much more interested in him going to London to crush the OHL before moving up to the pros.

Ian:

Roslovic will either see himself playing for the London Knights or Moose this year. He would have to absolutely blow everyone away to make the Jets. I think playing in college is going to push him towards the AHL instead of the OHL. He knows what it's like to play against men. One issue may be conditioning due to how short the NCAA season is compared to pro or even Major Junior.

Summary:

The sky is the limit! Roslovic may find himself topping out with the London Knights in the OHL, so he'll likely be with the Moose this coming season. From what we've recently seen, there is a certain leadership quality, chemistry with fellow teammates, and strong work ethic in Roslovic's game.
