Players to Watch
Nic Petan and Nikolaj Ehlers look to be deployed in an offensive roll again tonight. Both kids have shown off some of the flashy skills that got them drafted throughout this preseason, but time is winding down. There are only three preseason games remaining and the Winnipeg Jets will be whittling down their roster to get a look at the final version. These two kids need to continue to show strong if they want to stick and they may be competing with each other. Every shift and every shot may factor into the final decision. Who gets a look in the regular season, who doesn't. Watch and find out.
