Winnipeg added another body this morning, claiming 23-year old Brett MacLean off of waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes.

A former second round pick in 2007, MacLean was a two-time 100+ point getter in the OHL has been the top scorer for the San Antonio Rampage in the AHL over the last two years. The left/right winger was considered one of the Coyotes best prospects so this is definitely a no-risk, high-reward type of acquisition for the club. 

MacLean only has 13 games of NHL experience, so he remains a bit of an unknown commodity. That said, a lot of arrows are pointing in the right direction and it won't cost the Jets anything to give him a spin in the line-up to see if he sticks. Especially with Eric Fehr starting the year in the infirmary.

A savvy pick-up by Chevaldayoff just one day into the season.

Trash it!

Nice job Jets! Low risk and even on a 2-way but then again you can lose him on waivers too! Could be the pickup of the year...hard to say yet!!!
