The Winnipeg Jets thanked their lucky stars when they got the #2 spot in the 2016 Draft Lottery, and already knew they would be the ones to grab Patrik Laine.
The Finnish winger has been compared to the likes of Alex Ovechkin, thanks to his huge side, excellent shot and overall scoring ability. However, there's more to him than his heritage and likeness. Here are five things you may already know, but should know about Patrik Laine.

While it has been a whirlwind of a season for the Winnipeg Jets, no one has experienced more ups and downs than Mathieu Perreault.
The 29-year-old centre, who has been playing on the second-line LW of late, is not experiencing the consistency he has over the years. In his last three season, he's scored at least 40 points, serving as an important asset and core member of the Jets' scoring lines.
However, he has struggled greatly this season and has just four goals and 13 points through 33 games. Not only that, he is a minus-14 and is not playing the quality of hockey he usually boasts. He did have an undisclosed injury that held him out of the lineup for some time, and it's clear that he is still shaking off some rust.
But then again, he has appeared to pick things up of late. He recorded two power-play helpers in Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings, marking his first multi-point game of the 2016-17 season. He has three goals and 10 points in his last 16 games and may be on the verge to finding his scoring touch again.

The Jacob Trouba-Winnipeg Jets saga could very well be novelized. But considering his past, present and future situation with the team, there are still a lot of pages left unturned.

In 35 games this season, the 32-year-old blueliner has scored just one goal and nine points. He is a plus-2 and has 26 PIM so far this season, but one problem surrounds around his numerous giveaways and lack of physicality on the blueline.
Despite an overall drop in his offensive and defensive game, Enstrom still factors into the top four. However, there are many options when it comes to trading away Enstrom, and likely many teams who would pay for a top-four blueliner of his calibre.
