While training camp isn't as close as hockey fans would like, Winnipeg Jet fans should buckle up for an exciting training camp. There are many possible training camp battles that could ensue when fall rolls around, especially with the teams forwards. The teams top six is pretty set, but the bottom six is where things get interesting.

The Winnipeg Jets inked 2015 first round pick Jack Roslovic to a three year entry level contract on Monday. Roslovic played his past season for the Miami-Ohio Redhawks and with him signed to an entry level contract, his NCCA eligibility is gone and now it's up in the air where he suits up next fall. Roslovic has three possible places he could be assigned. He could be sent to the OHL and play for the London Knights, the team that holds his junior rights. He could be assigned to the Manitoba Moose to start his pro career in the AHL or he could even make the jump straight to the NHL and suit up for the Winnipeg Jets right out of the gate.
Which is likely the best fit for Roslovic and the most realistic assignment for him?
( Note: This is all pure speculation. We have to see the way Roslovic preforms at training camp, until then, this is all a guessing game, but why not talk about it? )
Lets examine all the possibilities.
