In what was a bit of a shocking move, the Winnipeg Jets have decided to assign Adam Lowry to the Manitoba Moose as reported by the Jets' website.
This has come as a surprise to many, although we have previously noted that Lowry had been struggling relative to last year more than any other Jet.

Kyle Connor showed the Team USA brass what they missed out on this weekend, scoring 5 goals and 1 assist over two games against the University of Minnesota. Connor netted a hat trick and added an assist on Friday night, and followed that up with a 2-goal performance on Saturday.
Connor has now totalled 22 points (11 goals, 11 assists) in 15 games in his first NCAA season.
See highlights of the weekend after the jump!

The Winnipeg Jets scored three even-strength goals while out-shooting the St. Louis Blues 36-26, got production from their bottom-six, and only trailed on the scoreboard for a total of 3:44 in the entire game.
Yet, they still found a way to lose.

Not long ago we discussed Team USA not taking their best players while looking at NHLEs. The NHLEs allowed us to compare the invited and non-invited players across the multiple different leagues, like the CHL and NCAA.
It should be noted that since that article went out, Jets' prospect Kyle Connor went hot and scored 6 points in 2 games, which would have given him the third highest NHLE on the team if he had been invited. So Kyle Connor is one of the 3 highest scoring eligible Americans.
Looking at the numbers though, there is another piece of evidence that suggests passing on Jets' prospect Jack Roslovic was an error as well.
