While most Jets fans focus will be on the impending start of the NHL season, the Canadian junior leagues have all been going for at least a week now and some of the European leagues for about a month. In this prospects update we'll take a look at how the Jets prospects who are already playing have done from the beginning of the season up to now.
The plan is for this to be a weekly series that will provide an overview of prospect stats and play during that time.

The goaltender position can be a tricky one to predict. Patrick Roy and Ed Belfour were relative unknowns and entered the NHL with little to no fanfare. Both are now in the Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, Jimmy Waite and Justin Pogge entered the NHL with considerable hype after spectacular performances at the World Junior Hockey Championships. Both never found their stride and are only remembered for their junior success.
It is why I say this with some trepidation but I'm going out on a limb. Connor Hellebuyck is the goalie of the future for the Winnipeg Jets.
