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.

The Winnipeg Jets have signed both Joel Armia and Adam Lowry to two-year deals. Joel Armia is a one-way contract with an average salary of $925,000. Adam Lowry's is a one-way contract with an average salary of $1.125 million.
Both players turned into waiver eligible players this season, so it is not surprising to see the one-way contracts.

Yes, the Winnipeg Jets' 18th overall selection in the 2016 NHL Entry draft is a low scorer. Yes, low-scorers tend to succeed less often than high-scorers selected in the same range.
However, not all have failed and probability is not destiny. There could be more to Stanley which could make him a success.
