The Winnipeg Jets have done it again.
With the 198th overall pick of the draft, the Jets have signed another undervalued player who could end up a home run in the late rounds.
The Jets take Sami Niku in the 7th round, a bit of a faller with some high-end talent.

The Jets continue two trends with one pick. With their sixth pick at 168, the Jets get their fourth USHL player of the draft, and also continue their recent trend of selecting re-entry prospects who are looking to go to the NCAA.
Mason Appleton joins Andrew Copp, Tucker Poolman, Matt Ustaski, and C.J. Franklin as players passed in their first (and for some, second) draft eligible season and plan to develop in the NCAA.

Getting the Nation Network's seventh ranked Kyle Connor at seventeen was a pretty big deal. Getting the twenty-first ranked Jack Roslovic at twenty-five was pretty great. Then adding our twenty-second ranked player with Jansen Harkins at forty-seven seemed like it would be icing on the cake.
And then Kevin Cheveldayoff broke the Nation Network. At one-hundred-and-eighth overall, the Winnipeg Jets selected Michael Spacek, the Nation Network's 25th ranked prospect.

With their 4th selection of the draft, the Jets take a player ranked quite high by third-party scouting organizations but doesn't have an extremely high PCS.
Erik Foley was one point under a point per game while playing for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders of the USHL. He lead his team in scoring although not in points per game.

With their 3rd selection of the NHL entry draft, the Jets had another gift fall in to their laps as two-way Prince George Cougars centre Jansen Harkins was around for their second round pick.
Harkins was a very good player on a poor Cougars team this past season, and represents some excellent value for the Jets in round 2. Let's have a look after the jump.
