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.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but the Winnipeg Jets had two selections in the first round this year. While we were still high in euphoria with the addition of Kyle Connor, the Jets took another player that we had ranked earlier than when the Jets took him.
While we didn't have Jack Roslovic as the best player available, he was pretty darn close. At 27th the Jets selected our 21st favourite player.
Let's take a quick look at the numbers for the other top four scorer in the USHL in this year's draft.
