Nik Ehlers is ready to play pro hockey in 2015.

The Winnipeg Jets prospect told Sportinformation that the Swiss A league would be his preferred landing place if he doesn't make the Jets this season.

Ehlers, the 9th overall pick of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, will be given every chance to make the Jets this season. He shredded the QMJHL last year, putting up over 100 points in just 51 games, and is unable to play for the Moose due to the NHL-CHL transfer agreement.

It is amazing how quickly opinions can change on a prospect. Just last summer, many fans were excited for the Winnipeg Jets addition of Brenden Kichton.

The right-handed shot defender offensive defender was drafted by the Jets in 2013 as a 20-year-old and re-draft entry after the New York Islanders failed to sign Kicthon to an entry level contract. Kichton went on to dominating the AHL, scoring most assists by a rookie and earning All-Rookie Team and All-Star Team nods.
