Nikolaj Ehlers entered the league with a bang. He started off the season with eight points in his first ten games and was one of the favourites for the Calder after news of Connor McDavid being taken down with a shoulder injury.
Since then the Dashing Dane has slowed down, picking up only four points over the next sixteen games. Ehlers has since shifted down the depth chart to the the Jets makeshift third line with Alexander Burmistrov and Chris Thorburn.
Despite the recent set back, Nikolaj Ehlers is still having one heck of a 19-year-old rookie season and projects to be a special player.

This whole concept of "let's take a player who has no actual legit business being considered an NHL All-Star, and vote him into the NHL All-Star Game" is pretty much a yearly thing now right?
It is a sham! It is a mockery! It is proof that fans shouldn't have the right to vote and thus should be taken away now!
It also really isn't that big a deal is it? It is after all exhibition hockey and can we not all lighten up a bit?

The MTS Centre remains a house of horrors for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Winnipeg Jets couldn't be happier. A two goal performance from Drew Stafford led the way as the Jets soared past the Leafs 6-1, before a sold-out crowd on Portage and Donald. The Jets are 6-1 at home against Toronto since 2011.
