Brendan Lemieux may soon be the Jets player all other teams hate to play against. A player in the "fan favourite" mould that works his tail off, scores goals, and punches a few faces. He is happy to defend his teammates (and win) and burn you the next shift with his powerful shot.
Lemieux is now 20 years old and eligible for the AHL if he does not make the Jets. Look for him to push very hard to make the big club in training camp! Check out Brendan's highlights from the past year after the jump.

We're nearing the end of our projections for the draft's second round, and today we have an intriguing prospect in Dillon Dubé. Dubé is a gritty, albeit undersized player that can play all three forward positions. He has flashes of skill but is likely to make himself known through his tenacity and work ethic.
Dubé emerged as one of the Kelowna Rockets' strongest players this year while they dealt with various injuries. He was a point per game player while being on the younger end of 2016 draft elgibles - projection models with smile upon him.

On February 25th 2016, the Winnipeg Jets 2.0 traded the only captain they have ever known. The Jets traded Andrew Ladd, Jay Harrison and Matt Fraser to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Marko Dano, a first round draft pick in 2016 and a conditional 2018 draft pick. The deal did not catch fans by surprise, seeing as the Jets and Ladd were at a stalemate for quite some time with contract negotiations and it didn't make sense for the Jets to retain Ladd for another six+ years.
Now with Ladd's season over with the Blackhawks, we can fully digest and break down the deal that sent the captain packing.
Who won this deal?

Coming in at the 33rd spot on the Nation Network's list is self proclaimed power forward Taylor Raddysh. Raddysh's size and scoring give him the look of a surefire first rounder yet his rankings tend to fall anywhere from the end of the first round to well into the second.
After the jump we take a look at where Raddysh ranks among this years draft eligible's and why his numbers may be a little inflated.
