When the Winnipeg Jets made Nikolaj Ehlers their first pick in the 2014 entry draft, the organization believed they had an all-world talent that could become a break-out star in the NHL. The Dashing Dane showed quite a bit of offensive flair on Tuesday night, netting a hat-trick as the Jets cruised past the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 at the MTS Centre.

Well, the tables have apparently turned.
