Jets Nation Air Mail: 1990, Trains, and Asset Management

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so in that vein we’d like to borrow a page from the playbook of other Nation Network sites and introduce our very own weekly mailbag feature which we have craftily re-named Jets Nation Air Mail because nothing says “we write about a team named after aviation equipment” like…

The 6’1 goaltender Eric Comrie was drafted late in the second round by the Winnipeg Jets in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Jets Nation Prospect Profile 2015: #10 Andrew Copp

The Winnipeg Jets wished the 6’2 centre from Ann Arbor to start his pro-career sufficiently enough to burn a year of Andrew Copp’s entry level contract last year.
