With the 43rd overall selection in the 2017 NHL Draft, the Jets select Defenseman Dylan Samberg from Hermantown High School in Minnesota.
Samberg, 18, is a native of Saginaw, Minnesota, and is a left shot defenseman. The 6’3″, 190lb defenseman put up 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) for Hermantown High School in Minnesota. He was ranked 67th among North American skaters by Central Scouting.
“Samberg is one of the rawest players in the Draft and will definitely be a project, despite being a relatively high pick. He was originally scheduled to play a year in the USHL before college, but after Minnesota Duluth lost defenseman Neal Pionk to the NHL, Samberg will head straight to college hockey. It may take Samberg a few years in Duluth to adjust and develop, but if he continues on his upward trajectory, he has potential as a first or second pairing defenseman at the NHL level.” – Chris Dilks, SBN College Hockey
