Jets Nation Podcast: Draft Preview 2018

It’s the most exciting time in a young hockey player’s life. The course of their future will be guided by the selections made this weekend at the NHL entry draft in Dallas. With the main philosophy of the Winnipeg Jets being “draft and develop”, this is a key weekend for the organization. Who will they pick? Should they trade up to select in the first round? There are some big name players that will get shopped around at the draft and I’m sure the Jets will be receiving some offers. A lot will be decided in the next 72 hours and the guys break it all down on this week’s show.
