The Jets finished off their 2019 NHL Draft with three more picks after a bit of a break after their 51st pick in the second round. The Jets didn’t have a pick in the third round but had one in the fourth and two more in the fifth.
Kevin Cheveldayoff and the Jets continue the trend of picking European defensemen, this time going to a different Scandinavian country and a bit bigger as they selected 6’2″ right handed defenseman Simon Lundmark.
Last night the Winnipeg Jets drafted Finnish defenseman Ville Heinola with the 20th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. When Ville got up on stage, he got to make his way through the usual lineup of Jets management and ownership before getting to put on his new cap and jersey.
