Andrew Copp played in the top six for stretches this season. How did he perform? Andrew Copp is an interesting player in the sense that the organization seems to think more of him than his skill dictates because he was drafted and developed by the team. There is something odd about the fact that Copp is the epitome of a fourth line player and yet the Jets feel like he should be in the top six from time to time. Copp had 17 points, including nine goals, in 64 games this year. Copp has 31 points in 142 games spanning parts of three seasons as he played one game in the 2014-2015 season. This one game counts towards an accrued season, but he has not played in enough NHL games to be considered a restricted free agent, instead becoming a Group II free agent which basically means he has to sign with the Jets.

The playoffs began with six former Winnipeg Jets suiting up. Of those six former Jets, Montreal’s Al Montoya, Boston’s Drew Stafford, Chicago’s Johnny Oduya and Calgary’s Michael Frolik were eliminated in the first round and their seasons subsequently ended. The two former Jets that remain are New York’s Tanner Glass and Pittsburgh’s Ron Hainsey. Glass and Hainsey are not the most exhilarating duo to hit the ice surface this spring for the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, however, both players have their own unique journey of how they got there. Glass dressed in 78 games for the Jets in his one season spent in Winnipeg while Hainsey dressed in 103 games with the Jets and 243 games with the Atlanta Thrashers, giving him a total of 346 games in the Atlanta/Winnipeg organization. Tanner Glass While Glass’s time in Winnipeg was short lived, his legacy left an unexpectedly large impression

Season Review 2017: Shawn Matthias

Date: 2017-04-21

A veteran fourth liner on the third line led to some interesting results. Shawn Matthias may not be a high scoring forward, but he is a useful NHL player. The problem with Matthias is the Jets have a lot of bad players on NHL contracts and until they get rid of those players either via waivers or not signing them, it is hard to find room for a player like Matthias in a role that suits him well. In an ideal world, Matthias is on the fourth line and playing on the penalty kill. He is a short term injury solution to the top nine and he is a capable of driving possession and out-skilling other fourth liners. But the Jets do not have a team in an ideal world. Instead, they have a team where Matthias is played on the third line and Chris Thorburn on the fourth line. In the near future, as early as next
