Top 25 Under 25: Number 10 Nicolas Petan

Will the young forward be put in a spot where he can succeed? Nicolas Petan is ranked tenth overall in Arctic Ice Hockey’s Top 25 Under 25 because of potential and potential only. The Winnipeg Jets forward has struggled to score at the NHL level, but he has also been saddled with Chris Thoburn so do not judge him too harshly. Petan still has the talent to be a skilled NHLer and had his moments last season. He now needs to make those moments more consistent and be able to show that he is capable of scoring in the NHL. Petan has the potential to play on a second or third line in the NHL and put up points, but that is only if he is put in a position to succeed by the coaching staff. Tim: It seems like a good chunk of Winnipeg Jets n

No, the Winnipeg Jets are not This Year’s Avalanche

Hockey is perhaps more unpredictable than any other sport ahead of the season, but there’s one thing I’m prepared to bet on in 2017-18: the Winnipeg Jets won’t be this year’s Colorado Avalanche. For those wondering why the comparison exists at all, a recent Sportsnet article by Sean McIndoe, of Down Goes Brown Twitter fame...

NHL Rumours: Pastrnak waiting on Oilers’ Draisaitl contract?

Date: 2017-08-14

It’s a gorgeous mid-August day. The only ice of importance should be in your lemonade. So, naturally, your mind is on hockey rumours. Here’s the latest buzz being generated on the unsigned (Leon Draisaitl, David Pastrnak, Jarome Iginla), the unextended (Paul Maurice), the untraded (Matt Duchene), and the unimpressed (Evgeny Kuznetsov). Pastrnak waiting for Draisaitl to make him richer? All due respect to your Connor Brown paranoia, but of the 19 restricted free agents who remain jobless in mid-August, the most important contract negotiations are those involving Edmonton’s

Top 25 Under 25: Number 11 Adam Lowry

Is this what the Jets can expect from their rightful fourth line centre from now on? Adam Lowry is what he is meant to be for the Winnipeg Jets. He is a fine depth centre for the Jets and does well when he is on the fourth line. He can screen the goalie on the power play and sometimes fill in higher in the lineup. What Lowry is not is a scoring player or really a player with much scoring potential. He is a legit NHL player and has shown himself well on the fourth line. He is on the precipice of being in the top 10 because he is a legit NHLer, which is hard to achieve, but he is not one of the Jets with the highest potential. Tim: Adam Lowry has developed well as a

Top 25 Under 25: Number 12 Joel Armia

Can the Finnish forward reach more than flashes of his potential? Joel Armia was one of the key pieces in the trade that had the Winnipeg Jets sending Evander Kane to the Buffalo Sabres. While Armia has turned into a serviceable NHLer in that time, he seems to be falling on the lower end of his potential. This is why Armia is just outside of the top-10 as ranked by the writers at Arctic Ice Hockey: Armia is a useful player, but he has the potential to be so much more than he is. That potential shows itself at odd times and does help the Jets

It’s not October yet (seriously, stop asking) but it is “ticket draft” season. Since the Jets return, groups of people have gone in together to afford a pair (or more) of season tickets and once again it’s the time of year where people who are in a group-buy for Jets season tickets start planning and...

Top 25 Under 25: Number 13 Kristian Vesalainen

Will the Jets most recent first rounder live up to his potential? When the Winnipeg Jets selected Kristian Vesalainen with the 24th overall pick, it was lauded as a smart pick. Now that the dust has settled, it is still a smart pick. Vesalainen has left the Swedish Elite League to go back to the Finnish Liiga. This is a decision based on the fact he wants to play for the first team and not in the junior league this season. As a player Vesalainen is skilled and has the capabilities to be a scorer. He has been playing against men for a couple years now while still playing in the Swedish junior league on and off. He also played for the Finnish junior team and is a solid bet at making this years World Under-20 roster again. He will hopefully c
