While the Jets season may be over the real work has already begun. Winnipeg’s management and scouts have been busy all year evaluating their talent on the Jets, IceCaps and Eagles. They’ve been scouting the other 29 organizations, the juniors, the college ranks, Europe and anywhere else they are playing high level hockey.
The NHL entry draft order will be determined on Tuesday, April 12 when the draft lottery is held. Winnipeg will select ninth overall unless their 2.7% chance of winning the lottery happens, which would mean they would move up and select fifth.
On this weeks Jets Hockey Podcast we will have a special guest Shane Malloy, co-host of Hockey Prospect Radio on Sirius XM Home Ice and author of “The Art of Scouting”. Shane will be on the air with us or the majority of the show and we’ll talk to him about what a scout does. What the Jets prospects are looking like and the upcoming draft.
He will be answering our questions and yours. The easiest way to ask him about the Jets future is to call in to our toll-free number 1-855-321-JETS (5381) anytime before Thursday at noon. You can also email us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can tweet them to us @wpg_whiteout with hashtag #JHP
We are very excited to have Shane on our first offseason episode of Jets Hockey Podcast and get the best insight into what the Jets will do to build towards becoming a cup contender.
