Sneak Peek- Winnipeg Jets Prospects Already in the System
Illegal Curve Scouting Correspondent Kyle Kosior and I have been working on a comprehensive Winnipeg Jets Prospects article for a book/magazine that will be available this fall.
Here is a sneak peek of a prospect report I wrote on goaltender Edward Pasquale.
Edward Pasquale- G (4th round, 117th overall in 2009 from Saginaw Spirit of the OHL)- 20-year-old Edward Pasquale is currently fourth on Winnipeg’s goaltending depth chart (behind Ondrej Pavelec, Chris Mason and Peter Mannino) and will play for the new AHL team in St.John’s, Newfoundland to start the season. The Toronto native split backstopping duties between the AHL’s Chicago Wolves and the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators last season, posting a 11-11-1 record, one shutout and a save percentage of .900 in 24 games for the Wolves and a 7-4 record with an .898 Save Percentage for the Gladiators. Pasquale has great size for a goalie (6’2’’, 220) and has very good lateral movement in the crease. Barring a significant injury, Pasquale will start somewhere in the neighbourhood of 30-40 games for St.John’s this season. The good news is even if Pasquale never plays a game in Winnipeg next year, there is already a restaurant in town named after him. Click here to check out Pasquale’s Restaurant in Winnipeg.
