    I was checking to see what happened to Zach Yuen. I see that he was not drafted this time around, does this mean the Jets were smart not to sign him? Did his agent want too much, does anyone know what happened or what will happen to him now?

    He was invited to the Dallas Stars prospect camp and will be attending that I believe.

    Thanks, I just checked their list. Any idea what turned the jets away from him?

    Still hasn’t been disclosed.

    Did find it interesting that he wasn’t re-drafted last Sunday.

    Another Jet 2011 draft pick Aaron Harstad, who is not invited to the prospect camp, played for Colorado college this past winter. Did his value simply drop off? I know that there have been some amazing players drafted as low as this kid in past history, maybe the NHL should just cut the draft down to 3 rounds? I wonder how much assistance is given to someone like this, to tell them you need to do these things in order for you to make it. Seems like a big time waste.
