We must be getting closer to the start of the NHL season with the Jets announcing their group of young prospects heading to British Columbia for the Young Stars Classic.

Jets Release:

The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club today announced their roster for the 2017 Rookie Camp that will attend the 2017 Young Stars Classic in Penticton, B.C. from Sept. 7-11.

The group playing in Penticton will be on the ice together for the first time at Bell MTS Iceplex on Sept. 7 at 12:30 pm.

Players suiting up for the Winnipeg Jets in this year’s Young Stars Classic include event veterans Mikhail Berdin, Jansen Harkins, Jamie Phillips, Michael Spacek, Jordy Stallard, and Logan Stanley, along with two of Winnipeg’s 2017 NHL Draft selections, Leon Gawanke and Skyler McKenzie, who are participating in their first-ever Young Stars Classic.

Broadcast partner TSN 1290 will carry all three Jets games from the Young Stars Classic, called by the radio play-by-play voices of the Jets, Dennis Beyak and Paul Edmonds. Fans can watch the games online live on www.winnipegjets.com, featuring Brian Munz. The Jets’ website is the home for game recaps, interviews, and exclusive coverage from Jets TV during the Young Stars Classic.

This season marks the sixth time the Winnipeg Jets are taking part in the Young Stars Classic, hosted by the Vancouver Canucks. The Jets have participated since their inaugural season in 2011-12, while the tournament was cancelled in 2012 due to the NHL’s work stoppage.

Here is the list of attendees.
