The IC team aims to keep you up-to-date with all the latest stats on the Jets 2011 Entry Draft prospect class.
In the realm of dark horse prospect’s, Michael Forney may be one of those guys who you should have seen coming, but didn’t. A 2006 3rd rounder (80th overall) by the Thrashers, Forney is a product of the Thief River Falls, MN high school hockey program. A very promising high school player, Forney attempted to […]
