It was a busy Day 2 in Vancouver and in case you missed any of the action we have you covered. The Jets made a total of five picks (two centres, two defencemen and a goalie):
1st round – Ville Heinola (20th overall)
2nd round – Simon Lundmark (51st overall)
3rd round – No pick
4th round – Henri Nikkanen (113th overall)
5th round – Harrison Blaisdell (134th overall)
5th round – Logan Neaton (144th overall)
6th round – No pick
7th round – No pick
We have all of the interviews (audio & video) available of the Jets draft selections that were in attendance at Rogers Arena.
Day 2 of the draft ended with Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff speaking with the media in Vancouver as well as a chat with us on The Illegal Curve Hockey Show which you can listen to here. Jets Director of amateur scouting Mark Hillier reflected on the draft once it concluded and had some interesting comments on how his team did this weekend. You can listen to that interview here.
There won’t be any time for rest as the Jets kick off their development camp on Tuesday (full schedule here) at the IcePlex. I (@icdave on twitter) will be there as usual covering for illegalcurve.com.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
