Winnipeg Jets 2021 3rd Round Draft Pick (82nd overall): Dmitry Kuzmin

Meet the Jets 3rd round pick.

With the 82nd pick of the draft the Jets took left shot 5’10 defenceman Dmitry Kuzmin who played for Dinamo-Molodechno in Belarus and who was selected by Flint of the OHL in the Import Draft.

Here is how he was ranked ahead of the draft according to Eliteprospects:

Ranked #42 by ELITEPROSPECTS.COM
Ranked #165 by FCHOCKEY
Ranked #91 by TSN/BOB McKENZIE
Ranked #73 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #72 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters)
Ranked #83 by RECRUIT SCOUTING
Ranked #63 by DOBBERPROSPECTS
Ranked #93 by DRAFT PROSPECTS HOCKEY
Ranked #59 by SMAHT SCOUTING

Here is what Elite Prospect said about him:

He works give-and-goes from the point, reads hands-offs, fills space, and stays low when activated — an offensive zone possession extender. There’s no locking to the point — he skates down the middle or down low when the puck comes to the point, then he dips behind his man and cuts inside. -EliteProspects 2021 NHL Draft Guide

The Jets remain off but both the Moose and Ice are in action tomorrow.

Manitoba will be in Milwaukee to take on the Admirals.

Ice will be in Brandon to take on the Wheat Kings.
