Winnipeg Jets draft picks playing in college or the USHL (Update IV)

With college hockey and USHL underway in the US we get an update on Jets draft picks.

We’ve been keeping you up-to-date with what is happening overseas with Jets prospects and today we take our latest look at what is doing with Jets draft picks who are playing college hockey (or in the UHSL).

With the NHL and AHL season underway it has been awhile since our last update (just over a month to be precise).

University of Minnesota (Big 10): 3 GP 2W 0L 3.45 GAA .852 save%.
