The big defenceman who the Jets took with their second pick in the 1st round of the 2016 entry draft has been reassigned by the team to their AHL affiliate Manitoba Moose who are currently in a 0-2 hole in their 2nd round series with the IceHogs. Stanley joined the team once his OHL season with the Kitchener Rangers concluded. He was in the pressbox for the first pair of home games here in Winnipeg against Rockford. Perhaps this means we will see the prospect crack the Moose lineup for game 3 which goes Wednesday night. Stay tuned.
The Manitoba Moose announced today the Winnipeg Jets have reassigned defenceman Logan Stanley from the Kitchener Rangers (OHL) to the Moose.
Stanley, 19, was a first round selection, 18th overall, of the Winnipeg Jets in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The 6’7, 231 lbs. defender had a career season with Kitchener, posting 42 points (15G, 27A) and 111 penalty minutes in 61 games. Stanley was named the club’s Best Offensive Defenceman for the campaign. The Waterloo, Ont. native also recorded 16 points (4G, 12A) in 19 playoff games, and was awarded the Rangers’ co-playoff MVP as Kitchener reached the OHL Western Conference Final.
