It has been quite the 2019-20 campaign for Jets 2015 2nd round draft pick Jansen Harkins. Harkins has put up 31 points in 30 AHL games this year, which matches his entire points total from the 2018-19 season in 40 fewer games.

Harkins was recalled for the first time by the Jets in mid-December and has played in 11 regular season games (two assists).  He was selected in early January to represent the Manitoba Moose at the 2020 AHL All-Star game.

Harkins wasn’t reassigned with the three guys (Schilling, Vesalainen and Nogier) on Thursday for the Moose games this weekend in Iowa.  This move is simply so he can participate in the All-Star festivities which kick off with the skills competition tonight and conclude with the game on Monday in Ontario, California.

According to the Moose he will participate in three events including:

1) Puck Control Relay;
2) Pass and Score;
3) Breakaway Relay.
