Jets announce they have signed their other 2016 1st round pick. We had TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show back on November 19th and I asked him to give us an update on the Jets 2016 1st round pick (18th overall).
Here is what the prospect had to say via instagram:
The Winnipeg Jets announced today that the hockey club has agreed to terms with 2016 first-round pick, and 18th overall selection, Logan Stanley on a three-year NHL Entry-Level Contract worth an average annual value of $1,137,500.
Stanley, 18, is in his third season with the Ontario Hockey League’s Windsor Spitfires. This season, the defenceman has nine points (2G, 7A) in 20 games. The native of Waterloo, Ont. was Winnipeg’s second first-round selection at the 2016 NHL Draft. The original pick was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks along with Marko Dano in exchange for Andrew Ladd. Winnipeg then moved up to select Stanley 18th over-all in a draft day trade with the Philadelphia Flyers.
Over his OHL career, Stanley has 30 points (7G, 23A) in 143 games. He represented Canada at the 2016 IIHF World U18 Championship registering one assist in seven games.
