A much covered draft pick is Lukas Sutter - from the renowned Sutter hockey family. He was picked in the second round. Defenceman Jacob Trouba was also picked by the Jets, in the first round.
Lukas Sutter's dad and five uncles have garnered 3000 points in under 5000 games. When summing up Lukas Sutter's points throughout his time in the AJHL and WHL we get a total of 79 points for the 150 games he played in the various league. Last season, playing in the WHL for the Saskatoon Blades, he earned 59 points while in a season where he played 70 games, working out to 0.843 points per game played. It will be interesting to see how this translates into the heavier talent NHL, but as an early pick he's an anticipated up and coming player, from a talented hockey family. He should help the Jets moving forward.

All in all, I hope to see the Jets improve in standings from last year as the team's perfected. Hopefully, the team will be playoff material in the near future.
