Although the numbers don't show it, Jake Virtanen has been improving in the minors.
Virtanen was selected sixth overall in 2014 but has yet to make a significant dent in the NHL as he had only seven goals and 13 points last season in 55 games and was sent to the minors this season after only one helper in 10 games. He has four AHL goals and seven points in 24 games but coach Travis Green has been impressed. "He has come here with a good attitude," said Green. "Sometimes, when players come down, it’s hard to get them into a mindset, but that hasn’t been the case since Day 1 with Jake. He has put in the work because when he first got here, playing 15 minutes was hard and he’s handling them well now. He’s getting to play a lot of minutes and getting practices during the week that he doesn’t get in the NHL and that’s all positive stuff for him. And I’m not concerned about his points because we don’t have an offensive group here and we’re constantly changing our lines. We want Jake to develop into a good pro who can play a 200-foot game."
