Mark Scheifele assisted on a second-period goal as the Winnipeg Jets loss 5-2 to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Scheifele's pass was one-timed by Kyle Connor for a goal that cut the Blue Jackets' lead, but the Jets never really threatened in this game. While the Jets struggle to find their starting goaltender, Scheifele has slowly scored a point per game and has six on the season. He had 82 points in 79 games last season and has a strong chance to top that this year. Oct 17 - 11:06 PM

Mark Scheifele posted a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating with a blocked shot and two hits in Monday's victory in Edmonton.

Scheifele has certainly fired out of the chute, notching goals in each of his three games so far this season while chipping in with two helpers. He sees plenty of time on the man advantage, posting a power-play goal and an assist over the past two outings. He posted 82 points last season and is on track for a monster season at this rate.

Mark Scheifele found the back of the net in Wednesday's ugly 7-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

That's not the way this talented Winnipeg team wanted to start the season. The Jets found themselves down 3-0 after the first period, 4-0 after the second frame and 6-0 when Scheifele got them on the board in the third. The Jets forward is coming off an impressive year that saw him put up 32 goals and 82 points in 79 games. He has the talent to surpass those numbers this year. Mathieu Perreault also scored for the Jets in the defeat.

Mark Scheifele said he's "pushing to be better than Connor, better than Sid" as he enters his fifth full NHL season.

Only McDavid, Crosby, Patrick Kane, Nicklas Backstrom, Nikita Kucherov and Brad Marchand finished ahead of Scheifele in scoring last season. "Obviously they're pretty lofty goals," Scheifele said. "Those guys are special players. They work unbelievably hard at their game. But at one time last year, I was top in the league in scoring." Scheifele has spent the off-season working with Gary Roberts on conditioning and with Adam Oates on skills. He is hoping to improve his power-play numbers this year after he recorded just 15 points on the man advantage in 2016-17.

Paul Maurice says Mark Scheifele will be the captain of the Jets one day.

"Mark Scheifele is going to be the captain of this hockey team at some point in his career for sure," said Maurice. "He is, in so many ways, the driver of that offense. Blake (Wheeler) is a big part of it; Mark, as a centreman, certainly drives it." The 24-year-old had a terrific season in 2016-17, as he scored 32 goals and 82 points in 79 games. Wheeler is currently the team's captain, but as Maurice said, Scheifele could very well be the next in line.

Speaking in Q&A with Yahoo Sports, Mark Scheifele was quick to point to his off-season training with Adam Oates and Gary Roberts as the main reason for his success this season.

"I’m a guy that likes to continue to work on my game no matter how it goes. I always want to get better. I always want to be one of the best in the world." said Scheifele. Obviously it was a lot of work with Gary Roberts and Adam Oates. Those guys I saw a lot in the summer and helped me with my game. That’s something I’m going to continue to do because in this league you can’t be complacent, you can’t be satisfied with just being where you’re at, you have to push for more." Scheifele finished the season 7th in the league in scoring with 82 points in 79 games this season. He also mentioned that he and his Jets teammates need to be more consistent next season if they wish to make the post-season. A link to the Q&A can be found below.
