Mark Jankowski isn't discouraged that people are rating Sean Monahan and Sam Bennett over him when it comes to the Flames' top center prospects.
"I don't really pay attention to that," Jankowski said. "All I know is I'm really excited to be a Flame, and I know the management here is really excited to have me … Since the new management came in, I've had some talks with them, and they made me feel welcome and made me feel like I'm a part of this, like I'm a part of their plan." Jankowski had 13 goals and 25 points in 39 games with Providence College in 2013-14. The Flames took him with the 21st overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He was always regarded as a long-term project and isn't expected to play in the NHL next season. Jul 7 - 9:25 AM

Flames first-round pick Mark Jankowski will be attending Providence College next year rather than playing in the United States Hockey League.

It was originally expected that he'd spend one season with the the Junior A-level Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL, but the 17-year-old (he won't turn 18 for another six weeks) forward has decided to go to school this fall. "I just think I'm ready to jump in and make the jump to NCAA hockey next year," he said. "Part of that decision came when I was at the development camp and I saw how well I played there against a lot of players who have already had a lot more experience and a lot of older players. And with their schedule, they don't play as many games and it's all on the weekends, so I get a lot more time to get in the weight-room and get bigger and stronger, which is very important to me."

The Calgary Flames are looking at Mark Jankowski as a long-term project.

"He’s a long way away," said Flames assistant GM John Weisbrod, "he’s raw, he’s young, he’s still got to cross the crocodile-infested waters and develop properly — like, it’s a long way from draft day to play in the NHL — but the physical attributes this guy has. The athleticism. The skating. The hands. The fact that he’ll likely be playing at six-four, 215. I’ve said it to our scouts all week long — he’s Joe Nieuwendyk." That's certainly high praise, although it will probably be a while before we find out if it's true. The Flames certainly surprised people with this pick, as he was not projected to go in the first round.

The Calgary Flames arguably made the first truly "off the board" selection by grabbing Mark Jankowski with the 21st pick.

Jankowski has some hockey roots, but it didn't help him draw a ton of attention - at least from a first-round perspective. He's six-foot-two but just 170 lbs. so he'll probably take quite a while to make it to the NHL level. One thing he does have is scoring instincts, however, particularly when it comes to passing. Time will tell if Flames GM Jay Feaster ends up looking shrewd or silly by making this pick.
