Marko Dano netted the game-winning goal for Slovakia in overtime to defeat the United States by a score of 3-2.

However, it wasn't enough to get Slovakia into the quarterfinal round, as they needed a regulation time victory. Dano had a goal and an assist in six outings at the 2016 IIHF World Championship.

Mark Scheifele believes "the more hockey you play, the better you are" so he jumped at the chance to compete in the World Championship with Team Canada.

"Well, I'm a hockey player," he said. "I want to play as much as I can. Obviously, you want to be playing at this time of year, in the Stanley Cup playoffs and fighting your way with your club team through the playoffs. When you're not doing that, you want to be playing and to be able to represent your country, come overseas and play in this tournament, you can learn a lot of things from it." He suited up for Canada in 2014, where he notched two goals and four assists in eight games. Scheifele recorded career highs in 2015-16 with 29 goals and 61 points in 71 games.

Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff admitted that he was nervous during the draft lottery.

Winnipeg was one of the lucky teams in the lottery. They moved up from sixth overall to second and Cheveldayoff admitted he was nervous as the results were being shown. "At least you knew you weren't going to move backwards in the order and (at six), that's when the heart starts pumping and the legs start shaking a little," Cheveldayoff said in a telephone interview from Toronto. "I couldn't even tell you who was the team that came up." Although we won't know until the draft actually takes place, there's a good chance the Jets will land Finnish prospect Patrik Laine with the second pick.

Despite finishing 24th overall in the League during 2015-16, the Winnipeg Jets won the second overall slot in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Assuming that Toronto goes with consensus top-pick Auston Matthews first overall, that'll leave Winnipeg to choose between stand-out Finns Patrick Laine and Jesse Puljujarvi. What a great position to be in.
Apr 30 - 8:41 PM

Tucker Poolman has decided to return to the University of North Dakota for the 2016-17 campaign.

Poolman was taken by the Winnipeg Jets with the 127th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He had five goals and 24 points in 40 NCAA games in 2015-16.
Apr 22 - 5:44 PM

Ondrej Pavelec won't play in the World Championships for the Czech Republic.

A report on a Czech news website said that Pavelec didn't pass his end-of-season medical due to a knee problem, but the Jets denied part of that. Pavelec did pass his test, but was advised to rest his ailing knee over the summer because he will be participating in September's World Cup of Hockey.

Blake Wheeler could be the next captain of the Winnipeg Jets.

"Obviously everyone wants to wear the 'C'," said Wheeler Monday. "There's a lot of pride that comes with that. Given that opportunity I would respect that and wear it with pride. That being said, there's going to be a lot of conversations had internally to try and find out who the best fit is for the organization." The Jets will probably have those discussions in the off-season after Andrew Ladd was traded to Chicago this year. Wheeler stood up as the leader of the club after Ladd's departure.
Apr 11 - 3:49 PM

Kyle Connor has signed an entry-level deal with Winnipeg.

He led the NCAA in scoring as a freshman with 35 goals and 71 points in 38 games with the University of Michigan. Connor, who was the 17th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft by the Jets, didn't win the Hobey Baker Award and he was left off Team USA's roster for the 2016 World Junior Championship, but he has been rewarded with his first pro deal. He did capture the Tim Taylor Award as the national rookie of the year, though.
Apr 11 - 12:01 PM

Brenden Kichton has been returned to the minors.

The Jets announced the reassignment on Sunday. Kichton did not see any NHL action with the Jets. In 65 AHL games for the Moose this season, he has 10 goals 38 points.
Apr 11 - 11:54 AM

Mark Scheifele finished the 2015-16 season on a 10-game point streak.

Scheifele fell just short of hitting the 30-goal mark, but he took a huge step forward in 2015-16. He surpassed his previous career-highs in goals and points by a wide margin. The 23-year-old finished the year with 29 goals and 61 points in 71 games this season. His point totals have steadily increased in each of his first three seasons (34, 49, 61). If that trend continues, he could become of the better point-producing forwards in the league.
Apr 10 - 10:08 AM

Andrew Copp ended his season on a two game scoring streak.

Copp finishes with seven goals and 13 points through 77 games. So not enough to warrant consideration in next season's draft.
Apr 10 - 3:06 AM

Blake Wheeler ended his season on an 11 game point streak.

Wheeler picked up a goal and an assist, bringing his total up to eight goals and 16 points during the streak. He also finishes at 26 goals and 78 points across all 82 games. Considering everything Winnipeg went through this season, that's simply remarkable.
Apr 10 - 3:05 AM

Nikolaj Ehlers capped his rookie season in style during Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over LA.

Ehlers scored a goal and picked up an assist in the effort. He finishes with 15 goals and 38 points in 72 games. Pretty solid for the 20-year-old.
Apr 10 - 3:04 AM

Ondrej Pavelec ended his crummy season with a 4-3 shootout win over the Kings.

Pavelec turned away 26 of 29 shots, including his lone shot on special teams. His record finalizes at 13-13-4 with a .904 save percentage and a 2.78 GAA.
