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.

Patrik Laine has been named a finalist for the Calder Trophy, which goes annually to the NHL's top rookie.

Laine finished the 2016-17 season second among NHL rookies with 34 goals and 64 points in 73 games. His goal total also ranked him seventh overall in league. Toronto's Auston Matthews and Columbus' Zach Werenski are the other finalists for the Calder Trophy. Laine was neck and neck with Matthews for most of the season, but the Leafs center gained some separation down the stretch to make him the favorite for the award. Still, it was an incredible introduction to NHL action for the Jets winger and it won't be long before he is challenging for 50 goals.
