Players to Watch:

  • RW – Shane Doan – One of the last remaining original Winnipeg Jets, Doan has served as captain of this franchise for a very long time. Over 18 seasons, he has posted 361 goals, 520 assists and 881 points, which are all franchise records, by far.
  • C – Keith Tkachuk – Tkachuk was the franchises first captain. He was a point-per-game player for the Yotes as he posted 334 points in 332 games played. He spent five seasons with the team, but the last four was injury-ridden as he never played more than 70 games in a season.
  • D – Teppo Numminen – In the early days of the franchise, Numminen was the team’s best defenseman. In seven seasons as a Coyote, Numminen appeared in 551 games, which is third-most in franchise history. The ’97-’98 season was his best as he posted 11 goals, 40 assists and 51 points in 82 games played and was a +25.

The tournament results will be posted on the next weekday at 1 pm EST!
