RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
With Alexander Burmistrov leaving the Jets to continue his career in Russia, Scheifele is likely to play his first full NHL season this year. Although he failed to record a point in four games with the team last year, the Jets' 2011 first round pick did manage an outstanding 30 goals and 49 assists in just 45 games with the OHL's Barrie Colts last season. If you like to gamble on a young up-and-coming star late in your fantasy draft, Scheifele should be one of the names you consider. Be warned, however, that he's not necessarily going to provide star-level numbers right out of the gate, as he'll be given a chance to develop. He also is by no means a shoo-in to be on the team's top two offensive lines to start his big league career.
Scheifele split his time in 2011-2012 between the Ontario Hockey League, the AHL, and the NHL, scoring one goal in seven games to begin the seasons before Winnipeg sent him back juniors. Though the 19 year-old did not dazzle during his short time with the big club, his potential is undeniable. The Jets used a seventh-overall pick on this very raw Ontario native in 2011, understanding that he would require some seasoning in the minors, and for owners in long-term dynasty formats, Scheifele makes for a great upside pick.
