JT Compher Signs Entry Level Deal With Colorado Avalanche

The University of Michigan captain will forgo his senior year and join the Colorado Avalanche organization. When the University of Michigan concluded its season earlier this month in the NCAA playoffs, there was quite a bit of talk about JT Compher returning next season to play his senior year. The Wolverines' captain had just put up the best numbers of his college career, scoring 63 points in 37 games, and some thought he could instead opt for free agency after 2016-17 like Jimmy Vesey had recently done with Nashville (or Blake Wheeler, Kevin Hayes, and Justin Schultz before him). That...

Season Review: Blake Wheeler

Blake Wheeler had his best offensive season of his career, but will this be enough for him to want to stay. Blake Wheeler finally got the attention from the NHL that he deserves for being a very good first line player. He also stepped into the departed Andrew Ladd's shoes as a leader even before Ladd was traded. In short, Wheeler had another good season. There are a few questions surrounding him though. Wheeler was a first line winger all season and even last season. This is the first year that Wheeler has been acknowledged by the NHL as being the first line player that he is. His counting...

Final Four (Games Left) - Jets v. Wild

The Jets close out the home portion of their 2015-16 campaign against the Minnesota Wild. Well folks. This is it. After tonight, the Winnipeg Jets will have no more home games this season. Safe to say not many in Jetsland are sad about the end of this season, but thankfully at least we have the future. Even Blake Wheeler in an interview today said that "Hockey News picked us to win it all in 2020. I don’t know if I’ll still be here then.We do have a bright future". It's hard to tell if this is a sign of distrusting management or something different, but even the players can see that...
