Patrik Laine will have 'opportunity to excel'
Patrik Laine will have every opportunity to make the Jets roster, according to head coach Paul Maurice.Advice
: "He's certainly going to be given the opportunity to excel right out of the gate," Maurice said. "I had another No. 2 overall pick when I was coach in Carolina in Eric Staal. In training camp and over the first half of the year, you could see the things Eric wanted to do and you knew, because of who he was, that he would be able to do it. It was just a matter of time." The Jets selected Laine with the second overall pick in the 2016 draft. Assuming he sticks with Winnipeg, he should be in contention for the Calder Trophy. Rotoworld.com
