Selected by Winnipeg Jets round 5 #127 overall 2013 NHL Entry Draft
With the 114th pick, acquired in a trade with Washington, the Winnipeg Jets select Jan Kostalek from Rimouski QMJHL. The defenseman from Prague, Czech Republic played in 48 games for the Oceanic, putting up 5 goals and 13 assists.
With the first pick of the fourth round & sixth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, the Winnipeg Jets select forward Andrew Copp (104th overall) from University of Michigan.
Michigan Associate Head Coach at the University of Michigan Billy Powers, commented on Copp.
"Andrew came to us from the NTDP, but he was really a part-time player for them in a way. He was a pretty elite high school quarterback and played football through Thanksgiving, so this was his first year focusing on one sport. We knew he was a character kid who had the ability to play a defensive role, but in the second half he really showed that there’s more to him on the offensive side. He has good puck vision and hockey sense, and he loves to go to the tough areas. He was overlooked last year but we really feel as a staff that a team will be very fortunate to get him this time around."
Copp was in New Jersey so we had a chance to chat with him about being drafted and his experience playing with Jets defenseman, Jacob Trouba.
To wrap up the 3rd round, the Winnipeg Jets selected J.C Lipon from the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League. The Regina, Saskatchewan native tallied 89 points (36g, 53a) in 61 games. He was not present at the NHL Draft in New Jersey so we'll have to wait a couple of weeks when the Jets hold their Development Camp.
