On Game 4 vs. Anaheim

"You're not going to get that on a regular season game, but we get it better than anybody else. I do believe, and I'll say this just as much from talking to people on the street — people that come up to you and talk about your hockey team — that they did appreciate the effort. We're going to try and make things better for next year, beyond our effort. But there was an appreciation there and the
fans showed it."

WINNIPEG – When Michael Spacek finished off a 2-on-1 rush with teammate Brandon Denham to give Team Roy a 6-5 overtime win over Team Keane, the 2015 development camp came to a close.

Coordinator of Player Development (and winning head coach) Jimmy Roy said he couldn’t be happier with how the whole week progressed.

“I've learned a lot about some players, and I think they've learned a lot about our organization,” Roy said. “Especially with the new players coming in that we've just drafted. You get to know them, and get to know their personalities a little bit. What they like doing on the ice, off the ice, and what
they need improvement on.”

WINNIPEG
– While watching prospects at MTS Iceplex at this week’s development camp, it can be easy to pull up their stats from last season to see if they improved. But goals, assists, and points don’t always tell the whole story.

The Winnipeg Jets staff, specifically Director of Fitness Dr. Craig Slaunwhite, isn’t putting the emphasis on those numbers though. He’s more interested in the development he sees off the ice.

“I just really try to emphasize the importance of off-ice conditioning, strengthening and nutrition. For the most part, players at this age have been playing their whole life, they've been playing hockey a long time, so their skill set has had a lot more time to develop on the ice than off the ice,” said Slaunwhite, a former national level decathlete in his own right. “So that's the area they're going to see the biggest improvement in their games, if they're able to focus their attention to their off-ice training.”

WINNIPEG
-- When Jansen Harkins put on a Winnipeg Jets jersey at the NHL Draft in Florida, he was about to begin a circuit of media interviews, photo shoots, and autograph signings.

Fast-forward less than two weeks to development camp, and Harkins is still enjoying every minute.

“Any time you get to put on an NHL jersey or even talk to anyone in the NHL, it's exciting,” the 47th overall pick said. “You don't really do much of that until this past year. It definitely hasn't gotten
old, and I really enjoy being in Winnipeg.”

The Cleveland, Ohio native is getting his first taste of life as a professional hockey player this week. All he wants out of this camp, is to put his best foot forward.
