Winnipeg Jets need a second center line, and Cole Perfetti fits the bill

The Jets used their 10th overall first-round pick to select the Ontario product on Tuesday in the NHL annual draft

“It’s amazing Words don’t even describe it,” Perfetti told the CJOB Sports Show “I dreamed of this day Being chosen by an organization like the Winnipeg Jets – it’s an honor and j can’t wait to get there and start playing « 

Perfetti scored 37 goals with 74 assists for 111 points in just 61 games last season He also scored 37 goals in his OHL rookie season

“There are a lot of great players that I try to model my game on,” said Perfetti “But to some extent I think my style of play is unique I think my IQ in hockey is this that makes me who I am And I also have this ability to score, and to be that threat in the attacking zone But I can also play that role from 200 feet « 

« Everyone was delighted with their hockey IQ and intelligence, » said general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff « The work we did a bit outside of those meetings too – people loved his character. And then obviously his stats and his on-ice play speak for themselves »

In a non-hockey talent, Perfetti can also solve a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute

“When I was younger I thought it was the coolest thing” he said “Not knowing how to do it really bothered me I wanted to know and prove a little to all my friends they were wrong and wow them So I went on You Tube one day when I was 12 and just decided to give it a try It took about two hours to learn and since then I have been able to do it  »

This is the first time the Jets have selected a Canadian with their first draft pick since Josh Morrissey in 13th place in 2013

No player called on stage this year as the draft is taking place virtually The late Dale Hawerchuk’s wife, Crystal, announced the Jets’ first round selection via webcam
