Observations

November 2017 – The Winnipeg Jets’ third-round pick in 2017 is off to a good start in his sophomore year at Merrimack College as he ranks second amongst defensemen in scoring with a goal and nine points. Kovacevic is a rare combination of size and skill on the blueline that NHL GM’s covet and he showed flashes during Jets training camp in September. He’s a bit of a late bloomer being drafted in his age 20 season, but at 6-4 and 208 lbs. the Jets have themselves another big, able body on the backend. Jamie Zadow
