Jordan Greenway

Minnesota Wild
James Lang

Fantasy Summary

Greenway managed to produce using his size and speed in the NCAA, and ideally that should translate to the NHL well, but time will tell. Early reviews are promising, and he may be a great middle six option with PK/PP upside.

Observations

October 2018Greenway has done all the right things in camp and the preseason making the Wild’s opening day roster. Lots of ink has been spilled about the big-bodied power forward and deservingly so. Coach Boudreau mused moving Greenway from right wing to center early in camp and that’s exactly what happened. He has received a long look at center flanked by Joel Eriksson-Ek and Charlie Coyle during preseason action. The line showed great chemistry and that should continue into the season. The only hiccup to a permanent spot at center is his work in the dot, which needs to improve. Greenway has also been featured as the net front on the power play which should excite poolies. To stack on more praise, his size and strength has been drawing opposing team penalties at a good clip as well.  All and all he’s a great own in dynasty leagues especially those that count hits. Power forwards are notorious for taking longer to peak and I don’t expect Jordan to be any different. That being said, he will get results early and often this season and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him flirt with 35 points or more. Tyler Matson

 

April 2018 – Greenway had one heck of a year, finishing up his NCAA career at Boston U with another point per game campaign. The gigantic winger landed himself an NHL contract and tryout, as well as a spot on the US Olympic team. While the production wasn’t there, Greenway was a physical force, and appears to have brought that style of play to the NHL. He’s a massive, powerful winger who can skate with offensive upside. I see a long career out of him as a thorn in the side of teams in many situations and the sky is the limit for someone with his skillset. Will Scouch

Februrary 2018 – Greenway’s excellent physical game has earned him a spot on the US Olympic Team in Pyeongchang. He likely will start in a more limited role, but his upside is high in a tournament like this. He’s massive, plays heavy, skates very well for his size, and can produce points. That skillset is hard to find and hard to coach against, so his future is bright, even beyond the Olympics. He may not be a top line gamebreaker at the next level, but he will at the very least be an effective two way talent with great tools for a penalty killer. Will Scouch

 

May 2017 – It was hard to miss hearing Jordan Greenway’s name around NHL prospect circles, especially surrounding his exceptional World Junior performance. He showed his dominant power abilities and seemed ready to take the next step in his career. As of writing, he is still unsigned, but his physical dominance and ability to produce points leads me to believe that he is ready if he chooses to leave Boston University. Another shot at a national title is tempting, but the Wild seem ready to compete, and after the disappointment of this season, they will be looking for any help they can get. Greenway managed to land himself a spot on the USA’s IIHF World Championship team, and while he didn’t register a point, making that team is always a good sign. Greenway cooled down a bit down the stretch, but his raw power game should translate well to the NHL, and his intensity level indicates to me that he could be ready sooner rather than later, even if he stays in school another year.  Will Scouch

 

August 2016 – Jordan Greenway is still one of the more promising talents in the system but he’ll need to pick up the pace if he’s to prove he’s ready for the next step. Despite being one of the larger players that reported for duty at development camp, he struggled to stand out or make his presence felt. He’ll most likely be sent back to the NCAA to better nurture his offensive repertoire. Edric Joseph

 

July 2016 – Jordan Greenway made good progress in his first year at Boston University, even managing to suit up for all 39 games during his freshman tenure. He has the makings of a top-six forward if he can get use to the professional league pace. He’s a safe bet to return to Boston for his sophomore campaign where he’ll polish his offensive repertoire to better prepare himself for the next step. Edric Joseph

June 2015 – With the 50th overall pick of the 2015 NHL entry draft, the Minnesota Wild selected Jordan Greenway from the US NTDP U18 team. He plays a power forward’s game but is still growing into his large frame when it comes to skill. While his game is not nearly as polished as that of other big talents in the draft like Zacha or Crouse he comes with less risk having been selected in the second round. While his offensive game was starting to announce itself with 44 points through 53 games his physical contributions didn’t waver as he still mustered 50 penalty minutes in that same time frame. Still two to three years away from making the big team, he gives them the Wild a nice investment to stash away for a while so his offense can catch up with his truculence. Edric Joseph
