NEWARK – The Winnipeg Jets continue to stock their prospect cupboard here at the NHL Draft.
The Jets have acquired winger Michael Frolik from the Chicago Blackhawks for 2013 third round draft pick (74th) and 2013 fifth round draft pick (134th).
The 25-year-old Frolik is a two-time 20-goal scorer in the NHL and scored three goals and seven assists in the Blackhawks recent run to the Stanley Cup.
Frolik is from the Czech Republic and has one year left on his contract that will pay him $1.9 million this year.
Frolik will add some skill to the Jets' forward group and will immediately be slated in on the right wing to go with centre Ollie Jokinen and left wing Evander Kane.
The Jets used their first pick of the third round, 84th overall – acquired from the Washington Capitals earlier – to select Saginaw Spirit forward Jimmy Lodge. A 6-1 centre still putting on pounds, he had 28 goals and 39 assists in 64 games this year. He was ranked 64th by The Hockey News heading into the draft.
With their second pick, 91st overall, the Jets selected Kamloops Blazers right winger J.C. Lipon, who had 36 goals and 53 assists in 61 games this year
