Jets will participate in 2013 Canucks Young Stars Classic

  • Print

Winnipeg Jets got their first look at the likes of Mark Scheifele, Eddie Pasquale and Adam Lowry two years ago at the Vancouver Canucks Young Stars Classic.

And, after a year hiatus due to last fall’s NHL lockout, the organization’s best prospects will be heading back to Penticton, B.C. to do it all over again.

The Jets announced Thursday they will participate again in the Canucks tournament, 2013 version, which will take place in Penticton B.C. from Sept. 5 to Sept. 9th.

The event will feature prospects from the Jets, Canucks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, and San Jose Sharks.

"We are pleased to have our prospects attend the Young Stars Classic in Penticton for the second time," said Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff in a press release. "This is a prime opportunity for us to get a closer look at our prospects in game situations as well as evaluate their development over the summer months."

The Jets finished the 2011 tournament with a 2-1 record with Scheifele the team’s leading scorer after three games (2G, 1A).
