THE 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 from Sept. 5-9.
The event will feature prospects from the Jets, Canucks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks.
The Jets finished the 2011 tournament with a 2-1 record with Scheifele as the team's leading scorer after three games (two goals, one assist).
