The Winnipeg Jets will leave Penticton, B.C., on a winning note.

A group of Jets prospects defeated a young Calgary Flames squad 4-1 Monday afternoon to close out the annual Young Stars Classic hockey tournament.

The Jets finished the tournament with a 1-2 record after earlier losses to Vancouver and Edmonton.

Promising blue-liner Tucker Poolman played his first game of the tournament for Winnipeg. He is coming off double shoulder surgery during the summer.

Jansen Harkins, 20, drafted in the second round (47th overall) in 2015, fired a pair of goals for Winnipeg, while Cristiano DiGiacinto, who recently finished a terrific junior career with the Memorial Cup-champion Windsor Spitfires and was invited to the Jets rookie camp, also scored.

Another camp invitee, Kristian Reichel of the Czech Republic centre, the son of longtime NHL forward Robert Reichel, scored an empty-net goal for the Jets, who trailed 1-0 after 20 minutes but took a 2-1 lead into the final period.

Winnipeg goalie Mikhail Berdin, a sixth-round pick in 2016, didn't have a busy day as his teammates outshot Calgary 35-10.
