With the 7th pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the Winnipeg Jets select Mark Scheifele, a center from the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League.
Scheifele is a tall center that played on a somewhat weak Colts team in 2010-11, but it's easy to say he's the most exciting player they have. He put up 75 points in 66 games with Barrie on the year, and those are numbers that look to improve, and they should translate to the professional level as well.
He's a little on the smallish size and can definitely afford to pack some muscle onto his tall frame, but hey, he has the tall frame, and you can't teach that.
