Six-point night for Jets prospect Scheifele
Winnipeg Jets prospect Mark Scheifele had six points in the Barrie Colts' 7-3 win against the Ottawa 67's in the Ontario Hockey League on Thursday.

Winnipeg Jets prospect Mark Scheifele had six points in the Barrie Colts' 7-3 win against the Ottawa 67's in the Ontario Hockey League on Thursday.

Scheifele scored a hat trick and had three assists in the home win. All three goals and two of the assists came on the power play.

Scheifele told the Barrie Examiner after the game that he couldn't remember the last time he had that kind of scoring outburst.

"Not for a very long time," he said. "Maybe I haven't ever. It was a fun night tonight and I'm glad we got the win."

The 19-year-old leads the OHL with 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) in 11 games.

The seventh pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, Scheifele had one goal in in seven games with the Jets last season, as well as 63 points in 47 games for Barrie. He also had six points in six games to help Canada win a bronze medal at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
