NHL Draft: Friday June 28th

by Kristi Hennessy / Winnipeg Jets

Greeting from New Jersey! Our Jets TV crew arrived in Newark, NJ late Thursday afternoon and made our way to the hotel in Jersey City.

Things got started early on Friday morning with a little sneak peak into the war-room with Jets Executive Vice President & General Manager, Kevin Cheveldayoff, Senior Vice President & Director Hockey Operations/Assistant General Manager Craig Heisinger and of course all of the scouting staff. Talk about being a lucky fly on the wall! We got some great footage and photos from the room and were able to steal a few minutes of Chevy's time for a one-on-one exclusive.


We also spoke with Director of Amateur Scouting, Marcel Comeau to hear his thoughts on the draft and how things were going in the meetings.

Later in the afternoon, we headed over to the media and prospect luncheon which was right on the harbor in New Jersey right on the Hudson River with the beautiful Manhattan skyline in the background.

We talked to a few of the top prospects after the lunch about how their experience has been so far and just how surreal this entire process must be for them.

It was a scorching 90+ degrees Fahrenheit outside with an insane percentage of humidity but all in all, it was a fabulous afternoon.
