Chris Thorburn's number 22 is the focus of today's countdown to the Winnipeg Jets season opener. The Jets begin the 2014-2015 campaign in Arizona October 9.

The 31-year-old Thorburn hails from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario and was drafted by Buffalo in 2001.

Last season Thorburn played 55 games for the Jets, scoring 11 points. In 2013-2014, the forward hit a career milestone, playing in his 500th NHL game.

Here are some highlights from Thorburn's season last year.
