Nikolaj Ehlers had three assists in the Winnipeg Jets season opener on Thursday night. Ehlers skated with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler on the Jets top line. Along with his 3 assists, Ehlers added 8 SOG and a +2 rating in 18:14 of ice time.
While it's nice to see Ehlers add three assists last night, it is even more encouraging to see him put 8 shots on goal. If he can stay up on the top line with Scheifele and Wheeler while continuing to have a shooters mentality, we could be looking at a massive breakout season for Nikolaj Ehlers.
