Jets’ prospect Scheifele continues wicked scoring pace in OHL playoffs

It seems like almost every time Mark Scheifele touches the puck in the Ontario Hockey League playoffs, the result is a goal.

On Wednesday, Scheifele propelled the Barrie Colts to a 6-4 victory over the London Knights in Game 4 of the OHL final by scoring four times in the third period. He also had an assist in the first period.

The feat comes on the heels of another five-point night he posted Monday in a Game 3 victory over the Knights.

This is good news for fans of the Winnipeg Jets.

A first-round, seventh overall, pick of the Jets in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, is way out in front of the scoring race in the OHL playoffs.

He’s scored 15 goals and has 39 points in 19 games for Barrie this post-season. The Colts are now one win away from winning the OHL title and punching their ticket to the MasterCard Memorial Cup.

The 20-year-old center has spent time with the Jets in each of the last two NHL seasons.

In 11 career NHL games, Scheifele has one goal.

    So over 10% of his points and over 25% of his goals came in one period?

    If he’s hot and cold in a lesser league, my guess is he’ll be cold a lot more in the NHL.

      Take away his two 5 point games and he still has 29 points in 17 games. I don’t see where the cold part of this hot and cold thing is. Maybe hot and on fire, but definitely not hot and cold.

    Jets: don’t rush this kid, let him mature and develop. For the love of god, please don’t mess this up

      The Jets have a far better organization than the one Atlanta had. The Thrashers they may still be on the ice, but there’s thankfully no remnant of them in the office. They will be playoff-bound within the next few years, mark my words, and not just scrambling for 8th.

      I think you’ll find the jets have done an incredible job with him already. No worries there. Can’t wait to see him and Kane on a line together when the time comes!
