Surprise! The Winnipeg Jets Are Now Leading the NHL

The best team in Canada. The lack of attention for the Winnipeg Jets, despite being arguably the dominant force in terms of hockey at the moment. The team is the NHL’s best with 56 points and a league-leading .718 percentage. Connor Hellebuyck is at the center of the debate, having recently signed a seven-year, $8.5 million-per-year deal with the Jets. The team’s backup goalie, Laurent Brossoit, has also been remarkably consistent when filling in. Meanwhile, the Jets have a depth of talented forwards including Mark Scheifele, Nikolaj Ehlers, and Kyle Connor as well as rookies like Cole Perfetti and Pierre-Luc Dubois. The defensive pair Josh Morrissey and Nate Schmidt also ensure strong offensive play.
