Nikolaj Ehlers Off To A Great Start For The Winnipeg Jets

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,

Throughout his first five seasons with the Winnipeg Jets, winger Nikolaj Ehlers always showed blazing speed, a strong understanding of the game and flashes of brilliance, but you always had the sense that there was something even more dynamic to come.

So far this season, Ehlers has taken all of his hockey attributes to a new level.

The 24-year-old from Denmark is playing his best hockey through six Jets games so far and it’s not just about his impressive offensive numbers — four goals and three assists.

Ehlers is showing tremendous confidence in handling the puck, in backing down defenders as he makes zone entries at high speed, in trying creative things to make passes, in diving to get his stick on pucks at both ends, in finding a scoring touch.
