The Winnipeg Jets have released its roster for the Rookie Showcase scheduled to run from September 6-9.

The Jets prospects will head to Belleville, ON. for a four-day rookie tournament with the Eastern Conference's Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators in early September. Although serving as participants in the annual Young Stars Classic in Penticton, BC since returning to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011, the Jets will head east for the first time this coming week.

With a handful of players who have competed in past rookie showcases on the squad, the 2019-20 prospects team will be highlighted by 2017 first round selection Kristian Vesalainen, 2019 first round selection Ville Heinola and Winnipegger Kamerin Nault, who spent the last week of the 2018-19 AHL regular season with the Manitoba Moose, scoring and adding an assist in his one game with the team.
