Observations:

September 2017 - Roslovic seems like a sure bet to return to the team’s AHL affiliate following the preseason. There, he should find some familiarity, as he led the Moose with 48 points in 65 games last season. Roslovic projects as a top-six center and will continue working on his skills in the AHL until the big club comes calling. - Jamie Zadow

May 2017 – After Roslovic turned pro after the 2015-16 season he never looked back! The young forward managed to get into his first NHL game this past season, but it was his strong rookie pro season with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose, which should have Jets fans excited. The young American has gotten stronger to handle the pro game as it has shown as he added a little grit to his strong IQ and high paced game. This past season he played in 65 games with the Moose and notched 13 tallies and 35 assists for 48 points to lead the team in scoring. Roslovic may need another season or two in the AHL, if for nothing more than to give the Jets a chance to clear some roster space for him to get a regular shift. – David Dickenson

January 2017 – Roslovic made the big leap this season to the pro game, joining the Jets AHL-affiliate Manitoba Moose instead of playing in the Ontario Hockey League. He hasn’t looked out of place as a pro thus far scoring eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points in 28 games and earning himself a spot on the American’s World Junior Hockey Championship roster where he helped the team to a gold medal. The bullish forward didn’t set the tournament on fire, only scoring two points in seven tournament games, but was one of the key forwards on his team’s roster. David Dickenson

October 2016 – Roslovic was among the cuts at Jets' camp, and the big news was Winnipeg sent the young prospect to their AHL affiliate the Manitoba Moose instead of the London Knights of the OHL, who had recently obtained his rights. – David Dickenson

September 2016 – The Columbus Ohio native has continued to develop his game and looks like a great all-round player in the NHL as he continues to develop. He plays a two-way game, but still has a knack for the net, but will need to continue to work hard as he starts transitioning to the pro game. He could end up playing for a very good London Knights team this fall, but also could end up cracking the Manitoba Moose given he came from the NCAA and looks physically ready to compete. David Dickenson

June 2015 – With their second 1st round pick of the 2015 NHL Draft, Winnipeg selected intelligent two-way forward Jack Roslovic 25th overall. Brendan Ross

June 2015Roslovic is one of many USDP players with a lot of upside. He was one of the few players that posted strong numbers who didn’t spent much time with 2016 top prospect Auston Matthews at even strength in the USDP. Roslovic played the point on the powerplay for the USDP and for the USA Undaer-18 team where he was named a top three player on team by the coaching staff after posting six goals and five assists in seven games. In the USHL, Roslovic experienced the biggest jump this past year going from a minus-21 in 34 games last year to a plus-19 rating in 25 in 2013-14, adding seven goals and 17 assists. Roslovic has committed to Miami of Ohio in the NCAA and will likely be a go-to scoring forward as he is capable of playing both centre and right wing. Roslovic builds his game on IQ, puck handling ability and playing at a high pace however adding strength to an average frame will go along way. Benjamin Gallant

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Already putting up numbers in his first pro-season, he’s only going to get better as he gets stronger and continues to play more of a physical game. Could be a great fantasy pickup long-term, like Joe Pavelski who puts up stats in a wide variety of categories.
