Mason Appleton, C

Shoots: R                            

Height: 6-2

Weight: 201

Born: 1996-01-15

Hometown: Green Bay, WI, USA

Drafted: 6th round 2015 168th overall

Observations:

August 2017 – Appleton is a smooth-skating center that can play in all situations – including the power play and penalty kill – and has played all three forward positions over the past two years at Michigan State. As a sophomore last season, he led the Spartans in scoring with 12 goals and 31 assists in 35 games. That was enough for the Jets organization as they signed Appleton to a three-year entry level contract this summer and he will debut in the AHL this fall with the Manitoba Moose. The 21-year-old possesses great vision when quarterbacking the power play and should find himself contributing on the man advantage with the Moose this season. Jamie Zadow

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

Plays with a fast pace and has great vision on the ice to find his teammates with a crisp pass. A bit of a late bloomer, but will get his first taste of pro hockey this year and could make an impact soon enough at the NHL level.
