Winnipeg Jets Top Prospect Ready to Make a Huge Impact

Published October 30, 2023 at 2:55 PM

The Winnipeg Jets 4-3-1 start to the season has them optimistic about a potential playoff run in 2023-24, and now, one of their top prospects is off to a high-flying start this year too.

A new top prospect


The Winnipeg Jets got some great assets back in the Pierre-Luc Dubois trade, but with the Cole Perfetti promotion to the NHL, they have a new top prospect in the form of Brad Lambert.

The 19-year old made his debut in North America last season, tallying 38 points in 26 games with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL, but when he made the jump to the AHL, he managed just 3 points in his first 14 games.

A red-hot start

The Finland native has turned a corner in 2023-24 however, notching 4 goals and 9 points in his first six games this season, giving the Jets yet another versatile prospect for the future.

Brad Lambert (#GoJetsGo) has officially entered the scene in the AHL:

> 6 Games
> 4 Goals
> 5 Assists
> 9 Points
> 21 SOG
> Leads Manitoba Moose In PTS at 19YO

It's unlikely he makes the NHL in a big role this season, with their forward group possessing plenty of depth, but if he continues this hot start, the Jets may have themselves yet another home grown star to contribute to the future of this team.
