NHL Executive Delivers a Massive Public Critique on Kyle Connor

In a recent poll, an NHL executive made a massive public critique of the Winnipeg Jets' star Kyle Connor, massively disrespecting the year he is having.

Executive Makes Massive Critique on Jets' Kyle Connor in Recent Poll

Kyle Connor is quietly having himself an incredible year, despite the lack of media attention on him. It's likely that he is going under the radar due to his past injury, but in just 38 games he has managed to have some great numbers. Connor has 20 goals and 17 assists for 37 points, just shy of a point per game.

However, an anonymous NHL executive just made this critique of Connor in a recent poll.

«A couple players could move up or down a couple spots for me, but the only real crime there is having Kyle Connor in (the top 10) while players like Brady Tkachuk and Jake Guentzel are out,» the unnamed panelist said, per ESPN's Greg Wyshynski. «For me, he's not even the top winger on Winnipeg.»

That, really unnecessary comment, is a harsh critique of what could be a point-per-game player in Connor.

Connor Key Part of Jets Success This Season

The Winnipeg Jets have found themselves this year, and are emerging as a frontrunner for a long post-season. Connor is a crucial part of the puzzle, as he provides the offence on a defensive-minded team.

If the Jets do want to be a contender this year, they will need to find a way to stay hot through the stretch and into the postseason.
