One of the Winnipeg Jets' top prospects Colby Barlow received a major promotion, as he officially starts his professional hockey career.

Barlow, drafted 18th overall by the Jets in 2023, was just eliminated from the OHL playoffs. His team, the Owen Sound Attack, got swept in the first round by the Saginaw Spirit.
The Jets' organization announced that he will join the Manitoba Moose in the AHL.
Here's their official statement:
"WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets announced today they have reassigned forward Colby Barlow from the OHL's Owen Sound Attack to the Manitoba Moose.

Barlow, 19, posted 58 points (40G, 18A) in 50 games this season for Owen Sound. The Attack captain also added three points (1G, 2A) in four postseason contests. Barlow has recorded 184 points (116G, 68A) in 168 career OHL contests. The Orillia, Ont. native was selected to the OHL First All-Star Team in 2022-23 and awarded both the OHL and CHL Scholastic Player of the Year. Previously the winger was named to the OHL First All-Rookie Team in 2021-22. Internationally, Barlow helped Canada win gold at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup and bronze at the U18 World Championship.

Barlow was Winnipeg's first-round pick (18th overall) in the 2023 NHL Draft."

Barlow had a great impact with his OHL team, and it looks like he could bring the same energy with any team, whether it's in the AHL or the NHL.
More to come.
