Kevin Cheveldayoff always plays his cards very close to his chest - never blinking, always having that sly poker face on whenever presented with questions about who will be dawning a Jets jersey.
In his third NHL draft, Cheveldayoff did it again - surprise us that is - with a collection of draft picks that will be the strongest crop of young talent in the Jets organization yet.
Rated as the best Canadian team at the draft by the National Post with a rating of A+, the Jets also had praise for many of the picks that will be included in this breakdown.
Here is how the Jets won the 2013 NHL Entry Draft:
13th Overall: Josh Morrisey (Defenseman - Prince Albert Raiders)
A left handed shooting defensemen out of Calgary, Alberta, the third year Prince Albert Raider blueliner finished the 2012-13 campaign with a career high 47 points.
It was his third season in the WHL, but his second full season with the Raiders. Morrisey saw his point production increase from 38 points (10 goals, 28 assists) in 2011-12 to 47 points (15 goals, 32 assists) in 2012-13.
Though the Raiders were bounced out of the playoffs in the first round by the Red Deer Rebels in four straight, Morrisey did lead all Raider defensemen in scoring and finished the season 12th among defensemen in scoring behind the likes of Seth Jones, Morgan Reilly, and fellow draft mate Brendon Kitchon (who led the WHL among defensemen in scoring).
To make this pick seem even better, Morrisey was on Canada's U18 World Junior team in 2012-13 and led the tournament in scoring among defensemen with three goals and seven assists along with the best plus/minus (+10) as Canada captured the Gold Medal.
He also has a Gold Medal from the Ivan Hlinka tournament and took part in the CHL's Prospects Game.
According to the National Post, Morrisey is "a coach's dream", has "an excellent overall game", and is very under-rated.
A left handed shot, Morrisey could add to the already deep blueline of the Jets where the likes of Dustin Byfuglien, Zach Bogosian, and Jacob Trouba all shoot right. Morrissey compliments those active defensemen well and could be seen taking another year or two to develop, but could be seen paired with the Jets 2012 pick as a two-way defensive pair in Winnipeg in the future.
43rd Overall: Nic Petan (Centre - Portland Winterhawks)
It's not very often a team can nab the WHL's top scorer in the second round, but that is just how far Nic Petan dropped in the draft.
In his second full season as the top centre with the Portland Winterhawks, Petan notched 120 points (46 goals, 74 assists), sharing the league lead in scoring with Manitoban and teammate Brandon Leipsic. He also added 28 points in 21 playoff games as the Winterhawks stormed to the Memorial Cup.
Then again, it's not that hard to see how Petan scores so much. In 2009-10 he scored 139 points in 57 games in his last season of Bantam in Vancouver.
A playmaker with some offensive flair, Petan saw his point totals increase exponentially after a 35 point season in 2011-12. But Petan is only the first steal of the draft for the Jets.
Petan won gold at the Ivan Hlinka tournament in 2012-13 with Canada. The Jets did go a bit off their usual path of drafting bigger players by drafting the 5'9 Petan, but many would bring up the Martin St. Louis argument again and tell of how it doesn't matter if you're big or small - just put the puck in the net alot.
59th Overall: Eric Comrie (Goalie - Tri-City Americans)
Yet another WHL pick, the Jets stole yet another blooming young prospect in the second round (thanks to Johnny Oduya). This time it was Tri-City American goalie Eric Comrie.
Comrie is the latest goalie in a line of long successful netminders to play in Tri-City and get drafted into the NHL. Just look at previous Tri-City goalies such as Carey Price, Brian Boucher, and Olaf Kolzig to name a few.
In his second full season in the Tri-City net, Comrie was 20-14-3 with a 2.62 goals against average and a .915 save percentage. Though Tri-City bowed out in the first round, Comrie remained a very solid pick for any team that drafted him.
Comrie was also on the 2012-13 Ivan Hlinka Canadian team that won gold. He along with fellow Jet picks Josh Morrissey and Nic Petan.
The only goalie the Jets drafted, the Newport Beach product adds to the depth the Jets have in goal with the likes of Connor Hellebuyck, Jason Kasdorf, and Jamie Phillips.
84th Overall: Jimmy Lodge (Centre - Saginaw Spirit)
The first Jets pick out of the OHL, Jimmy Lodge was a decent pick.
According to the National Post, Jimmy Lodge was the best value of the day by saying he is "only scratching the surface of how good he can become with a great second half in the OHL."
With 67 points in 64 games in his second full season in Saginaw, Lodge seems to be finding his game as he looks towards his third season in the OHL.
Lodge finished a distant third in team scoring behind teammate Eric Locke (97 points - drafted seventh round 2013 by Buffalo) and Garret Ross (90 points - drafted fifth round 2012 by Chicago).
The interesting thing is the Lodge did go before Locke, but only because of size differential. Lodge is listed at 6'1, 166 while Locke is 5'8, 182.
It seems the Jets look at Lodge as a longer term project for development and will wait eagerly to see his results in his third season in Saginaw.
91st Overall: JC Lipon (Right Wing - Kamloops Blazers)
Considered the biggest steal of the draft by the Jets, JC Lipon may ring a bell with many Jets fans for being a part of the Canadian World Junior team last Christmas.
To see a player on that team dip to the third round was not necessarily surprising as Lipon was expecting to be taken in the third or fourth rounds.
Drafted as a 19 year old and having already played four full seasons in Kamloops, Lipon may be ready to jump to the AHL's St. John's Ice Caps this coming season to turn pro.
Lipon did finish the 2012-13 season with 89 points (36 goals, 53 assists) in 61 games alongside 115 penalty minutes.
At 6'0, 180, Lipon is a crasher and banger up front and could be in the mold of a Brad Marchand if he continues both his scoring and enforcing prowess.
A great pick late in the third round, the Jets should be very happy with him.
104th Overall: Andrew Copp (Centre - Univeristy of Michigan)
At 6'0, 180 the Jets selected Andrew Copp as their third pick up the middle as they try to bulk up their prospects down the middle.
Copp completed his first full season as a U of Michigan Wolverine scoring 21 points (11 goals, 10 assists) in 38 games alongside fellow draft pick Jacob Trouba.
The Ann Arbor, Michigan product spent the last two seasons before as part of the US National Development Team scoring 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) in 40 games.
114th Overall: Jan Kostalek (Defenseman - Rimouski Oceanic)
Another defensive pick (one of five and one of the last four picks), Jan Kostalek is another solid pick.
A Czech Republic product, Kostalek just completed his first full season playing in the QMJHL (the Jets first pick from the Q) scoring 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 48 games.
At only 18, Kostalek has time to develop and improve in Rimouski and the Jets are hoping for more of a defensive defensemen with their fourth rounder.
127th Overall: Tucker Poolman (Defenseman - University of North Dakota)
After finishing a season with the USHL's Omaha Lancers in which he scored 28 points in 64 games, the Jets fifth round pick Tucker Poolman is taking his talents to the great hockey program at UND.
And it makes sense for the East Grand Forks native, who has played most of his hockey only an hour and a half south of Winnipeg.
Poolman will look to develop in the next few seasons at UND.
190th Overall: Brenden Kichton (Defenseman - Spokane Chiefs)
A former fifth round pick of the New York Islanders, Brenden Kichton was not able to reach an agreement with his former club in 2011 and re-entered the draft in 2013 and was picked up by the Jets in the seventh round.
It may not be as big of a steal considering this is Kichton's second draft, but it should be well noted Kichton led the WHL in scoring among defensemen with 85 points this past year (22 goals, 63 assists) and has eclipsed the 70 point mark as a defenseman the past three season in Spokane.
But now his junior career in coming to an end as he hit his 21st birthday on June 18th. For Kichton, if the Jets sign him (which I have no doubt they will), he will be able to play in the AHL with the St. John Ice Caps and develop further in the minors.
A left handed shot, Kichton is listed at 6'0, 190 and can be a setup force at the back end. A good transition, first pass defenseman, Kichton was also a +141 in his five seasons in Spokane. He led the Chiefs in scoring in 2011-12 and 2012-13 and had an additional seven points in nine playoff games this past season as the Chiefs bowed out in the second round to the eventual WHL champion Portland Winterhawks in four games.
In 333 games as a Chief, Kichton had 67 goals and 201 assists for 268 points.
194th Overall: Marcus Karlstrom (AIK J20 - Swedish Elite League SuperElit)
A bit of an unknown for the Jets last pick in the draft, Marcus Karlstrom has spent his time developing in Sweden.
As the Jets only Swedish selection in the past three years, Karlstrom has slowly been developing into a good defensemen, scoring 32 points in 22 games with the AIK J18 team in the J18 Elit League in Sweden.
He also spent time on the J20 team in the SuperElit league as an 18 year old and had one goal in five games.
In 45 games with the AIK J18 team, Karlstrom has scored 11 goals and added 29 assists with a strong +55 rating.
