Scheifele has four goals and four assists to show for his efforts after 12 games this season. Scheifele exceeded all expectations last year when he finished the season with 49 points, and so far in the 2015-16 campaign he is on pace for 54 points. He has scored in eight of 12 games this year and has won an impressive 44 percent of his face offs while centering Mathieu Perreault and Nikolaj Ehlers on the consistent second-line.
Scheifele opened the scoring for the Jets in Thursday's 6-2 Opening Night victory against the Bruins. A popular breakout candidate after he improved from 34 points two years ago to 49 last year, Scheifele got the season started right -- with Winnipeg trailing 1-0 in the second period, he fired a beautiful wrist shot from the high slot past Tuukka Rask to tie the game and wake up the offense. Surprisingly, though, Scheifele played only 13:42 in the game -- that's third-line ice time. Expect Scheifele to see more minute than that moving forward, as it's hard to imagine the Jets using him so lightly.
