Winnipeg Jets 2019 first round pick Ville Heinola is voicing his frustration that he is not in the NHL. Heinola is currently skating for Winnipeg's farm team the Manitoba Moose. Heinola has skated in twenty five career games for the Jets and recorded one goal and nine assists. Although he has not requested a trade, his agent stated that he should at least be in the NHL by now. Heinola has been successful in every league he's played in. The finish defenseman had a three respectable World Junior appearances. He's played well at the American Hockey League as well.


The problem with Heinola's request is that Winnipeg has plenty of defenseman already patrolling the blueline. It's a long season and players get hurt a lot. As the season progresses, Heinola might be wise to seize an opportunity when a defenseman gets injured once he's recalled. It sounds like he is starting to running out of patience. As a former first round pick, Winnipeg could get value back if they decided to trade him and they don't plan on putting him in the lineup.
There is usually always teams in the market for a defenseman. Does Winnipeg really want to give up on their first round pick though? Good, young, and inexpensive defenseman are a true asset for any NHL club. Stayed to tuned to see how this situation plays itself out.
