He didn't make the Winnipeg Jets roster this season, but Mark Scheifele has been putting on a show in the OHL.
CBCSports.ca has been keeping a close eye on the next generation of NHL stars on Canada's seven teams, whether they're with the parent club, back in junior, or working on the "farm" in the AHL.

We'll periodically check in with these players throughout the 2012-13 season, no matter where they're lacing up their skates.

In this edition, we look at the Winnipeg Jets' Mark Scheifele:


Mark Scheifele

Age: 19
Hometown
: Kitchener, Ont.
Position: C
NHL club: Drafted 7th overall by the Winnipeg Jets in 2011
NHL GP:  11
Current team: Barrie Colts (OHL)
Stats on current team:  43GP, 38G, 39A, plus-26, 30 PIM (as of Mar. 12)

He didn't make the Winnipeg Jets roster this season, but Mark Scheifele has been putting on a show in junior:



He scored a hat trick and added a pair of assists in that 6-5 win over the Niagara Ice Dogs, accounting for just five of the nine points he notched (6 goals, 3 assists) in three games, enough to earn OHL's player of the week honours this past Monday.

With Scheifele turning 20 on Friday, that means his time in junior will soon draw to a close.

The question is, when will he suit up again for the Jets? Or are the St. John's Ice Caps the next stop for Scheifele?
