about Devin Setoguchi
Position: C/RW Shoots: Right
DOB: J Born: Taber, AB
Height: 6′ Weight: 200
Selected by: San Jose Sharks Round: 1 Overall: #8 When: 2005 NHL Entry Draft
The Winnipeg Jets have acquired forward Devin Setoguchi from the Minnesota Wild for a 2014 second round draft pick.
Setoguchi is a 26 year old right winger that the Jets have been looking for to fill the void on the second line. He appeared in all 48 games this past season with the Minnesota Wild. He finished a very respectable 4th in team scoring.
Devin Setoguchi was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the first round, eighth overall, in the 2005 NHL Draft.
Games: 48 Goals: 13 Assists: 14 Points: 27 PIM: 20 Plus/Minus: +5
Games: 384 Goals: 116 Assists: 106 Points: 222 PIM: 137 Plus/Minus: +9
Setoguchi has one year left on a 3 million dollar deal and will be an “Unrestricted Free Agent” in July of 2014.
The Taber, AB native would be an obvious choice to play right wing on the Kane line with Ollie Jokinen/Alex Burmistrov or maybe even Mark Scheifele at center. With the Jets finally having a normal off-season with a full training camp, I’m sure Coach Noel will have time to experiment with his line combos.
