2014 MJHL Bantam Draft Results: Winnipeg Blues —

The Annual MJHL Bantam Draft took place on Sunday, June 8th in Winkler, and the Winnipeg Blues added some very exciting talent to their organization. 

Round 1 – 7th Overall – The Blues had the 7th overall pick, and snatched up forward Dylan Burton from the Winnipeg Hawks AAA with their first overall pick.  The 5’6″, 135 pound forward put up 25 goals and 43 points in 30 games last season.  The shifty forward brings a combination of skill and speed, has a knack for rolling off checks, and has great vision on the ice.

Round 2 – 14th Overall – saw the Blues draft forward James McIsaac 14th overall from the Winnipeg Warriors AAA.  McIsaac has great size at 5’10”, 145 lbs.  With a will to do anything to win, combined with gifted offensive ability and great skating, McIsaac will be a great addition to the organization.

Round 2 – 18th Overall – Winnipeg picked their first D-man of the draft, selecting 6’1″, 168 lbs Conor Timlic from the Winnipeg Monarchs.  Timlic plays a physical game but combines that with great skating skills.  Timlic sees the ice very well, and is comfortable making quick decisions on the ice.

Round 2 – 20th Overall – Forward Brandon Marques was the Blues fourth overall pick.  The 5’10”, 145 pound Winnipeg product suited up for the Winnipeg Monarchs AAA last season.  Marques brings good skating and hockey sense, and is capable of scoring big goals at big times.

Round 2 – 21st Overall – Noah King of the Winnipeg Monarchs AAA was the Blues 5th pick.  King is a hard working player that is very defensive minded.  A very athletic defenceman at 5’9″, 145 lbs, King has great vision and is a player who can be relied on late in games to protect leads.

Round 3 – 29th Overall – With the Blues 6th pick, Winnipeg chose D-man John Jebmani.  Jebmani never takes a shift off.  The 6’0″, 165 pound Winnipegger has a physical presence that makes him very difficult to play against in the defensive zone.

Round 4 -40th Overall – The Blues chose Jared Pelechaty with their 7th pick.  Pelechaty brings a great work ethic to the ice, sees the ice very well and makes smart decisions with the puck.  Pelechaty improved every game he played in last season with the Winnipeg Warriors, and really stepped up for his team in the playoffs.

Round 4 – 42nd Overall – Forward Marco Mazza was chosen for the Blues 8th pick.  Mazza is a player that prides himself on his two way game and never takes a shift off.  With good skating and hockey skills, Mazza improved every game last season.

Auto Protect– The Blues protected forward Tyler Campbell of the Winnipeg Monarchs AAA.  Campbell is a highly skilled, good skating player with great vision on the ice.  Campbell has great touch around the net, but combines that with great playmaking abilities for his teammates.

Auto Protect – The Blues also protected defenceman Dylan Cassie of the Winnipeg Monarchs AAA.  The 5’10”, 160 pound smooth skater from Winnipeg sees the ice very well, is very reliable in his own zone, but isn’t afraid to jump into the rush when the time is right.
