#3: Bryan Little

Bryan Little has emerged as one of the brightest young players in Winnipeg, and his versatility has earned him the respect of Jets head coach Claude Noel, and the Winnipeg faithful. Little can be used in almost any situation, and his playmaking ability is fitting for a top six position. With talent for a natural center posision, and speed and vision for the wing, Little is useful on both the power-play and the penalty-kill. The 25-year old works super hard to improve his game, but because of the Jets’ lack of post-season appearances, Little is still a, well, little-known name. When the Jets finally make the playoffs, or play meaningful late-season games, it will be his time to shine, and he will garner the attention of teams league-wide.
