JANESVILLE, WI – The Jets rounded our their 30-man protected list Tuesday afternoon with four selections made in the 2018 NAHL Draft, one pick in each of the opening rounds.
G COLE BRADY (Rd 1, 20th overall)
Janesville tabbed Canadian goaltender Cole Brady 20th overall, opening the day. Brady played 26 games for the OJHL Markham Royals last season, posting a .904 save percentage in his first season of junior hockey. The 2001-born netminder stands 6’3″ and already holds an NCAA Division I commitment to Arizona State. In 2017, Brady was drafted in the 8th rounds of both the USHL Futures Draft (#114 to the Fargo Force) and the OHL Priority Selection (#142 to the Guelph Storm).
F COLE EDGERTON (Rd 2, 44th overall)
Next, the Jets picked Cole Edgerton, a ’99 forward from the North Jersey Avalanche. Edgerton (5-10/154) played two seasons of U18 hockey for the Avalanche, a program whose alumni include defenseman Brett Pesce (Carolina Hurricanes, NHL) and 50+ players in NCAA Division I hockey. Last season, Edgerton skated in 47 total games between the T1EHL and AYHL schedules, registering 23 total goals and 46 total points and winning a championship in both the T1EHL and AYHL. Edgerton was previously drafted in 2017 by the Amarillo Bulls (#213 overall) and in 2016 by the Johnstown Tomahawks (#349 overall).
D STANISLAV DOSEK (Rd 3, 69th overall)
In the third round, the Jets reached across the Atlantic for Stanislav Dosek, a skilled ’99 defenseman from Czech Republic. Dosek (6-1/176) is a veteran of the České Budějovice program, playing the 2017-18 campaign with its U20 team. In 42 games, Dosek scored nine goals and added 14 assists for 23 points, while racking up a career-high 81 penalty minutes and skating to a +10 rating.
F CARTER HOTTMANN (Rd 4, 92nd overall)
The Jets rounded out the day with another forward, this one with a local flavor. Carter Hottmann — not to be confused with Kip Hoffmann — is a 2000 forward from the Madison area with 83 career goals in 92 games for Madison Edgewood Prep. Hottmann (5-10/170) also played in 21 games for Team Wisconsin this season, tallying four goals and six points.
Now, the Jets’ coaching and scouting staffs will prepare for next month’s Main Camp, held in Janesville July 5 through July 9. From there, a training camp roster will be picked, and the Jets’ 10th anniversary season will be underway.
