Jets player to watch
Bryan Little - Center

Little is off to a great start this season, scoring at nearly a point-per-game pace. Through 26 games, Little leads the Jets with 12 goals, 24 points and his two shorthanded tallies are tied for the league lead. The 12th overall pick in the 2006 draft has points in four of the Jets last five games (1g/5a) and hasn’t gone more than two games without a point.
