The Winnipeg Jets announced today they have selected goaltender Logan Neaton in the fifth round, 144th overall, in the 2019 NHL Draft.

Neaton, 20, is coming off a standout season in which he led the Prince George Spruce Kings to the BCHL title. In 47 regular season games with the Spruce Kings, he went 32-8-5 with a 1.92 goals-against average and .914 save percentage. He was even better in the playoffs, going 16-1 with a 1.46 GAA and .940 SV%.
