History

2009-10: Andrew Copp played for the Compuware U16 team in Michigan. In 38 games he scored 12 goals with 15 assists and 12 penalty minutes. Copp also played quarterback for his high school football team.

2010-11: Copp, an Ann Arbor native, joined USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program after playing 17 games for the Compuware U18 team. He scored 2 goals with 7 assists and had 6 penalty minutes for Compuware. He scored 1 goal in six games for the NTDP’s U18 team and had 1 goal with 4 assists and 4 penalty minutes in 25 U17 games. Copp was the only NTDP player to play another sport – playing quarterback for the Skyline High School football team in its initial varsity season.

2011-12: Copp returned to the US NDTP program for his second season. After missing time early in the season after breaking his collar in his final football game, he skated with the NTDP U17 and U18 teams and won a gold medal skating for the USA at the 2012 U18 World Junior Championship. In 23 games for the NTDP U18 team he scored 1 goal with 5 assist and had 2 penalty minutes. He scored 5 goals with 6 assists in nine games with the NTDP U17 squad. Copp had 1 assist in six games at the U18 WJC. The USA defeated Sweden in the gold medal game. Copp accepted a scholarship in May to play college hockey at Michigan in 2012-13.

2012-13: Copp played in 38 games for Michigan in his freshman season. After seeing limited action and posting just one point in the Wolverines’ first 14 games (scoring a goal in his first college game), he finished the season with 11 goals and 10 assists. Michigan struggled in the final season of the CCHA, finishing in seventh place. In his second year of draft eligibility, Copp was ranked 142nd amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings and was selected by Winnipeg in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.

After re-locating from Atlanta to Winnipeg prior to the 2010-11 and hiring a general manager with roots in western Canada, it is not surprising that the Winnipeg Jets have focused much more of their energy on procuring talent from both the WHL and those players in western Canada and Minnesota bound for college hockey careers.

The Winnipeg Jets had an exciting third season, playing in the Western Conference for the first time since re-locating from Atlanta. The Jets, however, once again finished just short of a playoff spot. Paul Maurice, who took over as the Jets’ coach in January, seemed to have the team playing better at the end of the year and with a full offseason and training camp should be able to put his mark on the club.

The Winnipeg Jets concluded their third season since relocation in the same place as the first two; out of the playoffs and seeking to answer organizational questions regarding what it will take to get them out of the middle of the pack and bring playoff hockey to Winnipeg for the first time since 1995.

The Jets’ prospect pool underwent a turnover when top prospects Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba graduated, removing some of the blue-chip talent from the current crop. The cupboard is far from bare, however, as the next wave of Winnipeg Jets prospects thrived in their current locations, highlighting the overall depth of the system.
