Co-leading scorer leaving Miami after signing with Winnipeg

Jack Roslovic will not be back for his sophomore season as a member of the Miami RedHawks hockey team.

The school announced Roslovic has signed an entry-level contract with the Winnipeg Jets, the team that chose him in the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

“I want to thank Miami for everything they’ve done for me,” Roslovic said in a statement. “They helped me develop on and off the ice this past season. The school did a great job maturing me, (strength & conditioning coach Justin Roethlingshoefer) did a great deal for me off the ice in the weight room and the coaching staff was great and helped me on the ice. There is a great group of players at Miami and I wouldn’t trade my year here for anything.”

Roslovic made the National Collegiate Hockey Conference All-Rookie Team after tying for the team lead with 26 points last season. The Columbus native scored 10 goals, including a team-high six on the power play.

“I wish him all the best as he moves on in pro hockey,” Miami coach Enrico Blasi said in a statement.

Where Roslovic plays next season remains to be seen. He could end up in the NHL with the Jets, one of their minor league affiliates or with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.
