Jets' Kyle Connor: Collects pair of helpers

Connor registered two assists, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canadiens in Game 4. Connor had a hand in both of Logan Stanley's second-period tallies Monday. The 24-year-old Connor did his part fairly well in the postseason with seven points and 28 shots on net through eight contests. The winger will make for a solid early-to-mid round pick in fantasy drafts in the fall after he scored 26 goals and added 24 assists in 56 regular-season games this year.

Unfortunately for the 24-year-old, the goal didn't amount to a comeback as the team allowed an empty-netter just moments later and lost Game 1. Connor also provided four shots and one hit in 23:09 of ice time.

Jets' Kyle Connor: Two points on empty-netters

Connor scored a goal on three shots and added an assist, both on empty-net tallies, in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers in Game 1. Connor struck at 18:13 of the third period for an insurance tally, then set up Blake Wheeler only 32 seconds later. The 24-year-old Connor ended the regular season with 26 goals and 50 points in 56 contests. He's likely to stick in a top-line role, and he'll be effective both as a scorer and a playmaker.

Jets' Kyle Connor: Buries pair of goals

Connor scored twice in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs. Connor has four goals and two assists in his last three games after snapping a seven-game drought. The 24-year-old winger ended the regular season with 26 tallies, 50 points, 166 shots on net and a minus-4 rating in 56 contests.

Seven former Michigan players have a shot at the Stanley Cup this year. The NHL playoffs begin Saturday with the usual 16 teams making the field, albeit with a slightly different format this year. The top four teams in all four divisions made the postseason, with the No.1 seeds playing the No. 4 seeds and the No. 2s facing the No. 3s. However, there are no conferences this year, so semifinal matchups will be decided based on regular season point totals.
