With their second of three first-round picks, the Jackets drafted winger Kerby Rychel of the Windsor Spitfires.

Rychel gives the Jackets another excellent forward, with offensive ability, physicality and high character. He and Boone Jenner are a match made in heaven as linemates.

The thought of a player with NHL bloodlines in Rychel anchoring a future third line with Jenner is very exciting.
