It’s opening night in the 2017-18 NHL season and the game to kick it all off will feature an all-Canadian matchup as the Maple Leafs visit Winnipeg to take on the Jets.
Sophomores Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine go head to head in what is sure to be an exciting game.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs surprised a lot of people a season ago, showing that perhaps they’re a year ahead of the projected curve.
A young roster that is loaded with talent up front will need to avoid sophomore slumps from a group of players that carried the team in their first NHL seasons.
Wave after wave of offensive firepower is going to be the recipe for success for this team as the blueline is still a question mark, and goaltender Frederik Andersen will need to put together another solid campaign for the Leafs to make another push for the playoffs.
The Jets in many ways can be seen as the Leafs of the West. There’s a lot of young talent in this group with the likes of Patrik Laine, Nikolaj Ehlers, and Mark Scheifele.
While their blueline may be a bit more proven than Toronto’s, goaltending remains a weak spot.
Winnipeg will call on Connor Hellbuyck for the home opener, but with newly acquired goalie Steve Mason riding shotgun, the feeling is that both goalies will be battling for the number one spot all season long.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Toronto are 7-21 in their last 28 Wednesday games

Free Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Prediction:
The Leafs have some questions on defence, and the Jets have some glaring issues in goal. With the firepower possessed by both teams I don’t see this one being a low-scoring affair. Go with the over.
