From: Hockey's Future
DU player Jesse Martin was listed as one of the Atlanta Thrashers Top 20 Prospects by Hockey's Future this week.
Jesse Martin was selected 7th round, 195th overall, in the 2006 NHL Draft.
As a freshman at Denver, Martin carved out a niche for himself quickly, playing on the second line and getting good ice time. The 5'11, 118-pounder posted 15 points in 41 games.
Martin was invited to attend Thrashers prospect camp the last two years, but Denver told him there was no point in going unless he'd make the team. Instead, they told him to stay in Denver and work out with his teammates at DU. That's what he did, keeping his full attention devoted to college hockey right now.
Martin needs to work on skating and projects as a checker. He’ll remain at Denver for the foreseeable future. Martin turns 20 next week.
