Mark Jankowski, Pittsburgh Penguins
This month’s player spotlight is on Hamilton, Ontario native, Mark Jankowski. In 2012, Mark was selected 21st overall by the Calgary Flames, the highest selected Canadian high school player in NHL draft history. Later that year, Mark joined to the Providence Friars, becoming one of the youngest players in the NCAA that season. At the completion of his NCAA eligibility, Mark made his NHL debut in 2016 with the Flames, going on to play over 200 games with the franchise. Now in his fifth professional season, Mark and his new teammates in Pittsburgh look to emerge in the ultra-competitive East Division.
