|New York Rangers|

May 2013 – Jean started his pro career on a strong note with 13 points in his first 14 games with Connecticut of the AHL. He then hit a wall and finished the campaign with just 10 points in his final 59 contests. As a power forward he still has time to take the next step and become a late bloomer but his pro numbers show that he is nowhere near being NHL ready at this point. Eric Daoust
October 2012 – Jean was a free agent that fore went his final two NCAA seasons at Lake Superior State (CCHA) to sign with the Rangers this past summer. He is a big, underrated, power forward coming out of the junior league of the NAHL that went undrafted who impressed during New York’s prospects camp to earn an early contract. He is a hard-hitting center that utilizes his size well to protect the puck and comes with an accurate and powerful shot.
Fantasy Outlook: C-
Jean has shown a smooth transition early in the season to the AHL from the college ranks, but in this organization he'll need to wait a couple of years for a legit shot.
