Michigan State hockey alumnus Mason Appleton is making his presence felt in this year’s NHL playoffs. The Winnipeg Jets finished a sweep of the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night, and Appleton played a key role in most of the series, averaging just over 19 minutes of ice time.

Late in the first period of Monday night’s game, Appleton made a great play with his stick, deflecting a shot from the point into the back of the net to restore the Winnipeg lead.
