Ex-Jet Oleksy to make NHL debut Tuesday

Former Metro Jets' defenseman Steven Oleksy, who played in Waterford during the 2004-05 season, will become the first player from the Jets' organization to play in an NHL game when he suits up Tuesday night for the Washington Capitals against the Boston Bruins.

Oleksy has toiled in the American Hockey League, ECHL and now-defunct International Hockey League (above with Port Huron Icehawks) for the past four years after skating in the NAHL for the Traverse City North Stars and at NCAA Division I Lake Superior State University.
