The Jets beat a group of Montreal Canadiens rookies 2-1 in Belelville, Ont. as part of the showcase, where Outhouse, 21, garnered an invite as an undrafted rookie following his career with the Western Hockey League’s Victoria Royals.
“It was a really fun game,” Outhouse said. “They were pretty shut down — two or three shots in the third period — I was happy with how they played and gave me a lot of confidence in there.
“I thought I did well controlling rebounds and keeping it simple.”
Outhouse also played the third period of an 8-1 thrashing at the hands of the Ottawa Senators rookies Friday.
