Playing careerEdit

Roslovic played minor ice hockey with the Easton Youth Hockey Association (EYHA) Ice Dragons and the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets.[2] He participated in the 2010 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with the AAA Blue Jackets.[3] Roslovic played the 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL) as a member of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (U.S. NTDP). Roslovic's outstanding play was rewarded when he was invited to skate in the 2014 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.[2] He played 25 games for Team USA in the 2014–15 USHL season, accumulating 11 goals and 38 points. Roslovic committed to play the 2015–16 season with Miami University.[4]

On July 18, 2016, Roslovic signalled the end of his collegiate career in agreeing to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Winnipeg Jets.[5]

On April 6, 2017, Roslovic made his NHL debut at his home town of Columbus against the Columbus Blue Jackets.[6] After one game he was reassigned to the Jets AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. Roslovic ended the 2016–17 season leading the Moose in scoring with 48 points in 65 games.[6]

Roslovic was again called up to the NHL on January 19, 2018,[7] and he scored his first NHL goal and point on January 25, 2018, against the Anaheim Ducks.[8]

Roslovic began the 2018–19 season with the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL.[9] He scored his first career hat-trick in a 9–3 win over the Anaheim Ducks on February 2, 2019. All of his goals came on the powerplay.[10] This allowed Roslovic to be named the NHL's first star of the week ending February 4, 2019.
