Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "It's very impressive for a true freshman to go in and have the year he did. Any faults that Boston University team had, they certainly didn't come from Jake." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Plays his position well, but deep at times. Usually out top of the blue paint on the rush, but tends to play back during offensive-zone pressure. Needs to reach a higher level of consistency. Has a chance to become a No. 1 NHL goalie but needs to be more consistent." (Phil Myre, ISS Scout)

• "He looks like the real deal. I didn’t think that last year, but he’s really developed this season. Not a great athlete, but he’s huge, very smart, calm and efficient. His mental game and technical game are big time. What’s nice about him is there’s no bust factor. He will be a good depth goalie at worst." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "He’s going to play in the NHL. I won’t say he’s a lock to be a starter, but I feel confident that we will see him in the NHL." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Quiet in his crease and recovers well for second shots. Tracks the puck well and is fluid in his crease movements. Shows good balance in his stance and gets good push off either skate moving laterally." (Red Line Report)
