Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His best asset (in 2016-17) was his ability to scan the ice and find open teammates. In the transition game, he excelled. ... He has quick feet and an above-average stride. ... Jacob did not show any signs of high-end offensive instincts or creativity. His defensive game was committed, although he does tend to play physical. He projects into a reliable, puck-moving defenseman role and not necessarily a point-producing, offensive defenseman." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
