Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Quite shifty along the boards, as he's able to avoid different hits from the opposing team. He already has good size ... although he will need to add some mass to his frame and get stronger. Jakobsson does skate well, and ... he can also put some good pressure on the forecheck. There's some untapped potential with his skill level and size. He’ll need to work on getting stronger physically in order to become more efficient along the boards and in front of the net." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
