Leduc was one of top offensive defenders this year and produced for Rouyn-Noranda all year, in one zone at least. His skating is good; the stride is powerful and smooth and gets him up the ice well. He is the starting point of offense, carrying the puck up the ice and leading the rush. Jerome likes to pinch when in the offensive zone. Makes strong passes to his teammates and distributes well on the powerplay, as well as having a great shot that beat QMJHL goalies with frequency. His all-around game needs some serious help if he wants to advance at all in his hockey career, he makes some bad defensive decisions, his overall positioning and how he handles attacking forwards is a mess at times and he needs major refinements in that area. He has trouble handling physical forwards and is really just a one-dimensional player right now.
