Will be interesting to see how he does in midget AAA. He did play some games in high school this year, but, was not dominating to say the least. For someone who would be a "high" pick in the Q, they should be more then holding their own at the high school level at 14. Not taking anything away from him, but, he will need to show he can play and produce against bigger and older players if he is to be a high pick.
I agree with you about Jacob's abilities and yes he does lack in height (guessing he'd be 5'7 ish?) but he is deceptively strong. I am forming my opinion based on watching him play a handful of times. I think he'll more than hold his own in Midget AAA with the Flyers...superstar in his first year...I'd guess no....but a solid,regular contributor...I'd say yes. Maybe that knocks him down in the draft, but i don't think he falls too far. Just my opinion.
