Because of his size, he wont have the benefit of doubt if he does not produce. Sometimes you can look past #'s and producing when your 6'2", and can skate like the wind!!! but if your 5'7", you better be putting that puck in the net, and have drive. (example MaCausland - scorer in midget AAA. He dominated his year midget AAA)
Jacob has been the best kid his age for a number of years and scores every where he goes despite his size. Jacob played in the Atlantics and Nationals with Moncton didn't he? If i remember correctly he scored a few points in both tournaments too. He is definitely small but doesn't seem to shy away from the rough stuff either. He might be a bit timid now after having surgery. Interesting to see how Luc Duschene will do finally playing against kids his own age. I really don't think he is going to turn out like everyone is expecting.
