Not bad for a 17 year old who still need some time adjusting to the smaller surface and more physical NA-play.

With a little luck he could be a PPG player this season.

A couple of articles where he is mentioned:

He was good in the training camp I was able to make it to. He shoots the puck a lot. Very good instincts in that regard. Getting pucks to the net is rarely a problem for coaches. Will be interested to see his defensive game but his offensive skills are plentiful. Look forward to watching him a ton this season. I think Seth Jones is going to bring a lot of exposure to the Winterhawks other draft eligibles this season.
