We never had a chance to assess him last season, as he was playing mainly only very short 4th Line minutes against mature, developed players. During his short time in Juniors last season, he scored at reasonable levels. He's still way too young to determine that he's a bust.

He's doing what we expect. It's Tarasenko who was amazing, doing so well against players much older and more developed than he was 3 and 3 years ago, as a teenager.

Jaskin should have a great season in The Q this year, and be a reasonably highly-rated forward prospect. I'm not worried about him being a bust. I think he's got the tools to be an NHL forward. It just depends upon how much he wants it, as to how hard he works for it.
