He's having a good season like I thought he would (big difference between being a 17-18 yr old in a pro men's league and a 19 yr old in a league primarily of 16-19 yr olds) but let's not overdo it with the Jaskin hype just yet.
I agree as many people have put up crazy numbers in junior, yet it didn't translate to the pro game. Remember Kyle Reeves? 89 goals in the WHL? Nope? Ha ha. Big jump from College, Europe, and Juniors to the pro minor level and big jump from pro minors to NHL.
