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 just want to correct one thing in your post. The QMJHL age range is 16-20, not 16-19.

Also, there are far more 18-20 year olds than 16-17 year olds. There 22, 18-20 year olds on Jaskins team.

I just don't want it to seem like Jaskin is playing mostly guys younger than him. He is going up against a lot of guys that are right near him in age.
