Smh...I don't see any reason not to be excited about Jaskin's recent play in the QMJHL. I haven't see anyone downplaying 19 yr old Jonathan Huberdeau's success. While it's true that Jaskin did play against men in the Czech Extraliga he also played very limited minutes and spent a lot of time in the Czech Junior leagues as well. Not to mention he also played on the larger European ice surface. Even with his experience, it's still very impressive IMO how quickly he's adapting to North American ice. He's currently outscoring both Petr Straka and Martin Frk(two Czech players with much more NA experience)and is now trailing only one point behind future NHL star Nathan MacKinnon. If there exist a hype train for Dmitri Jaskin consider me on it.
