I'm just trying to figure out if Jaskin is showing some playmaking ability.
He may have come across as a pure goal scorer because of his early goal tallie, however is a fantastic playmaker as well. He has great vision and reads plays well which ables him to make crisp passes. This is really working to his advantage at the time being because many Q hockey peoples have him pegged as a pure goal scorer but that's simply not the case at all. Goalies always think he's going to shoot but if he dosn't see an opening or if a pass is warranted , he makes a crisp pass on the tape and sets up his teammate for an easy goal. On another note, Dmitri Jaskin will represent Czech Republic between December 26th - January 5th for the World Junior Championship. No surprise there as he was one of their top players last year.
