I always thought that Seth Jones reminded me a lot of Victor Hedman around the same age.
Great skaters, unafraid to lead the puck up ice.
Uses speed to close the gap, good stick work.
Strong outlet pass.
Big, but not imposing in terms of punishing checks.
Prone to mental errors when trying to do too much, need to play a simple style of game.
Not a strong enough core (yet) and can be knocked off balance.
They just seem to be similar players, this may come as a knock on Seth Jones because I know Hedman isn't that well received right now but I think both will be solid NHLers.
