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.
Hedman is just underrated in this boards, he's #1 on Tampa (ok, one of the worst defenses of league
) but he's better than its said here by most posters.
Anyway, Jones for me is equally as good defensively and better offensively at the same point in careers, and I think Seth has even a bigger potential than Hedman
