Jessiman had a few decent years at Dartmouth before missing the majority of the 04-05 season to injury.
In 05-06, he was injured several more times in splitting time between Hartford and Charlotte. So that year was kind of a bust.
I think everyone was hoping this would be the year Jessiman would start to establish himself on the AHL level... but obviously that's not panned out... yet.
But consider that his road to the pro's was a priveleged Connecticut prep school and then an Ivy league college. That's not typical especially for a 1st rounder. He might just need a few extra years of seasoning that he would have otherwise gained already if he went the CHL route as a teenager.
I'm hopeful at least that he is not a total bust, but rather a late bloomer.
