Has turned himself into a great junior player, but I'm not sure if he's anything more than that.

Although not a big forward (although he is "thick"), Skellet isn't afraid to back down and can be a bit of a pest on the ice. He's got good wheels and he's fairly elusive on the ice. Excellent playmaker, good on ice vision. Can make plays at top speed.

On the negative, I'm not sure he's adeptly skilled enough to play a top 6 role in the NHL, and he's currently not much of a factor defensively, which means he's not a good fit for a bottom 6 role. The true identity of your classic tweener.

I like him a lot...as a junior player, but I don't see him as a serious NHL prospect.

Agreed. If he can parlay this season into an AHL deal next year, then he'll be doing well for himself.

I went to school with Jordan since I was 10, he's a really competitive and determined guy. I really hope he succeeds past the OHL. He's been criticized for being a one way player, I haven't been able to see him play much recently but I've heard he's picked up his defensive game.
