I remember reading about him in the local paper 2 years ago and I was hoping he'd be taller by now.

Someone mentioned his brother Justin who is only 5'11 so I wouldn't be surprised if Seth doesn't get much taller.

He's about 6'5" now, don't believe any of the 6'3" crap you hear, unless he somehow shrunk since Thanksgiving when I last saw him.

Are you implying that he might not play with the NTDP this upcoming season? Or are you referring to the fact that he's still deciding if he'll go to the WHL or NCAA after his NTDP commitment is done?

Most of those comments on that article are incredibly racist, the article was slightly as well if I read a few of the lines right but still it was a really good writeup on why he played hockey, kinda the same idea as the Hockey News article about a year and a half ago but more indepth.

Maybe of was just me but a couple things seem racist depending on how you read it.

How does he compare to Dougie Hamilton? Both big 2-way defenceman with a similar skillset and I expect Seth's growth pattern to be around the same as Dougie's and end up around the same size.

Yeah you definitely just talked to him.

Still not sure how you would be privy to that information. You'll forgive me if I don't quite take what you say as what's actually going to happen. He's still got a year left with the USNTDP so there would be no reason for his mind to be made up yet.

Ok don't belive me I honestly don't care, you might just belive me when he goes to play there. Also I was just telling people what his decision was a head of time so people would know. If theres a way I can send pictures (not links) on hf boards I will send u a picture of our conversation.

In for the pics. Don't care either way, but visual proof that you know Seth Jones would add a new wrinkle of hilarity to the board.

Short little video where you can see his relative size and shot. He's working out with several of the Dallas Stars/prospects (Lehtonen and Campbell in net, Benn, Morrow, Ribeiro and Robidas the other skaters). Jones is in red.

Look at those shots, thank God I'm not an NHL goalie.

What a big advantage for a young kid to be able to hit the ice with current NHL stars.

The Official Seth Jones Thead (2013)

We need one for this guy... He's an incredibly gifted player... I saw him play against my University (U of Denver), and he was dominant as a 16 year old. Here's my take from that game:

Quote:
Seth Jones (NTDP) was head and shoulders above the rest of the players when it came to poise... I couldn't believe he was 16 years old... WOW, there's a reason he's captain. He did everything right (he was responsible for the 3rd GA but in his defense he was pretty much left alone). He was leading his teammates and directing them at all times on the ice... He always seemed to know where to be and where the puck would end up... He is BIG and I mean BIG... He's still lanky and he looks young so I think he's not done growing... But he's also fast as hell and is very very agile. He can put the breaks on in a flash (which is great for a guy his size), and is very mobile. He's not a huge hitter but I think it stems from playing against 18-23 year old players instead of people his age, but he's definitely got a ton of poise and confidence. I think he'll end up challenging for first overall in 2013... I thought he was good before this game but damn... He impressed the hell out of me. He's got a good shot from the point but it's not on target always... His offensive prowess comes from his LASER tape-to-tape passes that almost seemed like frustrated passes... He was definitely frustrated his team was losing. Overall he's going to be an awesome 2-way defender... He sticks to his man like glue and can't be deked out...
He'll be a surefire top 5 pick and IMHO a challenger for 1st overall.

Would you agree that he needs to improve his lateral movement? I remember him having difficulty with Team Ontario's forwards cycling and genereal shiftiness in the World Hockey Challenge final.

Great skater and makes a very nice first pass. I just remember him having some trouble in his own zone with shifty forwards. Thanks for your input.

When I saw him that didn't seem to be much of an issue. He could but the breaks on easily to cover guys like Nick Shore and Luke Salazar who were extremely shifty. When he has the puck he's not agile but he's fast and can easily pick an open piece of ice to blast through and find someone to get the puck to.

His shot from the point is pretty terrible. A few times he resorted to using a wrister that went wide... He will not be a goalscorer but his passing is already NHL level. They're tape-to-tape through traffic... It's insanity.
