Saw him last night against Acadie-Bathurst Titan. He was impressive, really REALLY wants the puck and knows how to put it in. He has a real nose for the net. Someone earlier said Hartnell, which I think is a fair comparaison.

i didn't think much of him as playing in Slavia Praha HC didn't seem to be helping him develop, but now that he's moved to the CHL, and he's starting to show what he can do offensively, i think he may yet be a pretty good 2nd round pick up for the Blues.

What I saw from him, his skating wasn't an issue at all. Not sure why everyone is knocking him about it. He's a decent skater that goes to the dirty areas and has a great offensive arsenal.

Jaskin has tremendous upside. He's a big, hard working powerforward who has a nose for the net. He posseses a lethal shot with dead on accuracy. He's definately not a perimeter player, he prefers going through defenders. He's also very "slippery" and defenders have a hard time knocking him off the puck. Imo, skating is one of his strong points. He has 10 goals, 3 assists for 13 points in 11 games with the Wildcats. Very intriguing prospect that I will enjoy following this season.

From what I saw of him last year his speed really needed to improve. He would have been far more successful for the Czech's had it been. It seems most Czech players these days have little footspeed when they come to North America so it's not only him. Faksa had to work on his a lot and Hertl has apparently improved his skating since being drafted (although Hertl is skilled enough that he could get by without it) and you can also see it with Musil and Frk. Not sure what causes it, but it's odd for sure.

I haven't seen anything other than Youtube videos since he's been playing with Moncton so I can't comment on how he's been this year. If he's improved his speed to a reasonable level then he'll do just fine in the pro ranks.

Thanks for the info. I'm extremely excited about Jaskin and have been following him since before the Blues drafted him. He was actually selected 1st overall in the 2010 KHL draft which is what originally caught my attention. I'm not sure what his true potential is at this point, but it certainly doesn't hurt that he's currently outscoring guys like Huberdeau and Grigorenko. Besides his ability to shoot...it seems his biggest strong points in the past have been his size, physicality, and strength on the puck. I'm very glad to hear that his skating has picked up as well. I wish there was more video of him though, but I really appreciate anything that you guys have to add. Hopefully he continues to tear it up, and becomes another sleeper pick for the Blues.

Too early to tell. Apparently he's improved a ton since last year, but the Q's lack of defense can cause inflated stats. Let's see how he does on a scoring line at the WJC against the Canada's and Russia's of the world before we make any definitive statements. I think he'll be an NHL player eventually, but let's see how he does in the WJC this year.

How he performs in the AHL next year will be a much greater indicator of future success than a quick Junior tournament in January.

Goals per game in the Q has been pretty comparable to the OHL and WHL for a few years now. And the top scorers have had similar totals, too. The idea of the Q as an all-offense league that inflates stats is outdated.

I think they're close to the OHL/WHL statistically. Plus Jaskin plays on a Danny Flynn run team. Moncton has the most defensive systems in the league and Jaskin is still producing well offensively. If he played on an "offense first" minded team(Halifax,Quebec,Rouyn-Noranda,Victoriaville even Bathurst) , he'd be among the league's top 5 scorers. He would have at least 33% more goals/points than he does now.

Is Jaskin more of a powerforward or more of an opportunistic goal-scorer? As in, does he power his way to the net and mainly battle along the boards, or is a guy that likes hovering in front of the net for those deflections and garbage goals?

This is a very out dated comment. The Q defense is now just as good as the WHL or OHL. Also, as was mentioned earlier, Jaskin plays on a Danny Flynn run team. That coach is the definition of a defense first coach.

I'm wondering this as well.

Anyone?

Pretty sure Moncton uses him on the point on the PP, but i'm not sure. Saw him play last night and could've had 3 goals. He scored one yesterday with an awesome snipe. He loves to shoot & power to the net. Loves shooting though.

He's been playing that way all year long. He protects the puck well and uses his size and strenght to drive the net. Always wants the puck on his stick and has a great shot. Very solid hands and good wheels.

Another 4 points tonight. He is clearly the best player playing for Moncton, and he gets a TON of ice time. He shifted wings all the time and even saw time manning the point on the PP. He loves to shoot the puck, pretty sure he had 7 or 8 tonight, but what impressed me as well was his passing. Every pass was on the tape, almost perfect passes every time. His only weakness is that he is not the most graceful skater, but he still gets to where he needs to get to easily enough, and he actually back-checked quite a bit. Looks like a solid prospect to me.

Upon request from a St.Louis fan I posted this on their boards..

I think this guy deserves his own thread. Dmitri Jaskin made the move to Moncton and has arrived better than expected. After a medicore season in a european pro league , Jaskin is flourishing in his first stint in the CHL. He's proved himself well worthy of being chosen in the first round, 22nd overall, in the CHL Import draft this past June. Dmitri , a 6'2" 203 pound power forward, flanks the right side of Russian sensation Ivan Barbashev and the two have formed instint chemistry since arriving here not that long ago. They compliment each other well and are good enough that it dosn't matter who plays on the left side of Moncton's second line. His transition from europe to North American was a smooth one. Jaskin is a fan favourite for his "fine fashion" goal scoring. He's defiantely that last thing from a perimeter player as he goes through his opponents. He plays with an edge and is fearless when battling along the boards and digging in the corner. He extremely strong and almost impossible to knock off the puck. He uses his stick very effectively while defending, he can often strip his opponents of the puck .He's definately not affraid to do the work and says it's okay because it's rewarding when the puck ends up in the back of the net. Jaskin posseses a lethal shot with dead on accuracy which causes big problems for the opposing team's goaltenders. He can also be found using his "one timer" slap shots on the squad's first powerplay unit. Dmitri Jaskin comes as advertised and has an excellent hockey IQ, he reads plays very well. One of his previous flaws ,according to many hockey people, was his skating and foot speed. This was partcially due to a knee injury which he sustained a year prior. That has completely changed. If anything, skating is now one of his fortes and that is probably to do with exhausting excerise routine and dedication to obtaining his dream of playing in the NHL. Dmitri Jaskin is now tied for first in team scoring with overage star forward and fourth year veteran, Alex Saulnier. He currently has 15 goals and 12 assists for 27 points in only 20 contests. His pace is seemingly picking up as time goes on and he is improving everyday.He looks like a man, playing amongst boys. I look forward to following his progress and know he'll be in the NHL in the very near future.

*This was posted a couple of days ago so stats wise you can add 2goals and 2 assists that he scored last night in Gatineau.

Great report on him. I would add this:

-The guy never miss the net with his shot. I mean never. His shooting percentage his like 90%.

-Knock on him: Shift too long, play a bit too much individual, would be nice if his first step were a bit faster. Good speed but first step would need a tad more acceleration.

-On the PP, since the arrival of Narbonne, Moncton plays a diamond like strategy. Jaskin has the right and does an hybride Kovalev/Cammalleri move on the side. So sweet. Last game vs BLB, on the Barbashev goal, he made a 360 degree to get in front the net and he made a good shot. Barbs put in the garbage in the scrum.

I've seen him play a couple of time and I never walked off disapointed

Pretty interesting prospect. Good grab STL

Dmitrij Jaskin on fire

Since coming back from a very good showing at the WJC's, Jaskin in 3 games has 5 goals and 8 assists for 13 pts and is completely dominating.

My question for those that get to watch him in the Q, what do you feel is his upside? For me the things I notice the most is how good his hands are for a guy his size and how well he sees the ice. You can tell he has a high hockey IQ as well with the passes he makes. I personally think his upside could be a Bertuzzi-type with a good chance to at the very least be a very solid bottom six grinder. What do you all think?

He's a bit of a man among boys in the Q, he has great size, it's his second post-draft season, and he's already been playing against men for two years in the Czech league. I like him as a prospect, though, he seems to have improved his skating, and as you noted he has nice hands and some pretty decent offensive talent for a 2-way power forward type. I definitely don't think he's going to be close to as good as prime Bertuzzi, and he's not as intimidating either, but I do see him as a future NHLer.
