I agree. As much as I like to joke about him, he has talent. He was playing against very poor competition and has always been viewed as a long term project. He wasn't going to be leading any league in scoring this year. Next year will be more telling imo

I wouldn't worry about his point totals that much his first year in the NCAA. Its a big adjustment coming in as a "true" freshman, not many players can do it, and even fewer can be PPG players as freshman. His sophomore year will be really telling, most players have very large jumps in productions from freshman to sophomore years. They also seem to have produce much more consistently the second half of their freshman year than the first. I would expect Jankowski will probably do this as well.

Well on the flip side, Seiloff is doing quite well. So that kind of buffers the risk if Janks never amounts to anything.

~0.5PPG for a rookie of his rawness playing in one of the two hardest NCAA divisions is pretty good. Now if he still produces like this as a junior, then there's a problem. But lots of high draft picks have had less than stellar numbers as a freshman and began to pick it up in later years.

Being around .5 ppg isn't bad especially considering the jump in talent he is playing against and he is on one of the lower scoring teams in Hockey East. I don't think anyone expected more from him and he is still 2nd in goals on his team.

I was focusing my attention on BC (Johnny Gaudreau tonight) but am very happy to see some more statistical results for Janko.

Sounds like Gillies had a strong night too.

Let us not forget the most underrated (maybe not underrated, but most 'forgotten' about) prospect in the NCAA - Matt Deblouw. He is also at a PPG in the NCAA, while being VERY good on the face-off dot.

Definitely haven't forgot about DeBlouw, but he doesn't get any recognition here. Maybe I'll make a thread for him. He might end up being our Joe Pavelski... (in terms of 7th round success).

As for Jankowski, he now sits at 4G - 3A in 10games.

It's also positive to note that Providence is a low scoring team and Jankowski is second on the team for points and tied for first in goals.

I don't know what the code is for links and I'm on my phone, so you'll have to do a little work for now...

I'd say a comparable situation (not player) would be Chris Kreider. I remember the write up in THN's draft edition described scouting his games like watching Gretzky at a pick up game, does he look impressive because he actually is, or because the competition makes him look good. Fast forward to his first season at BC and the numbers were solid (17-9-26 in 40 games) for a rook, but not mind blowing by any means. Jankowski chose the right path to develop the biggest weakness to his game (size and strength, light schedule and university training facility should remedy that).

With that said, as an Oiler fan I'm hoping he is Riley Nash v2.0.

Come on now, as an Oiler fan you should be hoping for excellence so the Battle of Alberta can finally become interesting again!

An update on his physical development from his coach:

Quote:
When the Hamilton, ON product entered the Flames development camp in July, one word to describe his frame was lanky. Standing at 6-foot-3, Jankowski weighed approximately 170 lbs. Knowing he would be squaring off against much larger players from that point forward, the pivot spent a considerable amount of his time in the gym this summer looking to bulk up.

That strength training regimen continued at Providence and Leaman has noticed a drastic change in his first month and half with the Friars.

"He's now 182 lbs. and he's been holding that season. He's adding weight. He's working hard on his strength. That's a big plus, that's a great gain.

"His game is only going to get better. He's grown an inch, I think, in the past six months also. He's still growing."

Wow didn't realize he was that big! If his skills translate he should be a force.

gaining 40 pounds might be a bit too much to hope for.

Would be nice if he is close to 200 by the time he is pro.

agreed. I think 205 is a realistic expectation... He could probably hit 210, but it would take a lot of work.

He's never going to be a dominating physical force. Jeff Carter is a little taller and he isn't even 200.

I think 195+ would be the goal weight for his rookie season.

I am very happy with Jankowski's progress in the NCAA. His 7 points in 10 games is respectable for a highly regarded rookie, but, and I think coach Leaman touched on this in one of his interviews, Jankowski hasn't had the greatest bounces. What I mean by this is a lot of points that could and should have been just haven't happened, whether it's a post or whatever. Once he transitions more, gets used to the speed and tempo of the NCAA and knows what to expect, he should be able to accumulate more of those chances. Just the other games Leaman said, while Jankowski had 3 points, he could have had 5 with the way he was playing.

Well, the Flames drafted him because they believe that he has #1C potential and was vastly underrated by scouts in the draft.

But of course the twenty teams that drafted before Calgary either begged to differ or didn't really give him a look, so who knows? He's a huge wildcard.
