Why is no one talking about EDM Oil Kings G Tristian Jarry?

Right now he is the third ranked North American goalie and is projected to go in rounds 2-5. Can someone explain to me why this kid is not getting more hype? At 17 years old he is dominating the WHL.

Some insanely impressive stats - 15-5 record - 6 shutouts - 1.56GAA - .938sv%

Has pretty good size at 6-2 175 for a 17 year old. So what's the deal? Is EDM's D superb and gets STL blues like games cira 2011-2012 and gets 12 shots from the blue line?

Shhhh, Edmonton doesn't want people to know. For sure they would target him as the Oils goaltending depth is weak.

He projects like a starter, but you never know at that age.

I think most want to see how he can handle a major workload of being a starter. It reminds me of the situation of Charlie Graham (I like Jarry better) out of Belleville.

Heck of a player, but he's being put in a pretty good situation to win games and post above average numbers. The Oil Kings have the best D group in the WHL and arguably in the CHL.

Not to discredit him, I have him pegged as a likely late-2nd rounder, but there's more that goes into it then just his numbers.

Same reason why nobody talked about Brossiot, not knowing if it's a product of the team and less media exposure since he wasn't picked for WJC due to favoritism.
