Jason Dickinson's Player Profile

Although Dickinson has a lot of potential, he experienced an up-and-down season. He is an above-average, if not a plus skater, with a quick, efficient stride. He requires few steps to generate the speed he needs to get up the ice. He also has a great top gear, with impressive agility. He is a very coordinated puckhandler, who can display a high level of creativity and one-on-one ability. Combining that with his good offensive instincts, his quality release, and his physicality, it is understandable why one scout would describe him as a player who has the ability to simply take over a game. He is also an advanced defensive thinker, who takes his assignments well. However, scouts are concerned with his consistency. It is not always there in terms of his physical play, or his ability to keep the play going in the right direction. His effort is not a universal area of concern with scouts, as some believe it to be a major plus. He also needs to get stronger. Dickinson profiles as a high-risk, high-reward type of prospect for whichever team selects him.

Dickinson has taken some nice steps forward this year with Guelph… Big centre who is emerging as a 3-zone player… Effective on the PK and understands defensive responsibilities… Offensive game shows flashes but needs more consistency… Longer term prospect with Top 6 upside.
