Jake DeBrusk's Player Profile

Jake DeBrusk, son of former NHLer Louie DeBrusk, is a mature, intelligent winger. He reminds me a lot of the way Daniel Sedin plays; he can make plays happen, using his creative passing ability, or he can be dangerous with a sneaky little shot. Where he and D. Sedin differ is that he can grind it out in the corners, and he is also able to play extremely well without the puck.

He is a shy player in the locker room, but he has confidence beyond his age on the ice. His linemates benefit from the style of game he brings, which is a high-tempo, playoff-type mentality; this can catch the opposition sleeping sometimes, and he puts up points utilizing his strengths. When he is on the ice, you can definitely sense the youth, excitement and energy he brings to the table.

  • Incredibly High Hockey IQ; Thinks the Game at a High Level
  • Creativity with the Puck
  • Play without the Puck
  • Makes his Linemates Better
  • Workhorse; Hard-nosed Work Ethic
  • High-Tempo, Energy-Based Scoring

  • What He Needs To Work On:
  • Size & Conditioning
  • Consistency
  • Fine-tuning his individual skills: he is a raw talent; he must work on his individual skills (ex. shot, hands, skating) to make a difference at the next level

  • Who He Reminds Me Of:
  • Daniel Sedin
  • Tommy Wingels
  • Joffrey Lupul
  • Tyler Toffoli
  • Where Will He Go?
  • Late 1st -> Early 3rd Round
