Jakob Chychrun's Player Profile

Craig Button TSN - March 22, 2016 - "Jakob Chychrun (No. 9) is an outstanding skater who uses his feet to his advantage defensively and offensively. The Sarnia Sting blueliner has really settled into being a very confident player who plays to his strengths and exhibits the on-ice poise required to excel."

Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News - March 8, 2016 - "While usurpers such as Olli Juolevi and Mikhail Sergachev threaten his top defense prospect throne, Chychrun just keeps on humming with the Sting. The big, beastly two-way player has seven points in his past five games and now ranks fourth in OHL scoring among D-men."

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "Didnít make WJC team after struggling against CIS teams in exhibition. He wasn't crisp with the puck. The Top Prospects Game will be important for him."

Curtis Joe of Elite Prospects - 2016 - "An unyielding two-way defenceman, Jakob Chychrun is a rising star with a toolbox bursting at the seams. Consistently displays elite four-way skating ability and is not afraid to throw his weight around physically. Plays with poise and composure through high pressure situations and, with the puck on his stick, can direct the play up-ice. Exhibits a particularly potent shot that works its magic on the power play and on the forecheck. Excellent first pass and uses his vision and awareness to keep the puck moving in the direction of the opposition's tail or to a teammate with more time and space. Defensively adept at tracking the puck and staying a step ahead of the opposition. Proactive with his stick and body, exerting pressure on the opposition and forcing them to make hurried decisions."

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "A highly talented kid who makes an impact in every aspect of the game. He has impressive size and strength, solid overall mobility and the hands and smarts to rush the puck. He also possesses a strong point shot, sees the ice well and has ability to move the puck. Defensively, he plays with strong defensive gaps, and has the ability and nastiness to play it physical."
