Jake Sanderson's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "A raw defender who oozes potential. His game seemed to transform as the season wore on. Has all-around upside, including untapped offensive skills. Someone will fall in love early."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "Sanderson, the son of former NHL forward Geoff Sanderson, a mobile puck-mover with a dominant defensive mindset and an improving offensive game. He had 29 points (seven goals, 22 assists) in 47 games and will attend the University of North Dakota next season."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Game continues to improve. Untapped offensive potential. Professional attitude and leadership abilities wreak of a decades-long NHL career."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "Beyond brilliant performance at the BioSteel All-American Top Prospects game gave a glimpse into the future."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "Sanderson is a very good skater who has tantalizing raw tools and could push a team to grab him towards the end of round one."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "The son of former NHL forward Geoff Sanderson, Jake is a raw defender who projects as the top selection from the U.S. Development program this year. A solid skater like his father, Jake combines good size with intriguing upside at both ends."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Hockey sense and skating are traced easily to the bloodlines ó his father is former NHLer Geoff Sanderson. Rates as the complementary defenceman, but with his foundation, thereís plenty of room for growth in his game."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "I like Sanderson's skating, but he's a long term project with nothing much to show for this year. Tuch, I'm just not sure. On that note, I've really enjoyed watching Eamon Powell play."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "Jake is a North Dakota commit with plenty of promise."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "There's zero panic in his game, and his decisions with or without the puck are always on point. He makes the players on the ice better with the steadiness he provides on the back end."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "He isnít going to dazzle on highlight reels and his offensive upside likely isnít elite, but he makes a lot of plays all around the ice. He is very solid defensively due to his mobility and brain, and has enough skill to be a power play guy as a pro."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Excellent sense and feel for all situations. Smooth skater with very good puck skills and he makes things look easy. Composed under pressure."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "A raw defender who oozes potential but needs a lot of refinement. Flashes premier qualities."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "A poised, smooth, built-for-the-modern-game defenseman whose defensive zone coverage needs some work."
