Jason is a very versatile forward who is capable of playing all three forward positions. A very good skater with speed, quickness, agility. Very smart in all regards and he can make plays with the puck or get himself open to receive the puck. He uses his body well and he gets involved and competes in all of the hard areas. Overall, a player who has terrific upside and he may just be beginning to ‘tap into’ his vast potential.
