Talent Analysis

Jaskin is a big, strong player who is difficult to defend and is nearly impossible to bump off the puck. He has a mean streak, never backing down when challenged, which can sometimes get him into penalty trouble. Some scouts have questioned whether he is always motivated to play, as he tends to be a streaky player.

Future

Jaskin attended training camp with the Blues before being assigned to AHL affiliate Chicago to start the 2014-15 season. Shuffling between St. Louis and the Wolves during the first half of the season he has again been one of the top scorers at the AHL level but has played more of a lower line role for the Blues. Long-term he is expected to become one of the top line forwards for St. Louis in the future as he gets more accustomed to the professional game in North America and matures physically.
