2009-10: Mark Jankowski skated for the St. Catherine's Falcons midget AAA team in Ontario. In 33 games he scored 11 goals with 14 assists and had 14 penalty minutes.
2010-11: Jankowski transferred to Stanstead College in Quebec, which competes in the Midwest Prep and Canadian High School hockey leagues. In 78 games he scored 36 goals with 46 assists and had 32 penalty minutes. In two playoff games he scored 2 goals with 1 assist and 2 penalty minutes.
2011-12: Jankowski was the leading scorer for Stanstead College and committed to playing college hockey at Providence College in 2013-14. In 57 games for Stanstead College (39-18-6), he scored 53 goals with 40 assists and was plus-51 with 34 penalty minutes. The Saginaw Spirit drafted Jankowski in the seventh round (131st overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Draft. He was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and ranked 43rd amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.
A prospect with some NHL bloodlines, Jankowski has grown several inches in the past year-and-a-half, to the point where he sports at least some of the size that NHL GM's look for in a center prospect. What he lacks is some bulk to go with his currently 6-2 frame as Jankowski weighs just 170 pounds. Nevertheless, the skill and talent appear to be there with Jankowski being a player that can generate offense on his own or in concert with his linemates, with his passing skills being nearly elite level. Jankowski plays a good two-way game and doesn't take many shifts off. As he gets used to his changing body, it is likely that he'll only get better, but playing against better competition will also help to improve Jankowski's game.
Jankowski will play his freshman season at Providence College and should be the top line offensive threat for the Friars this year. The lanky centerman has four year of development at the NCAA to improve his overall game and fill out his lanky frame in order play in the NHL.
