Talent Analysis

Jorg skates and handles the puck well, but is often hesitant to shoot. He has a decent sized frame, but playing in Switzerland hasn’t exposed him to a physical style and it’s questionable whether he would be able to handle playing in North America.

 

Future

Jorg was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Devils for 2012-13 and is now an UFA.
