History

An eighth round pick, Jaaskelainen started out as a long shot. His development was decent at best and he was disappointing in the 2003 World Junior Championships but then took a turn for the better, nowadays a core defenseman for Ilves.

Future
His career is fighting an uphill battle against the limits of time and potential chasing the threshold of NHL hockey.
