DeSerres, Jacob - G - Seattle

Jacob DeSerres / Seattle Thunderbirds WHL
G-L / 6-1.5, 195 / 18-Mar-1990

Quickness: 50 / Glove: 55 / Reads: 55 / Technique: 60 / Poise: 60

Strengths: Excellent rebound control. Good reads and comes out to challenge. Good size and sees through traffic well. Calm. Plays big.

Weaknesses: Very odd footwork. Does not shuffle across the crease well. Average overall quickness.

Outplayed Riku Helenius at times this season. Good middle rounder. Needs some coaching on footwork. Debatable whether Holby or DeSerres is the 2nd best Dub goaltender after Pickard. Holtby is more athletlic, DeSerres is more technically sound.

Summary: Could turn into decent NHL backup.

Target/Want: Would rather have Holtby, but only slightly. End of 3rd, early 4th. Not likely to last until there, however.
