Eberle, Jordan - C - Regina

Jordan Eberle / Regina Pats WHL
C-R / 5-10, 174 / 15-May-1990

Skating: 60 / Skill: 70 / Sense: 60 / Compete: 30 / Tough: 45

Strengths: Great sniper's touch. Knows how to find scoring chances. Quick hands. Will take a hit to make a play.

Weaknesses: Casual player - effort level is never there. Tends to stick to the perimeter.

One of the best natural goal scorers in the draft. I'd like him a lot more if he ever broke a sweat. Skating seems alright, but almost never uses what speed he has. I'll say one thing for him, he's not scared. I'd rather have a lazy player than a scared one.

Summary: Light a fire under him and you might have a 1st/2nd line scorer.

Target/Want: Would think about him late in the 1st if other players I like are gone. Hard to find this kind of scoring touch late in the 1st.
