Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "His tremendous skating and puck skills have already drawn comparisons to Erik Karlsson from at least one high-ranking scout. Almost scored a point-per-game in the SuperElit Under-20, a strong indication that Jesper's younger brother will be a major point-producer going forward." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "Has a good, accurate point shot on the power play, and an excellent release on his shot. ... Always looking to rush the puck, he has great hands and stick-handles the puck like a forward. His footwork is above-average, and his quick and agile feet help him keep up with opposing players off the rush. However, he's physically immature and still has a lot to learn defensively. These two traits will be key for him... to determine how good of an NHL prospect he will be." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
