Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Jared is a very complete, two-way defenseman. Hockey sense is one of his strongest attributes, along with competitiveness and size. Used in all situations." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News 2017 Future Watch)

• "By season's end, McIsaac was the top defender on the Mooseheads' blueline and will be a key piece on an up-and-coming young team (in 2017-18). ... Stepped into Canada's Under-18 lineup and played a top-four role in April. He'll need to keep working on his mobility and adjustment to the pace of the game." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "His tool set is impressive, and he has the finesse and power to be a dominant defenseman. But some questions with his decision-making were raised this season (2016-17)." (Jerome Bedard, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Has a great mix of power and speed to his game. He likes to rush the puck, has good skating ability to skate it out of his zone, and good puck skills to go end-to-end with it. He has a strong and powerful stride, generating good speed, and has great acceleration. He's tough to contain, not only because of his speed, but he's strong on his puck as well. ... He has good size and he's strong, but doesn't necessarily play a very physical game in his own zone. He'll need to play with more efficiency in his zone." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Big, strong, rugged. Already a physical mismatch for most of the forwards in the QMJHL." (Red Line Report)
