NHL COMPARABLE: Jiri Sekac

UPSIDE: 2nd / 3rd Line Offensive Forward

I’m certainly not as high on Jake Debrusk as many apprear to be. I think he’s a solid pick up as a 2nd round pick but I’m not sold on him being a first round pick, not in this draft. Debrusk has a good combinaion of hands and offensive ability but I don’t see it translating to the NHL. Perhaps it does but there’s a fairly good chance it doesn’t and the element of risk with this particular player in my opinion is why he’s a better pick in the 2nd round. I see him as having an outside shot at a top-6 role and I’m not certain he’d adapt very well beyond that.
