NHL COMPARABLE : Jordan Eberle
POTENTIAL : 2nd Line Offensive Forward
CEILING: 2nd Line RW
FLOOR: 3rd Line RW

I find that Jordan Kyrou is underrated and that he’s not getting his fair shake. My comparable for him is Jordan Eberle in the same way that offensive opportunities tend to happen when both those guys are on the ice. They are a sort of offensive catalyst-type, if you will. While Eberle is not perfect and a lot of fans seem to be down on him, being a 60 point forward at the NHL level is nothing to scoff at. I really like the way Kyrou sees the ice and can find seams to find open teammates. In all likelihood, he’s a 2nd or 3rd round pick but I think he’s really got a good shot at the NHL because he thinks the game at a high level. He’s got above-average smarts and offensive-awareness and while he’s maybe only average defensively, I wouldn’t call him a liability. It’s definitely something that he can work on and improve before making the jump to the next level.
