Seth Jones is one of the top prospects in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, and this play shows why.
The 6'4", 206-pound defenseman plays for the Portland Nighthawks of the WHL and is putting up huge numbers. He has 12 goals and 40 assists in only 57 games. He's a remarkable plus-41.
Jones has the requisite size to be a shutdown defenseman but the speed and agility to be a factor on offense.
This play, where he goes coast to coast and looks like a man among boys, shows what he can do. He has the strength to bully pass defenders, as well as the speed and puck-handling ability to finish.
Jones could end up being the No.1 overall pick in the draft and projects as a two-way defenseman who will shut down opposing players, as well as put up big offensive numbers.
Think Drew Doughty with more defensive discipline.
