Jacob LeGuerrier’s Elite Prospects Stats Page


LeGuerrier is a solid smooth-skating defensive defenceman with decent vision and playmaking abilities. His skating is above-average for a player his size. He moves really well laterally and agility is not really an issue for him. Defensively he is pretty good at staying with his opponents and either stopping them in their tracks with a hit or using his long reach to break up plays. LeGuerrier is a solid first pass defenceman who also shows decent playmaking skills in the offensive zone. His release overall is below average as he doesn’t generate enough velocity or threat when shooting. – JD



“He’s not going to wow anyone with his puck-skills and rarely will flash a high-level
of play; however, he will make clean and intelligent plays that extend through all three zones. His skating is above average for his size. He’s a powerful kid who has some fluidity in his stride and this allows him to skate the puck up the ice and feel comfortable when walking the line.” – (HockeyProspect.com)

“Defensively, LeGuerrier is beyond sound. His skating and long reach allows him to keep gaps very tight. He is difficult to beat one on one. He has a physicality in his game to go along with his size. He can ride opponents out along the walls, win the physical battles and is a force in front of the blue paint.” – Dominic Tiano (OHLWriters)

“Big, two-way defender. Terrific skater with fluid agility. Uses his reach and physicality well in his own zone. Has untapped offensive potential.” – (Draft Prospects Hockey)
