From HockeyDB:


"A true team player and leader. De la Rose always gives 100% and leads his team with his intensity and work ethic. Has an edge to his game and does not shy away from the rough stuff. Has good timing in his hits. Sound defensively. Not likely to become a high scoring player, as he is not a natural scorer, but his strong two-way and forechecking ability along with his attitude makes him a very valuable part of any team. (EP, 2013)"

From Hockeys Future:

Talent Analysis

Jacob is a tall, gangly and rangy forward who likes to play it rough. He spent the entire season playing against men in Sweden’s second highest league (48 total games) and it shows. Great power forward potential and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Stickhandling and puck-possession skills are above-average. Doesn’t hesitate to pass or shoot. Initiates contact on his own accord. Fairly good speed for a player of his size, but still has a lot of room on his frame for more muscle. Can cycle well in the corners. His game includes a little bit of everything and he appears to be yet another Swede who is already defensively responsible. A leader type who doesn’t shy away from that responsibility. First line player at the U18, 3rd liner at the U20 and for Leksand in the Allsvenskan, which gained promotion this past season.

Seems like a good penalty-killer.

Here's a video on him. #25,,,,it's in Swedish.

For his age, those are respectable stats. He is playing against men in Sweden.

Anyone know if he'll be joining our dogs or spending another year in Sweden?

He is junior eligible, and was drafted by the Windsor Spitfires in the import draft.

He said today if he can get out of his contract he will come over.

Brilliant news.

For an offensive dynamo like Collberg I care little and less about where he decides to develop, but for a big guy who prides himself on his 2 way play I love the idea of him coming over here.

Likely he won't get out of his contract though...

He's playing in Sweden next year, folks.

And nothing really wrong with that. on the one hand he plays a different type of game over there, but on the other, he's playing against fully grown men. I dont think this is a bad thing for his development, it just may hurt his off-ice adjustment to north america, but we'll see.

5 goals, 5 assists for 10 points in 31 games for the SHL. That's very good,especially since he's out producing a year older Collberg in the same league despite basing his game more on 2 way play and physicality. That's not to say he's better, as Collberg seems to do better against peo0e his age.

Excited to see what he can do in the WJC.

Espoirs @Habsfuture 2h

RT @AndyMPressoir: On m'informe que Jacob De La Rose est dans la loge de Bergevin ce soir. Son contrat en Suède prenait fin début avril

Interesting...

To translate, De La Rose was watching the Habs vs. Islanders game at the Bell Center alongside Marc Bergevin. His contract in Sweden ended at the begining of April...

That being said, usually players sign extensions with their European clubs before their contracts ends, if they plan on staying in Europe.

De La Rose currently has NO contract, and could sign with the habs shortly.

HOWEVER, interesting to note that he was drafted in 2013 by the Windsor Spitfires in the CHL import draft...

I'm not sure if that would prevent him from playing in the AHL next season.

He is still currently 18 years of age, but usually, players under 20 years of age are able to transfer from a European club to the AHL if they choose to do so. The fact that he was drafted by Windsor might prevent him from doing that.

So he may end up playing for the Windsor Spitfires next season.

Timmins described him as the player the most ready to turn pro out of all the players they drafted in 2013.

Well we certainly didn't do ourselves any favours in making us look more appealing :lol:
