A highly skilled forward coming from JRC, Jack van Volsen is certainly amongst the top players available for the 2022 OHL draft. Van Volsen compares himself to someone like Niklas Backstrom, thanks to his very reliable two way game, and his overall defensive game. Van Volsen is also a guy who plays extremely competitively and extremely consistently. This helped van Volsen tie for 4th in points at the OHL cup, with 13 points in 7 games, with a solid 5 goals and 8 assists during that stretch. This is aided by van Volsen’s ability to shoot, as he is easily the best pure goal scorer in the draft, seen by his impressive 46 goal, 110 point season. Van Volsen’s playstyle will definitely be one that many OHL teams will be attracted to, where he could very likely develop into a top 6, two way player, that his team can throw on the ice for a penalty kill or power play. Overall, van Volsen has the skills to compete, and could crack the OHL within his first year or two of being drafted, where he could slot in as a reliable goalscorer on either the wing or at the centre position. If one thing is for certain, van Volsen will be seeing his name being crossed off the draft list when the day comes.
