One of the top goal scorers in the ETA, Yenry Jibb has no problem finding the back of the net when his number is called. Yenry Jibb is a threat each time he is on the ice, able to impact the game both offensively and defensively. Jibb has a phenomenal shot, able to beat even the best of goalies. Jibb is able to get the puck past net-minders from both distance or up close and personal by crashing the net. Jibb has spectacular hockey IQ, able to see the ice well, Jibb's vision has spectators questioning if he has eyes in the back of his head. Jibb's ability to read the ice and think one step ahead of the opposition makes him a dangerous player as he is a threat to put points on the board anytime he gains possession of the puck. Jibb is not just a scorer however, he is as complete as they come. A strong two-way center man, Jibb is able to fight for loose pucks, as well as make hard checks on players in his zone in order to gain control. Jibb is strong on the face-off dot, able to fight hard on the puck and make quick reads to set up his line mates for scoring chances or to reset and move out from their own end safely. Jibb is the definition of a competitor, always playing with a chip on his shoulder. Jibb has no problem grinding it out during the course of a game, doing the dirty work and scraping along the ice in order to secure his team the victory. Jibb is rapidly developing and is a dedicated player. Jibb has a high ceiling and has not yet scratched the surface of his true potential. Jibb's future will need to be heavily monitored as we could be seeing a great player quickly blossom.
