Observations:

 

February 2014 - It has been a tough adjustment for Jacobs coming from junior hockey to the AHL where he hasn't been able to get anything going registering just a single assist in 20 games played. It has been a struggle for him to even crack the lineup in Rochester as the Americans have a wealth of veteran centermen to compete against and when you’re not producing it makes things even tougher. Jacobs is going to need to try and string some spirited performances together when given another opportunity if he hopes to get into more games and warrant more ice time. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him get sent back down to the ECHL affiliate Elmira Jackals in an attempt to get him into more game action and a chance at playing in a bigger role. At this point Jacobs doesn't seem to be a player to keep an eye on at all but in the next year we will get a better indication or where Jacobs stands within the organizations prospect depth chart.

February 2013 - After starting the year at a torrid pace, Jacobs has since slowed. He is currently sitting at 38 points in 51 games. Despite the slowed production, Jacobs is still on pace to set a career high in points. He will need to start heating up if he wants his Prince George Cougars to make a late season playoff push.

November 2012 – Jacobs was dealt to the Prince George Cougars in the offseason and the change of scenery seems to be working wonders. He is currently operating at a point-per-game pace this year with 22 points in 22 games. He has already surpassed his numbers from last year and is on pace to set career highs. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

April 2012 – Jacobs regressed this year in large part due injuries which limited his season to 44 games. He only put up 19 points, a huge drop off from the 44 he registered in his draft year. Jacobs is a big powerful forward that works hard at both ends of the ice. Look for him to spend another year in the WHL, where he will get every opportunity to be the go to guy in Seattle.

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

Average offensively. Needs to develop and round out his game.
