Observations

October 2018 – The Red Wings have claimed De La Rose off waivers from Canadiens.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2018 – De La Rose won a gold medal with Team Sweden at the World Championships. Sweden went undefeated and De La Rose played a big part in that success. By the time Sweden had reached the group stage De La Rose was centering Predator star forwards Filip Forsberg and Victor Arvidsson in a similar role he played in Montreal with Galchenyuk and Lehkonen. The 23-year-olds confidence should be soaring after his strong finish to the hockey season and hopefully, we see by the time training camp rolls around. Mike Barrett

January 2018 – After being a healthy scratch for 10 straight games, Jacob De La Rose was finally inserted into the lineup at the expense of Daniel Carr, who’s hot start cooled off. Prior to his 10 game exclusion, it looked as if he had taken a step forward in his development, seeming much faster and more aggressive out there. All of a sudden he was around the puck more and attempting to create offense with it, as opposed to the very tentative, cautionary game he used to play in the NHL. Perhaps something clicked for him and it all slowed down because De La Rose again looked like an NHLer in his return to the Canadiens fourth line. If he continues to play a high energy, two-way game while making the most of his size, DLR will continue to see ice and could have a bright future as a role player in Montreal. Mike Barrett

December 2017 – Having stuck with Montreal for the entire 2017-18 campaign thus far, de la Rose has been effective as a fourth liner, even picking up some top-six play with Jonathan Drouin’s recent injury and illness. Serving as a pivot between Alex Galchenyuck and Paul Byron during their 10-1 victory over Detroit, the trio tallied four goals and six assists in one of the Canadiens’ more dominant performances this year. His main calling card at the moment is his physicality, adding 32 hits in 21 contests, which he employs regularly on their penalty-killing unit. At age 22, he should see many more NHL opportunities to show what else he can do on the ice. Kevin Wickersham

 

March 2015 – Despite mediocre point totals in the AHL, de la Rose earned a call-up to the Canadiens and is now centering the third line. In 17 NHL games he has just three points but has made his mark physically with 47 hits and is frequently on the ice during the final minute protecting leads. While it does not appear that de la Rose will be a big scorer anytime soon, the fact that he might be in the NHL permanently is a big step in a player potentially becoming a productive fantasy player. Eric Daoust

 

November 2014 – Through 11 games in his first year in North America, de la Rose has just one assist. Despite the positive signs he showed at training camp with his all-around play, his offensive game has a long way to go. Eric Daoust

 

October 2014 – Despite being only 19 years of age, de la Rose made a strong impression at camp with his all-around play. His reliability could land him a spot in the bottom-six sooner than later. Eric Daoust

 

August 2014 – After coming over to train with the organization during their surprising playoff run, the big Swede they call DLR had even bigger expectations heading to development camp. He delivered. The size-speed combination scouts have been raving about for years was on full display. De La Rose impressed during individual drills and dominated throughout scrimmages. Relying on work ethic to compliment his skill, the 19-year-old already plays a pro-style game. DLR wrecked havoc in the offensive zone at camp with his forecheck causing turnovers and creating chances for himself and teammates as he used his size effectively, especially along the boards.

His eagerness to learn and natural physical abilities will get him a taste of the NHL as early as this season, most likely after a short stint in Hamilton to touch up on some offense and the North American ice. His all-around game is a great fit for Montreal. While he may not have the offensive skills of a top scorer, I believe De La Rose is the type of player whose offense will blossom as he develops. Mike Barrett

June 2014 – With an entry-level contract signed, de la Rose appears set to start his development in North America with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs. He does not possess top-end offensive skills but his strong two-way play will help him earn ice time which will help him maximize his point output. Eric Daoust

 

January 2014 – Jacob de la Rose represented Sweden at the Under-20 World Junior Championships in Malmo, Sweden. He had a strong showing with six points, tied for fifth on the team, along with 21 shots on goal in seven games as his country captured silver. Meanwhile, in 31 contests for the Swedish Hockey League’s Leksands IF he ranks fifth among the team’s forwards with 10 points. Eric Daoust

 

July 2013 – Jacob de la Rose will play the 2013-14 season in Sweden.

 

July 2013 – Montreal Canadiens second round selection, Jacob de la Rose, was taken 11th overall in the 2013 CHL Import Draft by the Windsor Spitfires. If de la Rose decides to sign with and join the Spitfires, he would join fellow Habs prospect Brady Vail. Brendan Ross

 

July 2013 – De la Rose was selected by the Canadiens in the second round (34th overall). He could be the guy to eventually inherit Tomas Plekanec’s tough defensive assignments. Eric Daoust

 

June 2013 – With Jacob de la Rose you know what you are getting – a two-way forward with great versatility. He enters the 2013 NHL Entry Draft as a fringe first round prospect and that value stems from his ability to play all three positions and eat up tough minutes. De la Rose is a great skater with who employs good physicality but his offensive ceiling is relatively low. Look for de la Rose to develop into a player a coach relies on for tough defensive minutes and become a real quality third line centre. Jacob de la Rose posted a modest six goals and 12 points in 38 games for Leksand. Brendan Ross

April 2018 – After scoring just four points over the first 33 games, De La Rose responded very well added responsibility he was given after the trading of Tomas Plekanec. Flanked by Alex Galchenyuk and Artturi Lehkonen, all three players had simple, complementary roles and each took off offensively. De La Rose racked up eight points in just 18 games, showing his first flash of offensive potential in a Habs jersey. The big centerman has a great chance at securing the fourth line center spot next season as he continues to develop in the NHL. Mike Barrett
