Observations

January 2020 – Jake Neighbours is a solid 200-foot winger who likes to play with a bit of an edge. He already has a sturdy frame at 5-11 and over 200lbs which allows him to engage physically and win battles with a high rate of efficiency. He has no problem going through a defender rather than around but he has good enough hands to make a move in space. His skating is good but he does lack high-end top-speed. His first-step quickness is the difference-maker with Neighbours as the young Oil Kings’ winger consistently beats players from a standstill position and then has a good enough top-speed to stay ahead in the race. His shot is above average because of his deceptive release. The puck jumps off his stick, elevating it from in tight with ease. Neighbours vision and playmaking lack creativity at times but he makes passes look effortless in the offensive zone. As a player who plays on both special teams, he should be able to find a role on just about any team fairly quickly. Tony Ferrari
