Jordan’s game is based around his efficient skating ability, intelligence, and subtle platform skills which can fly under the radar but will allow him to carrying his game forward and adding ancillary skills. Jordan isn’t flashy but is effective in facilitating play. He’s quick and clean on his feet, showing effectiveness in speed changes and angling with strong edge work. He wisely utilizes shoulder checks, surveying the landscape on his puck retrieval and make his passes seem incredibly easy. He can handle pucks relatively clean and move pucks with time sensitivity but isn’t about flair unless he reads a situation where he needs to change lanes and then his ability to express a skill is on display. He angles off wingers to the outside and can then close on them very quickly. He is often separating the player from the puck or causing them to lose control, but he’s usually focused on boxing them out or pinning them so he’s not the one transitioning the puck out. Jordan can leave pucks unprotected at times but shows a conscious effort to get pucks back to his hip and mask his intentions and enable more effective handling methods. He could be a bigger shot threat and one who slides into the zone to make himself a funneling threat as he gets comfortable in doing so. But for the most part, he shows an understanding that he’s most effective when he draws pucks to the middle of the ice and he is quick at picking lanes as they develop in an evolving landscape. The killer instinct that he possesses is a few layers deep but it’s something he can grow with. He will need to defend with his skating more effectively moving forward, as he can stick with nearly anyone in transition. He needs to trust an assertive style of game play and learn how to efficiently head off chances before zone entries as sometimes he can start to backpedal as a default reaction. He has some decent understanding of stick placement and is learning to use his body but he could play with more width to box out his man, as the versatility to play aggressively is there. He may not be a massive point producer at the next level but he is a guy who could become a proficient player.
