Jarventie is a prime example of a player who has some impressive individual tools but is still trying to figure out how to put everything together. He has a large frame with long limbs, however, he still needs to add muscle in both his upper body and lower body to fill his frame out, though he’s able to hit a solid top gear in open ice because his stride mechanics are smooth. His edges may not be elite yet, but he is good at shaking off opponents when he has the puck, using quick turns and pivots to spin off checks. His shot blasts off his stick with speed, accuracy and deception. Has a decent nose for the net when his team has control in the cycle, helping him score garbage goals and tap-ins. Pretty much everything else about his game, however, is a work in progress. He has trouble processing what’s going on around him, hurting his ability to get involved in the play because he’s a step behind everyone else. For a guy his size, he doesn’t use his frame or get his hands dirty nearly enough. Can play chippy at times but isn’t very responsible and takes bad penalties. Defensively, there’s lack of engagement for stretches and he misses the opportunity to eliminate trailing options and workmanship to tie up a check. None of what he lacks is insurmountable, but teams will need to understand they are getting an immature player who will have to improve his team game.
