Seth Jarvis Inks Deal with Carolina

The 18-year-old forward played for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL last season. In 58 games he was well over a point-per-game pace, notching 42 goals and 56 assists for 98 points. In his three seasons with the club, Jarvis played 130 games, scoring 56 goals and 81 for 139 points. The Winnipeg, Manitoba native was one of the more highly touted prospects of the draft, and part of another great draft class by the Hurricanes.

Jarvis’ skating ability is top-notch, notes Last Word on Hockey writer Ben Kerr. In his scouting report on the player, he speaks highly of his offensive game. In the article, he writes, “Jarvis is a pure sniper. He has an excellent array of shots. He can score with his wrist shot, snap shot, slap shot, one-timer, and even his backhand. All of these shots feature power, accuracy and a quick release.” His style of play adds another offensive weapon to a Hurricanes system that has helped and is helping develop players like Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov, two elite scorers in today’s league.

What This Means for the Future

With the condensed schedule due to the pandemic, as well as the Canes deep forward group, Jarvis will likely not play a whole lot this season. It wouldn’t be out of the question for the front office to let him play the first nine games of the season, similar to how they did with Martin Necas his first season of professional hockey. Jarvis is another great addition to the Hurricanes prospect pool. This list includes Ryan Suzuki, Dominik Bokk, Jake Bean, and plenty of other top-tier prospects of the last few drafts.
