    Solid two-way defender with size who moves very well and keeps himself engaged at all times..keeps a tight gap and possesses very good backwards mobility…is quick to the puck and makes crisp, accurate breakout passes…owns a very hard slap shot but gets his wrister off in a hurry…aggressive mindset and looks to line up a shot below the circles…Turned the puck over in the middle of the ice twice on one shift…can fumble around with the puck at times but has a general understanding of where pressure is coming from…makes proper reads and times his pinches well.

    Defensively St. Ivany uses his reach and active stick to take away time from his opponent and does a good job challenging plays at his own blue line and closing players off to the outside against the rush. Jack needs to add more grit and physicality and make things harder on opponents in front of his own net and in puck battles as he has been susceptive to losing battles. St. Ivany distributes the puck well on break outs and is able to stretch the ice using his vision and passing ability. He possesses good puck skills and is able to carry the puck up ice and through traffic when the situation calls for it. St. Ivany can run the Power Play at the point efficiently.

    Jack St. Ivany - Sioux Falls - 6 goals, 30 assists, 36 points in 54 games

    In his second year of draft eligibility, the Manhattan Beach, Calif., native made huge strides in his game. He plays a ton of minutes and is counted on in all situations. He plays on both the powerplay and penalty-kill for Sioux Falls, flourishing in both roles. Offence isn't the only area of his game that took a big step in 2017-18: Ivany's play in his own end has come a long way and he's developed into a very strong defender.
