RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After helping Providence to the NCAA title last spring, Jankowski opted to return to college for his senior season. He wouldn't have received much of a shot with a Flames squad awash in a sea of forwards, so he will instead attempt to lead his college team to a repeat. He had 27 points in 37 regular season games for Providence in 2014-15, as well as four points in four NCAA tournament games.
A teammate of the Flamesí top goalie prospect, Jon Gillies, at Providence College, Jankowski showed some improvement as a sophomore for the Friars, racking up 13 goals and 12 assists over 39 games. Still, Jankowski, the Flamesí first-round selection in 2012, is still believed to be far away from contributing to the parent club. The organization remains high on him for his skills as a skater and his soft hands, but his development isnít going to as quick as initially hoped.
The Flames have high hopes for their recent first-round pick, but will have to wait awhile for Jankowski, as he will start at Providence College in the fall. He's small and a bit of a project, but his offensive skills rate highly.
