Breakdown

Jackson Hallum is going to end up a star in the league one day baring any setbacks. By that I’m referring to an heart condition or something along those lines because this kid can flat out play. He continuously shows glimpses of a superstar in the making every time he steps on the ice, and his talent is to not be misjudged.

Hallum has been on people’s radar’s for awhile now, but he didn’t really start rising up the boards until this past season. For high school he attended St. Thomas Academy in which he performed every season.

In what I presume was his freshman season, he played in 25 games and had eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points. Which, given the fact it was his first season for an academy, he played pretty well. But things only got better from there.

Hallum, looking ahead to his final season for St. Thomas Academy dominated. He played in 21 games in which he had 17 goals and 24 assists for 41 points. Almost averaging two points per game at a academy level is pretty impressive. What’s more impressive is what he did the following season for the Green Bay Gamblers.

Hallum just finished up his second season with the Green Bay Gamblers and boy did he play well. He finished the season playing in 39 games in which he had 21 goals and 27 assists for 48 points.

Hallum is an incredible skater with a ton of speed that he uses to beat players to the blue line, on breakaways, and moving to the inside to approach the net with better angles. Furthermore, he is also a great all around offensive talent.

He shows the ability to handle the puck well, he scores well and he shows potential to make very good passes and become a good playmaker. Obviously given his level of competition, it’s hard to really gauge how he’ll do when he starts facing tough competition, but he’ll find out this season when he arrives at the University of Michigan.
